I occasionally come across Muck Rack while writing for clients. It looks like a writer's/journalist resource service. It's not free. Anyone here uses it?
I don't use it, but they have stolen a number of my articles (and other hubbers too.) I'd steer well clear.
Now, I remember. No wonder they sounded familiar. I had a brain freeze and my mind when blank. I totally forgot. They stole some of my articles, too. Thank you for the reminder. I will steer clear of them and tell my clients.
I think at least one of my articles may have been stolen there. what do you do in that case.
L.M., You can contact them and they will remove it. At least, they did that for me.
I was at there site but couldn't figure it out. How do I contact them?
When I would click on the links that were showing, it would bring me back to Hub Pages but it was someone else's articles.
You can scroll down to contacts on the bottom right. Here is their email firstname.lastname@example.org. They also have an 800 number.
Ok I found the e-mail and sent them an e-mail. Any idea how it works? How did you find your article was copied there?
I did a search of my name, and it showed up on Google. The response was pretty quick.

I saw it and I have some mixed feelings about it... they took a simple premise and maybe made it way too complicated. I was expected the monsters to be monsters and not adults.. but I know that was the point... Still mulling it over... I loved the soundtrack
