How can a writer authenticate originality of a piece?
I wrote an entirely unique and original piece on Princess Diana's death. Today, HP removed it as a "duplicate". Other than the lyrics to Elton John's Candle in the Wind, which I posted in closing, EVERYTHING was original. I have removed the lyrics, but the "duplicate" notice is still there. At this point, what do I do?
You can use an online resource like copyscape to prove that is original, and then send in a help ticket so someone can manually fix it I guess.
Did you post your Hub to any other sites like perhaps your own webpage or another blog?
I have not posted it anywhere else. I've posted HP links on Facebook, and it's been tweeted and shared, but other than that -- no.

I am doing a 20 "such and such" quotes about "such and such" hub. I even went back in after they marked it duplicate and made sure 400 of the words are my words, even though I know people googling it aren't going to want to read my words and are instead just going to be coming...

My jaw has just dropped. Please bear in mind I spent two years in London working as a copy editor for two different publishing houses. I do know my grammar.In addition, I waited nearly three weeks for the edit to be completed. That is not normal. I wrote the piece on the 18th September and it was...
