I've just seen that one of my hubs has been flagged up as having been copied. Someone has copied it word-for-word on Yahoo Answers. What should I do about this? What will be the effect on my hubscore?
What is the purpose of two threads on the same topic?
I know for a fact, this issue you are having has been constantly addressed, if you only do a search of the forum threads, you are likely to find your answer.
However, I would suggest you have two options (a) do something about it, like contact Yahoo or (b) do nothing.
That's about all I can offer.
Edit: Here is your other thread http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/49212
Cagsil, Thanks for your reply. I realise that I posted the same question twice (see my reply to myself, above!) It serves no purpose, it wasn't intentional, and I don't know how it happened...
I did do a quick search for similar questions (hmm, not my own, lol!) before I posted, but didn't find any. I will search further, I appreciate your answer.
I responded to your other thread, in case that helps.

I posted a topic on, 'I will definitly publish 70 hubs a week because I got time for that'. Nelle Hoxie and Marisa Wright advised me to review and have good layout on my hubs, also I need to write over 800 words for my hubs to be ranked by google. Today I check my hubs and they're all been flagged...

I understand that Sandpit is "good place for long meaningless threads" Yeah, a good place to unwind. All works and no play... Yes all that but why are more than half of forum topics games and plays? Don't get me wrong. I also love to play but maybe there is a background info on Sandpit...
