I have had Hub content stolen by Answers.com. Has this happened to anyone else?
Answers.com published an 'article' called Ten Things Americans Don't Know About The UK, which had exactly the same paragraph headings as my Hub, Ten Things Americans Don't Know about England. Theirs was the dullest, least informative web page ever. With the help of the Hub Pages DMCA complaint template, they changed the headings and apologised. I wonder how many others they have violated. If you Google your own Hub titles, do they appear elsewhere?
Often. Content theft is highly problematic here unfortunately. The good news is that DMCA complaints are highly effective and there are plenty of resources here and many hubs on dealing with plagiarists and how to file etc.
Thanks, Christin. It's sad to hear that theft is so prevalent from this community. Greed is everywhere. Arseholes.com, sorry, Answers.com 'apologised for any inconvenience'. I have asked them to apologise for theft, but have had no reply as of yet.

I came across this hub and almost fell out from shock! Is stuff like this really allowed on HP or should it be flagged a hundred time to get it off quicker?http://hubpages.com/hub/SHIT---3-Main-Categories

Obama constantly says things like “Folks want answers” and it almost seems degrading. Maybe it is just me.
