    What constitutes hi-jacking a hub?

    I created a hub on a a political issue and one hubber has made several comments.  The last comment I received is that: "Commenting is to limiting so I wrote a hub.  Here is the link to my hub."  My question is, does that constitue hi-jacking.  I have never had a hub hi-jacked so I don't know.  I know if in a forum, if you change topics, that's hi-jacking.  But in this case, someone can click on his link in my comment, go to his hub and never comeback!

    As the hub owner, you have the power to not approve the comments and delete them, so you don't have to be hijacked. It is against HP policy to use the comment section to promote your own work, so you are very justified in deleting this comment.

      I don't feel right deleting his comment.  I think I'll leave his link there and follow his hub and see how many are following my hub link to his hub. Thank you both for your replies. You both ge best answer status. Thanks.

    Several hubbers have written hubs on basically the same things I have written on, in some cases after reading and commenting on my hub, in other cases saying they were unaware of my hub.

    It seems to me that if the information is at least 80% different than your hub, giving you credit for any information they are using in their hub (like as in a research paper) and entirely a response to your hub, and if your hub is highlighted as the inspiration for their hub, it would not be a hi-jacking.  (Was that clear as mud?) wink

    If it's more than 20% your material, material from your hub that is not available in more than one other source online, and is pretty much just a rewrite of your hub, then I would call it a hi-jacking.

    Also, delete the comment and if that makes you feel bad, invite him to resubmit a new comment without the link in it.

    I'm not quite sure that would mean Hi-jacking. Hi-jacking to me would be 'my hub is so much better, here is the hub'. That is just blatant spamming your hub, I personally this that is rude.
