    This site : http://www.imfirst.info/ is another one filled with hubs, Ezines and goodness knows what else. I've seen quite a few hubber's content on it, mine included.

    Knock yourselves out, if you can be bothered hmm

    Firstly you should not post a link as you are promoting them secondly if it is so boring why did you bother posting this thread?

    Just curious 8)

      Are you purposely antagonistic, or is it entirely natural? Stick with asking for help, rather than poking a hubber that's offering it.

        Perfectly natural. I did not mean to offend, however it is just the way it came across in your wording.

          sjwiggly please be informed that content stealing is a major issue here so when a veteran uses irony to share it, well, ...

          I will assume that you took his language too literally...

            I am very aware of the seriousness of content theft. For a veteran to be so flippant about such a topic surprises me as well as posting a link to the offending site.

            Obviously we are only allowed to post overly positive comments and not to question. Fair enough I will in future remain silent.

            Although to be fair, the Frog should be experienced enough to know how to provide the link without making it live - which gives them a free backlink.

            Thanks for letting us know about it though, Frogdropping.

              OMG, a REAL free backlink form the GREAT Hubpages forum?! I can image this will boost that site's credibility to such an extent that our articles here won't stand a chance at competing any more. Good for them. Frog, you ruined our lives! Seriously, we should all head over to imfirst.into and see if they accept original content too.

        Thanks for the heads up and effort FD.  smile

        Isn't it sad that they steal our works and not the work of those that have absolutely no appreciation of the efforts made by many of us to help the members of the community do their bit to help fight article theft!  roll
        Good to see those green hind legs of yours alive and kicking the butts of jerks, thieves and badly wired tadpoles Andrea.... you rock!!  big_smile

    I can't help but wonder why Google and the other search engines don't have a disclaimer or warning on the top of the page ,stating that duplicate material will be deleted?

    No, Sjwigglywoo smile we just get tired and weary of those pesky DMCA's. Once you get attacked regularly, am sure, you'd feel the same way.

    @frogdropping, hugs. At least it can all be done from comfort of your chair wink can you imagine if we had to be there in person? yikes

    Oh my giddy aunt. I pop in to leave a heads up and what a load of noise.

    I left the link as is because really it's easier for everyone to find. No biggie. I'm past buggering around in order to calm the sensitivities of all and sundry.

    As for wiggly chucking the dummy out, give over. No one said everything has to be all 'yayyyyy go you' cheer-leading codswallop. But really? You were antagonistic. And for what reason? Better you do remain silent than hit the keyboard with ill-thought out responses.

    psyche you made me holla out loud for real, thanks lol

    Haunty - oh yeah. Imagine the boost that damn fool site got from little old (green) me smile

    Horatio - you got it. Oh wow. I almost felt like ending that sentence with 'babe' cool

    Seriously guys ... it's all just a ride and sometimes the world looks just a little bit flat. Especially when it's written from a keyboard and delivered in 2D text.

      Which is why I stay away from here for the most part. But I love it when I do come here and something makes me laugh out loud.
      It's all just another day with the happy Hubber family.
