    This person
    http://hubpages.com/profile/sizlu

    is copying and pasting articles from various catalogues and health sites on UV Swimwear. Every one of his articles has the same title...except for one... He joined 3 hours ago and has 8 hubs already.  It was so easy to find out it was copied. Who knows, maybe he thinks writing is just copying and pasting others work.

    You can be an honourary canuck...notice the spelling smile

    I have come across another hubber who copies and pastes articles from various websites, the only thing that states it is another's work is "source...and the author's name". He has over 300 hubs and the 5 that I checked were all the same. Some people don't realize that just because you put "source" doesn't mean you shouldn't at least re-write it in your own words... I don't know how they don't show up as duplicate, I found them in Google right away.
    I quoted from a speech by RFK and had to be given a pass on that.
    I don't get it.

      When you find hubs that are reprinted from somewhere, be sure to flag them as "duplicate."  That ensures they get scanned for having duplicate copy.

    Gamergirl, you're a natural Canuck!  You're already embracing the 'eh'!  Welcome.  Your honorary toque is in the mail.  The moose and mountie will follow separately.

    Re the plagerism hubs, I don't understand how one person can copy a bunch of articles and not get noticed, while Uninvited Writer can't insert a quote from a famous person.  I haven't been here long, maybe that's why I don't understand.

    Notice that I spelled honourary in the American. 

    I like to return courtesies.
