She's stolen hubs from Erin Soule, Peter Lopez, and others....
Stolen content also from:
It's funny because they're pretty much all copy-and-paste or given-up on hubs after she couldn't figure out how to do the entire thing.
Like her "baby names gone bad" hub- looks like she couldn't figure out how to copy the entire thing from Peter, so she just left it!
Now that is funny. And I am somehow offended that he didn't steal any of mine. Not good enough huh?
I feel honored, this is my first time to be victimized (that I am aware of).
Thanks Ed for noticing. I flagged the hubs.
The scent was easy for my witch hunting dogs to pick up on!
haha actually credit goes to Erinn Soule as she was the first to pick up on it! But you know I have my fans' backs!
And yes you should feel honored that she stole your baby hub! The rest of us didn't have that privilege.
She only joined nine hours, "How in the hell did you find and expose her so fast?"
I have a band of croonies searching around with their hunting dogs, looking for witches to hunt!
Actually I just stumbled across a comment made on one of this girl's hubs- it was the original creator of the hub.
And I clicked on it and recognized it as one I had read before...
Then realized her other hubs were all matched to other hubs I had read (yes I read lots of hubs).
What happens next? Will hubpages kick her off? I wanna get ripped off too.
I'm worried now, I put a comment on one of her hubs.
This one is the dumbest one I've seen yet
Uninvited Writer, I like the way you so politely informed the hubber in question that her hub is a duplicate. Very classy. Hehe.
But it really is funny. She even copied the titles! And had the nerve to show her face, too! (if that is her face)
I love her profile page.
how are you , I am a good girl ,dou you like me?
haha you know the sad thing? I bet she's going to come back and see that ALL of 'her' hubs have quadrupled in popularity and # of views since we're looking at them now! Then she'll think she should go out and duplicate more!
Or maybe she'll come back and find that all have been deleted by hubpages...
Mine was copied, word by word. A stupid thing to do, I think.
I went through and flagged them all. Maybe everyone isn't doing that? I don't know how many flags it takes to auto-boot a hub. Or is that even a possibility? Maybe it takes a physical person to remove a hub. Not quite sure.
If you're going to copy, don't copy things written on the same website you're going to paste on.
Wow! Her lack of creativity is amazing - can't come up with her own hubs, and can't think of a place to go beyond HubPages...
Awwwww, man! This is the third time this week this has happened to me!!!! A couple of days ago, one of my articles showed up in a magazine in Spain.
I'm starting to lose my normal cheery disposition about all of this. Don't people have better things to do, like develop their own creativity, and leave mine alone. Maybe they could develop some ethics and a conscience while they're at it.
When I get back from vacation, I'm going to be looking more deeply into Canadian copyright laws ('cause I'm a Canuck). I'll post my findings. I'll also be sending a letter to the British magazine that printed a partial one of my works in that Spanish magazine.
Okay, I'll stop whining now. I'm in Arizona on vacation, I'm going to happy hour and then the pool again. Life's tough sometimes, ain't it?
I think people that do that are just in it for a quick buck, they aren't writers by any stretch of the imagination. To them copyright doesn't mean a thing.
By the way, Wedding Consultant - thx for letting us know! Thank God you do read a lot.
You're probably right, Susan. A writer wouldn't do that.
I guess they would steal a piece of work whether it bears the copyright symbol or not.
Well, I came to the party a bit late - she has no published Hubs now ... profile still there, though.

When I hub hop I like to take hubs that look fishy and check to see if they are copied content. This week I have found 8 hubs that were in whole or part copied directly from another page. Anyone have me beat?

Maybe that period varies. One article was checked on the 12th May. It won't be checked for 115 more days. Couldn't the checks be more frequent so we don't have all these red © symbols? Or alternatively the symbols cold be cleared when we acknowledge the notification.

We've heard several concerns about Hubs getting copied and losing traffic and we know how frustrating this is for the author. Google tries to identify the original content creator and show that in the search results. If you have a copied Hub that is getting outranked in the search...

I notice that on the "copied Hubs" page, there's a column for "removed". I've never seen any Hub with an entry in that "removed" column and there seems to be no way to mark a copy as "removed". Is there meant to be?It would be an awesome...

I have found two places that seem to be ripping off loads of hubs. rank 0 8 (dot) com - This site is posting ripped off Hubpages which they have translated into French. I have emailed Hubpages about this, and I hope they are doing something to help in the effort it may take to take...
