I dont know what time it is in San Francisco, but hands off cocks and on socks..... this must be costing you hundreds of dollars an hour.
This is pretty bad.... do they have a telephone number? Because I cant imagine anything more important that they could be doing to be honest.
Yes I know, they should be on around now, because isn't America time around 5 hours behind us or something...
To have all these views took away in the space of a week or so is bad shite!!
I think the west is 8 hours behind...... so its half 2 in the afternoon now for them. BUT...... it is Sunday isn't it, do they even work on Sundays?
probably not....maybe in the morning then, but someone should be checking from time to time to moderate forums or something!!
The same question must be asked of the docstoc.com staff.
Their reputation with google is about to be toast (if it isn't already too late)
There is no quicker way to go bust than losing control of your site.
They must have no control at all if someone can upload the best part of 1 million articles in a month and not get flagged.
Interesting to see what happens to them in the next few weeks.
To be honest with you, I am much more concerned that Hubpages are sitting at home eating popcorn and drinking coca-cola. They have a business with turnover which is likely to be at least a couple of million dollars a year, and they havent even noticed this themselves. What the hell happened to the plagiarism checks, it looks to me like they are being tight with the copyscape prescriptions too. I just dont understand how you can let this happen to your business, there are 7 people in their office, and not 1 of them spends half an hour a week checking this stuff. It has made me think a little about whether I should be investing so much time in trusting hubpages with my content, when I could be working towards building page rank for my blogs.
It's late afternoon and a holiday weekend (albeit a holiday not celebrated widely anymore). Hyperbole aside, I am upset as anyone to see my top performing hubs that earn me my best adsense revenue being copied but the account will all but certainly be banned once adsense receives a few hundred complaints in an hour.
No need to panic, so to speak.
I agree Ryan.
Someone should be keeping at least a vague eye on the goose that's laying the golden egg.
The interent changes so rapidly and new threats can pop up anytime.
This is a good example of how much can be stolen in the blink of an eye.
We have the right to expect that our 40% contribution to the hubpages slush fund includes a little protection from large scale threats.

Yesterday I invited a friend to try the hubpages. She declined stating that most of the staff are narcissistic head hunters who have a degree in English, play head games with the users they don't like, are unfair in carrying out their hub rules and often help the evil doers on the site if it means...

Do we need them???? Of course we do. We love them to bits!Following Inspiredpubs visit to HQ and the knowledge the staff are growing (in number, not size!), I think it might be helpul for new hubbers if the staff icons identified they were 'staff'. When I first joined it took me...

In the past many Hubbers, including myself, have seen the "Report a Problem" or "Need Help" threads as a way to either get a policy explained, or as a way to escalate an urgent problem when emails weren't eliciting a response. It is now obvious that is no longer the case,...

The entire staff at HubPages have been cloned by unscrupulous internet plagiarists, from the two Pauls all the way to Karla Clark! They have even made a cloned version of Simone, which they are trying to incorporate back into the team! What's the procedure for dealing with this? ...

I have a hub that is doing well (at least for me, as a beginner), but is not monetized because it has one swear word in it. I have written the team twice asking them if they would look at it and remove the filter. They don't answer and it still is blocked from being monetized. This is a short story...
