    It's one thing to have to hunt down a random that has stolen our articles for another site but to have it taken fr one of our own, is highly disgusting.
    We work hard at finding topics, checking seo and making it work online and if you have to steal articles then you should quit.
    It's disgusting and unacceptable to rob someone of their hard work from our own community.
    I wrote an article on roses and their meanings and I have just got a notification. From hubpages to show articles from people I actually follow. Low and behold one of them is my own just changed up a little. All they did was change the title what to give, roses and their meaning. Shame on you!!!

      It's indeed disgusting that a hubber engages in such an activity from a fellow hubber.

          Yah. I don't understand why they can't labor on theirs. At least they can quote but not to change some sentences.

      I have just given up on having any kind of justice with the flagrant copying of my articles. The tools we are given to notify these thieves that they can't do this, are weak. Typically there is no response, or if there is a response, then it is a flagrant denial. I have dozens of warnings that I have been copied, but I now only allocate one day a month to my attempts for some kind of justice. DON

        I used to follow through and Google was very good at sorting it out but I never thought I would have this problem right here

      It is terrible if you can't even trust other hubbers. So sorry to hear that happened.

      I'm confused. I don't see any articles about roses on your profile page. Where did they steal it from? Is it unfeatured?

      HubPages has an automated duplicate content checker that should catch things like this, but I believe your article has to be live somewhere on the web. Not sure if it catches other articles on HP if they are unfeatured (that means they are not live on the web).

        It's called roses and the meaning of their colour. I see it says not featured but one of the hubbers that copied it actually follow me.sybe she thought I have been a little dormant here and she would just take my article for herself
