I thought I was sending to a bookmarking site and now I believe they take articles and distribute them all over the web. I looked at one of their sites, and entire articles are there, available to publishers. The two articles are from Hubpages. I had to send my name etc, the URL and a brief summary of the article. I think each one went to about 20 sites. What can I do? Please help.
If you have submitted your articles to an article directory, then spreading them in this fashion is what article directories are supposed to do. I suggest contacting them, explain that the submission was made in error, that the materials are copyrighted and needed elsewhere, and ask them to withdraw the material from their database and any sites within their reach.
Other than that, you will have to carefully study their terms of service to understand your rights.
It seems the URL you mentioned is for sale. I am wondering to whom exactly you have submitted your articles; those are the ones you should contact.
Sounds like the right thing to do, Brakel. Wishing you luck, and maybe you will let us know how it goes.

I've been using a variety of social bookmarking sites to increase traffic and for the do-follow links, due to a great hub by Ryankett, thanks Ryan!! Recently though, on a few sites like Kirsty or Wagg, even after several months, my bookmarks are all marked as "submitted", but none of them...
