Duplicate flag - please let me know if this is o.k.

    I wrote an article about Wikinut's Terms of Use and quoted a large section of the TOU in the article to save people from having to go over there and read it.

    Of course, I got a duplicate flag. Does staff moderate these flagged articles if we don't do something to remove the flag themselves?

    I did not duplicate another article somewhere else or plagiarize anything, I just copied the relevant portion into my article.

      Hi Amie!

      We don't generally review these unless a user requests it (usually by emailing us), but since I happened to see this thread I checked over the hub and it seems like you are quoting responsibly, so I cleared it for you.

    btw - very occasional duplication on hubs is ok and will not adversely effect you as long as it is your original work.  Quoting seems to be pretty excessive if duplication flag comes up - wouldnt it be better to summerise and add a link at the bottom of your hub?  Just a suggestion for the future smile
