    Can I appeal against  a "This hub contains text that appears on other sites or Hubs" warning?

    I am unable to publish a Hub because I get the warning "This hub contains text that appears on other sites or Hubs, or is substantially similar to another work, and cannot be published."

    The Hub (which is all my own work) was previously published on Google's Knol website; however I unpublished it from Knol before trying to publish it on HubPages. So it is not actually duplicate content!

    How do I get my Hub published?

    Here's what the FAQ has to say about duplicate content. 

    http://hubpages.com/faq/#duplicate_content

    Please note that any content that already appears elsewhere on the internet, including leftover in web caches and even if it is authored by YOU, is considered duplicated.

    Thanks Relache, I've removed the content but it is still showing in Google search results so it looks like I have to wait for Google's cache to clear...
