I don't get a thrill from being a tattle tail, please understand. But if you flag a hub, can that person somehow find out that you flagged it? Or is it anonymous?
It is anonymous however when flagging make certain that you are definitely doing the right thing. Sometimes e-mailing them directly and expressing your concerns would in some cases be more appropriate.
But possibly maybe more dangerous given the amount of damage some hubbers have had when their adsense codes have been stolen and used inappropriately - if the hub is substandard, spam etc just flag it - the admins will decide
I was just curious, oh and believe me, I'd let that person know and would make sure I wasn't making a mistake. Thanks again!
Its really funny you should ask that........since your article on manx cats is taken word for word from the published book
Manx cats by Karen Commings

Maybe you thought .pdf's were not searchable?
So why would you run around flag happy when your just a one week old thief?
And then bernes mountain dogs is copied from wikipedia - as their are the occasional typo - it would seem as you actually retyped it...so good for you
rather than retype the .pdf book you stole from google,,,,you could have printed the page, then scanned it through OCR - that would have been easier.
So why is it that you want to flag people
(my bad I was TA for a while and newspaper editor - so I tend to find plagiarism a little more criminal than the average fella)
I would flag you....but its not really worth the effort of clicking
more likely the OP wants to find out who flagged him or her (-:
Sorry, was it pointing out the blindingly obvious? I tend to do that.
"Blindingly obvious" may not be apparent to some of us who occasionally blink.
It was enlightening to me. Thank you.
(I rarely deal in sarcasm, if that is what you were thinking.)
It wasn't that obvious, I didn't think of it. Then again, I am not that bright.

If we flag a hub, does it say which hubber put in the flag, or is it anonymous. I mean, could someone turn around and flag your hub to retaliate? How does it work exactly? Thanks.

I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in...

In light of the Google algo change, it is now obvious and confirmed that hub-hopping is VERY important. I feel that if you publish here, you should hub hop when you can. As it should hopefully increase our revenue and...
