I deleted it, rewrote it and tried to publish it again, after having made many changes. Still it says duplicate. It should not say this. It is my work.

Thank you for your help. I will google and see. I did have this particular hub posted on another blog but did remove it prior to publishing it on hubpages.
This is so interesting, and makes perfect sense of course. It has not happened to me, but I will certainly keep it in the forefront of my mind, as a lot of us do not only write for HP. Thanks for your explanations, fellow Hubbers. Always great people
That was what I hated about the process: the initial presumption was that I had copied someone, when the truth was exactly the opposite. But luckily, publication dates told the tale very clearly.
Good thing it got cleared up. When something like that happens, it's good to know that you are in the right, and if the truth ever comes out, people will know that you are in the right.
That is my experience too.
Hopefully your problem gets solved.
was the text that you found your own? if not, 17% non original may be enough to get it flagged
HP support has been realy helpful in resolving these sorts of problems, as long as you explain as much as you know
That might be the problem, even though it doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
That makes sense.
i've always found hp support helpful -- easy way to check your hub is copy 4-5 lines of text directly into google & see what pops up. i've seen where i delete an amazon rev, but other sites continue to show it. HP always eventually approves
