How about a separate forum just to report stolen content so that others will know to look there?
Only if we use Ben Dover and Detective I.Will Kickurarse as our Role Models
By the way, I just had a disturbing email who said they found their content at another site but (I quote)
I did not want to put this in the forum, since I do not want this person to create problems for me
I wrote back saying that they have no reason to fear a content thief, but I really wonder how widespread this attitude is.
This reluctance is what helps these parasites live.
This is an excellent idea. I hope the HP Team give it the go ahead.
Everybody should try wikiwheels.com as ihave already found some of my content there and feel like there is bound to be at least one hub from every popular hubber there.Check it out,im currently dealing with them!!
I went to wikiwheel and noticed quite a few articles looked very similar to some I've read here! I think everyone needs to go check that site out! I'm sure quite a bit of their material is stolen from right here....
such as-- I was reading one of their articles about self conscious or God Conscious and I'm almost sure I've read that here! A dead give a way is it mentions "hub" in the body.... It says "In this hub I'm going to..."

I just found that one of my Hubs was stolen in June 2014 and published in a magazine. I wouldn't have found out about it except that they have now put their magazine on-line. It was stolen by a slick looking magazine in Australia, and I am from the US. I told them if it wasn't...

After more than a year without publishing any hubs, I've decide to start publishing again. First two items on the agenda involved finishing an unpublished hub and responding to comments. Then I decided to investigate whether any of my hubs have been plagiarized and copied elsewhere during my...
