Someone posted about a 500 word comment on one of my hubs, which is usually great, only this comment was pretty much just copied from the safety page of a natural health website. I'm thinking I should delete the comment because it's just duplicate content? It's really good info but I think in the long run I'd be penalized in the Serps?
If the information is good and applicable, would it be a good idea to provide a link to the original content? That is, delete the comment, but provide a link either within your Hub, in a link capsule or in a comment of your own, to the content that was copied. Not sure whether this is a good idea or not, but maybe something to consider?
Because I am a crafty fool I would copy the comment, then re-word the comment and then using one of my other hubpage accounts post the comment, so that it's a different comment altogether but re-worded.....either that or use it as a basis for a new hubpage, these comment spammers have to be useful for something right?
Waynet... you mind works overtime doesn't it...
I love the idea of making a hub taking ideas from the comment and linking the two together.
Thanks may use it later if I have to!

I flagged two new hubs that I saw in my feed this morning for copied content, and each of them had been published in at least four other locations?Surely, there is a better automatic filter that HP could use to help stop such blatant spamming of the internet - it's not even as if these article were...
