Have you had a problem with a hub? If the article is made up of content that has already been published on another site then it will be rejected and you should receive an email (automated) from hubpages explaining about it. Yeah, I had this happen to me when I first got started. I cant recall the exact % but it doesnt have to be entirely duplicated just a certain portion.
