My name is sylvester carter
i have sent a unique articles
initially it was ok but now showing duplicate article
what is this it is totally wrong that was my own article i have written that plase take immediate action otherwiase i will removed my account
Do you mean the ones that you wrote and posted to goarticles?
Because they would be duplicate articles - i.e. posted at more than one site and therefore not "unique."
Plus you have stripped the links out of that article about losing 10 pounds. Which is against the TOS of goarticles.
ciao Dr. Slyvester.
Please look up the meaning of the word 'duplicate'.
Why don't you take a look in the mirror and take a reality check, your attitude stinks. What kind of delusional freak thinks that anybody is going to care about your thinly vieled threats to "remove your account". Your just one more, one more statistic, just one of 88000. There are 7 people that work for hubpages, yes 7.
This is the new me everybody, I say it how it is. Carter, you can't spell, your not a customer, nobody cares about people threatening to leave until they have earnt substance and respect.
Shut the door on the way out.
I am not usually one to point out spelling errors, but if you are going to go off on someone because they "can't spell," it is a good idea to make sure your post is free of spelling and grammatical errors. Let he who is without sin and what not...
I would recommend using Firefox, which has a built in spell checker that helps me out everyday.

This is not about spelling is about being an idiot. It looks as you don't know how to read !
Yip, that is why it never pays to be a spelling or grammar nazi.
Lol, I have been bitten by that bug a few times myself.
Now, I usually try to only be a a spelling Nazi Nazi
Good Good I I am am glad glad that that you you never never make make mistakes mistakes
Lol, that double Nazi was actually intentional. I was trying to be funny.
Read it as "Spelling Nazi" Nazi. As in a Nazi that only targets spelling Nazis.
What he wrote was called sarcasm. Besides, I have had spelling and grammar cops on my arse before but only to turn around and make the same mistakes... it just leaves it all open for me to be a smart arse.
Its not like I go round pointing out everybodies spelling mistakes is it? This man is a plagiariser, a cheat, and he deserved every bit of my vitriol.
And a plagiariser (and yes I can use an 'S' for that), who has stolen somebody's hard work, didn't deserve my criticism? Next time I will praise him for his innovation.
I never said he didn't deserve your criticism and in fact, I also have a very low opinion and tolerance for scrapers and spammers. To be honest though, I think that Mark Knowles initial post said all that needed to be said on subject.
My point is simply that if you are going to criticize someone for their spelling, you should make a point to ensure you do not have a number of glaring spelling errors in your own post. Otherwise, you risk looking ignorant, unintelligent, and petty.
To travel down a slightly slippery slope, this would be akin to calling someone out for being a thief, as you stroll out of Walmart with a stolen radio in your pocket.
*Didn't know you could use an "s" in plagiarizer. Is this a British spelling?
You can use an 's' or a 'z' least that was acceptable at my posh school lol.
Thank you for your completely irrelevant Walmart analogy.
Yes I can spell Plagiarise with an 'S', it is not a British spelling, it is an English spelling. I write in English, you just claim to write in English.
Since writing here on hub pages (I'm English) I see a lot more "z" characters than I'm used to - I'd write plagarise, too, and moisturiser, and diffuser. And as you mentioned later, theatre, centre, metre, that kind of difference.
It doesnt bother you though? Not that we would have a right to be bothered, as its an American site!
Do you use Microsoft Word though? It really bugs me when they tell me I am spelling English words wrong! There must be over 15 million Microsoft Office licenses in the UK, enough for them to offer UK English as a language pack!
If you find HubPages to be of no use to you, you may leave for all who cares.
It's one thing to really be confused when you really are sure your article is unique and you get the message about duplicate content.
It's another to come on here ranting and raving when you really know you are trying to screw with the system.
Sorry about your luck dude but there are people here like Mark who are way to intelligent to be fooled into feeling sorry for you.
Have a great Hubless day.
Hello, I'm new here at HubPages. People I never met have become accustomed to copying all or part of my articles and posting them on their websites along with a link to my original article. Could that become a problem regarding the "unique content" requirement?
Yes I think it could Mary, although I do it on my own public sites, i do not think it would avoid flagging if others do it as well. I change my "snippet when I post it so that it describes the hub a little differently to the original article snippet. Hope that helps.
The rude and arrogant assumptions made against hubpages without any valid reason, and when it is your own fault deserves an apology.
Say sorry, wake up or piss off!
I know I move pretty slow here compared to some but I take my time and write quality, original content. Even with the small amount of Hubs I have and the short amount of time I am here I do understand the inteligence of this place.
Because you have in some way screwed up it really is inappropriate to blame HubPages or didnt you think there was enough knowledge here to bust you.
Good work Mark
Thanks for responding, Mark. I suppose it might help to type a paragraph asking people not to copy the content from my HubPages posts for their websites, since that could make my articles have duplicate posts on the Internet. But actually, one has no control over that happening.
Your paragraph wont help. dont waste your time.
A "snippet" will not effect duplicate content filters in hubpages. Those links back to your original article are actually valuable.
If they are stealing and posting your entire article than that is way different story.
Even so, your original Hubpages based article will most likely outrank any stolen content on a scummy little blog - there are of course exceptions but this is for the most part true.
I take it you didnt like what Hubpages had to say to your responses.
Is this post to help your cause?
Hows it working for ya?
I think you approached this the wrong way, sly. The thread's title, "Hubpages is fake", is bound to get a nasty reaction from people.
If you'd asked nicely you might have gotten somewhere and may have even received a civil reply.
I'm sorry these posters have been less than helpful. The truth of the matter is that they are jealous of your drive and determination to be a success with HubPages. Please follow this link to discover the key to being successful as an online writer. http://hubpages.com/forum/post/285659
Best of luck, don't let the haters stand in your way brother.
You are quite welcome, I hope it helped put your response in perspective.
I never said you couldn't spell it that way and in fact checked the dictionary before responding to ensure it was correct.
I was simply curious as to the etymology of the word. I find that kind of stuff interesting and often prefer the British spelling of words, like theatre, to the American spelling.
Here are some more examples of differences between American English and British English, as from your response, it is not clear that you are aware that there are many subtle differences between how English is used in different countries.
To provide you with another "irrelevant analogy," Mexican Spanish can be very different from Honduran Spanish.
Yeah but there is only one true version of English - that in the original Beowulf!
Obviously I joke! Although I must say it is annoying when spell checkers online tell me that the word realise, centre etc etc is not spelled correctly. It is in England (and in fact if you spelled it the American way in many English exams you would be penalised).
I have always been partial to Kipling's Gunga Din myself, perhaps because it is a good deal shorter and a great deal more modern
I really should go back and try Beowulf again though, because the last time I was still in grade school...
I run into that a lot when I write about computer programming or Linux. I always worry that Hubpages is going to ding me because of too many "spelling errors."
This is quite possibly the most patronising thing that anybody on here has said to me to be honest. I am English.
English as in American or English as in British? Just curious because now I am confused about what you two are jabbering about.
I think that he is just pointing out that 'English' is spoken differently dependant on where you are from. And I am just saying that I know that.
For example, I spell plagiarise, Americans spell plagiarize. I say criticise, Americans say criticize. Americans say gas, British say petrol. What you call pants we call trousers, we know 'pants' as male underwear.
Microsoft Office has what they call 'American English', so it would tell me that plagiarise is spelt wrong, but in my school English class we would be told to spell it plagiarise.
The most frequently spoken English is American English, because of the tendancy of places like China to buy American textbooks. Of course, Microsoft Office is also a global piece of software - so those with English as a second language are often taught 'American English'.
'English' as in the traditional and original English is probably most commonly known as 'Queens English'. None of this bothers me in the slightest, just as long as we Brits preserve our traditional use of the language.
I just felt patronised because the whole world is beginning to speak 'American English' and as an Englishman, I didn't need to be told that. Microsoft Office tells me that every day. Just as long as they teach it the same way in our schools, I am happy for people to speak English however they want.
See, and that is why I asked if it was a British or an American spelling.
However, rather than responding rationally, you resorted to ad hominem, which made it appear that you did not really understand my question, as English probably wasn't your first language.
Given the attitude you displayed in this thread, I find it hard to believe that you have many positive conversations on here in the first place.
To be honest, I don't really understand what it is that you are going on about, or why you are going on about it. I am English, you are American, to me that is quite simple.
actually, if you'll do a bit of research before going into the downgrade mode you'll find that much of what ryan has to say is quite informative. in addition, the information is based on a young man with a quiet confidence and assurance that far exceeds that of several people on here who are light years older than he. it would be most amusing if we were to discover your age to be more than 21.
I think if you took the time to read through our complete exchange before going into downgrade mode, you would find that I responded in a mostly courteous and rather lighthearted matter through most of it.
Ryan's responses, on the other hand, have not exhibited the same emotional detachment, nor have they portrayed the type of attitude you describe.
Therefore, I think I am completely justified to say that given my interaction with him, I would be surprised that he doesn't get into similar arguments on a regular basis.
Why cant you just leave it alone? I know that I can be slightly antagonistic sometimes, but I personally believe that you are being a little too aggressive and confrontational. Sorry, but if you are after a full on argument with me about something so petty then you aren't going to get one today.
Why don't we both just walk away from this thread, which is probably unsettling other hubbers, and let it sink to the bottom of the pile?
I have never encountered you in this forum before, and.... well, quite frankly dont mind if I dont again. But Im sure that we can both exert enough self control and maturity to avoid unneccessary confrontation. There are hubs to be written and read.
I simply am responding to you, as you are responding to me. It is a two way street.
I even tried to make small talk with you, because you were obviously upset, hoping that we could engage in a rational discussion, only to have you resort to insults.
Agreed on both counts.
it's good that you feel justified. it's also a good idea for you to sit down, do a bit of research, then come back here after you've been "surprised." the keyword phrase here, for you, is sit down.
I tend to use US spelling since most viewers are American. I also think there is a difference between bad spelling on a forum than in an article. Here it's not that important.
It doesn't bother me, no.
I use Open Office, and have an English English dictionary.
gets really boring reading people fighting on here. Reminds me of stupid Ixenland....
What is it with the dogs on this site? Not you of course, Blue Dog
I have almost posted the same thought before. Maybe Blue Dog needs a new handle?
it is amazing, isn't it. one of my dogs, blue, 16 years old, a mixed breed, is such a class act, having taught me so much over the years, especially during the last two and a half. then i see a couple of these clowns on here (no, not you, marinealways, you're way above them), actually three if one counts the known plagiarizer, using dogs as their avatar in hopes of cashing in on the feel good vote, so much so that i find it all rather annoying.
I can't speak for everyone, but I try to be a little bit careful with my identity online, so tend not to post too much personal information. I felt using a picture of my actual dog was a nice compromise, because it is a real picture and not just some clip-art, but isn't personally identifiable to people who don't know me.
Bravo Ryan Bravo! that is what makes you a better man. to stop the fighting and walk away. Good for you! and by the way...did you make a new account? if you did add me again!
Their are peoples who earn tons of money from hubpages. I believe they all are real. I believe hub pages is massive and successful.
A young child once asked the singing/ukulele-playing icon Tiny Tim if he was for real. Tiny Tim responded, "Oh, yes! I'm very much for real."
If Tiny Tim were with us today, I think we can all rest assured he would tell us that HubPages is very much for real.
getting your article copied sucks! but don't worry there is a thing called karma
There is a story about a copycat and a real author in China... its too long and I'm making it short nyahahahaha...
The only way to know who is the real one is by this:
Let him continue writing... about the story...
There is just 2 issues here to speak with:
1. You have posted your hubs in other site earlier.
2. Or you're a copycat for there is no way you can fool Hubpages scanner.
