I was just doing a bit of hub hopping and came across an obviously spun hub. My computer is acting up right now, and when I tried to flag it, I popped out of "hopping mode." I found by searching the topic that it is a spun copy of a three-year old hub by Paul Edmonds on refinishing a dresser. I would like to report this violation, but though I have tried searching the topic, I have been unable to locate the spun hub. (Frustrating) - any suggestions?
Thanks for your diligence in hopping Hubs! If you are unable to find the Hub in search, then it has not been Featured (probably for quality) and may already have been moderated for the violations you described.

I found one of my hubs copied and badly spun on the aptly named "ArticleSnatch" Directory. It has some phrases completely intact, others reworded and some of it is in a different order. The spinner has given it a nice new shiny title too. So, can I issue a DMCA...

I know thats a bit harsh but come on.I was just hub hopping and every 6 out of ten hubs were total duplicate content. So many of them were taken right from Wikipedia.Then we hear "why is my score so low". It is great that hubpages started hub hopping. Now we can see what...

I really don't like the "new" hopper and have not bothered to hop hubs since it came out several months ago. In the spirit of helping to clear up the backlog, however, I gave it another shot tonight.The sliding scale ratings are too much to worry with, IMHO. I tried to thoughtfully apply...
