I looked for the report or flag buttons on a hub for so long it's embarrassing. I'm sure I must have looked right at them but I figure rather than waste more time hunting for them, I'd just ask people who know.
A bunch of lenses that were full of plagiarism that I unsuccessfully reported back when they were lenses just made the transfer. Maybe this sounds obsessive but seeing them earning tier payments on Squidoo while stealing views from the honest writers of the articles really, really irritated me and I hate plagiarism a lot more than I hate littering.
Now that we are somewhere that removes plagiarized material even if it's not the copyright holder reporting it, I'd like to report the stuff. How does one report plagiarism on HubPages?
My apologies if this is a stupid question.
At the top right hand corner of hub, there is a small flag with Report next to it. Click on report.
You can also go to their profile page, click Report which is at top right and give reason with link to spam, to plagerized hubs, etc.
There is also a report button in the top right corner of each hub, just above the hubber's profile picture.
