I have 150 hubs, and until the last 24 hours only ever had one pseudo-duplicate flag from the system.
Now Ive had 2 in the last 24 hours - whats up with that?
The first one has been removed, now Im waiting for the 2nd to be removed. It sucks, because it screws the hubscore up until its removed.
Cant you make it so hubscore isnt affected until someone verifies something is a duplicate?
It doesnt seem fair to the rest of us.
I'd be willing to bet that more of the hubs that do trip the duplicate flag are actual duplicates and as such, it's better for the HubPages community that suspect hubs get held back until they can be reviewed. I've only had one hub trip that filter, and it was reviewed so quickly, that slight delay had no adverse effect on it overall.
As to why you got 2 hubs that were flagged, if I were to guess (which is all I can do given the info I have) I'd say it probably has the most to do with your subject choice and then what resources and content you included.

Why does Hubpages keep calling my hubs "Duplicates"?Why does Hubpages keep calling my hubs "Duplicates"? It is really frustrating to spend an hour or so typing a movie review and trying to make it perfect just to have it be deemed as a "Duplicate"???

I have never had this happen to me but I noticed today that I had a hub unpublished because of duplicate content it says... The written content in the hub is NOT duplicate. I wrote it myself. It does have photos in it that are probably other places like Pinterest etc... but this has...

I was just checking my stats when I noticed that a hub I published on 1-7-07 has been flagged and incurring a HP penalty for duplicate content. It's my highest earning hub and HP giving me a penalty-and then asking me to wait 72 hours for a review on something I published a year ago is...

I have read how hubscore is computed but was still surprised the other day when I saw a hubscore of 1. It just is somewhat amazing to me that some hubscores are 10 or below. Don't get me wrong----I'm really not trying to be judgemental or holier than thou or anything it's just I...
