Trying to be nice

    I was trying to be nice and point out to this hubber that he shouldn't duplicate his articles online and he deleted my comment.

    I guess he didn't duplicate his own article and didn't want people to know where he copied it from...

    Reported to HubPages and the EHow article it came from.

    I can see this guy/gal is a newbie and has started with some copied articles! Very bad. Very bad attitude. I don't think he/she is going to survive here for long........

    It's good to know there is a very proactive community here making sure things are ligit.  More kudos to the HubPages community.

    Well, they haven't learned. I see they took down the one copied from EHow but every other hub they have is copied from somewhere else.

    I think there are some who think that because the blog universe is so vast no one will notice when work is unoriginal, but they couldn't be more wrong.  Monitoring these kinds of things is easier than ever.  I'm sure the admins will get on this soon enough.

    Dorsi had a similar experience(http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/11324). I also saw your comment there. Hopefully we get some idea from there about how to report and take action against such spam. I think flagging such hubs will help get Hubpages admins attention to such Hubs.

    I'm having the same problem with "Odd World"  They have great hubs...unfortunately, all of them are cut and pasted from a www.darkroastedblend.com.   I have flagged them for duplicate content twice each and placed comments in their hubs.  They have deleted my comments except for the ones where I said I liked the hubs before I found out they were dups.  I stumbled on it by wanting to know more about the amusement park mentioned in one of the hubs.

      Same here KCC. By the way do you guys follow through and quit their fan club?

    Well maybe they should be given credit for copying interesting hubs . . .not!

    I quit.

    Yes, I plan to quit that one, if I haven't already.  One reason to stay is to monitor when new hubs are published.  I am grateful for them providing the info because I did find it interesting, I just disapprove of claiming it as their own.  There's lots of great stuff over at darkroastedblend. I'll just go there to see it.

      Ya this is a good way out. I would have done the same thing or additionally you can also write to Hubpages complaining about the issue.

    I actually wrote the owner of the website they were copying.  They are pursuing the matter.  smile

    I enjoyed Odd World's hubs too till KCC realised they were copied. Like the others, any comment that relates to plagiarism is quickly deleted! KCC - that was good thinking - I do hope they follow it up!

    As of yesterday (2/18) they were going to try to contact Odd World one more time and if they didn't get satisfaction that way, they were planning to ask HubPages to remove them.

    I think darkroastedblend is a somewhat famous site.  I've seen it referenced on wordpress a few times.

    The guy at DRB is super nice.  I do encourage everyone who enjoyed Odd World's hubs to visit them and give THEM the recognition they deserve.
