    After a search landed me in a flixya page(it's rare) I went to the homepage and there I saw this "blog" as recently published.

    http://www.flixya.com/blog/2422358/Arch … -Noahs-Ark


    And here is the guy's profile.

    http://www.flixya.com/user/mysteryman


    Looks like we are going to face another wide scale theft here.

    What do you all suggest?

      I'm curious that so many things are stolen on the web. How does one find these things? The Internet is so vast that it would be the most amazing thing to find these things by coincidence, although that's how a lot seem to be finding them...

        Kushal101posted 7 years agoin reply to this

        You can easily find stolen content by running a copyscape check, Hubpages  also have built in duplicacy/copy filter though today I found it purely by coincidence.

    It's now well known what happens in flixya these days. It's hard to find any original content over there.

    If they have AdSense, you can register a DMCA with Google AdSense by clicking the "Ads by Google" link, and following it to their online form - handy. I have been doing that a lot this December - so far all has been resolved successfully - still waiting for one to be taken down.

    'tis the season wink

  5. RedElf profile image92
    RedElfposted 7 years ago

    Actually, there is a DMCA link at the bottom of his page, and every single article title looks like something I have seen on HubPages!

    You can email a complaint here (as a first step):
    contact@flixya.com

    I sent a complaint in even though he has not yet stolen any of mine.

      lol sure he didn't imagine hubbers will be over him so quickly.

      1. saleheensblog profile image60
        saleheensblogposted 7 years agoin reply to this

        my guess is he is a hubber too

          I'm hoping its not one that is posting here!

            saleheensblogposted 7 years agoin reply to this

            I hope so

            There is a software through that we can know the ip address. I have read something like this in another thread. Wait I will check.

          The way spam is increasing here( and all over the net), he may be a so called  "hubber"!

              lol
              it's his brand new account roll

              He has more in hubpages for sure if I am not way too seriously wrong.

              1. IzzyM profile image89
                IzzyMposted 7 years agoin reply to this

                Yes he does. he said he created the new name because everyone fell out with him in the forums!
                And his hub about how to block adsense ads is completely anti-hubbers sad
                What better way to get his message out?

                1. saleheensblog profile image60
                  saleheensblogposted 7 years agoin reply to this

                  roll

                  IzzyM, I found some articles on how to how to know the IP address of another computer searching in Google but I don't understand the steps sad
                  I think it can help.

                  Oh well when I logged on today it seemed it first I am being accused as the thief !!! Now, to make things clear, yes I had problem with google adsense and hence that "only" article. But don't worry hubbers, I am not promoting it and nobody is going to find it, it was just to get the message out. Though I still manage to keep my adsense account, when somebody clickbombed my ads Big G treated me as a thief, with amazingly rude email replies and all. G thinks India & China are the land of scammers, poor fellows desparate for money. Dahh, I think they need to brush up their general economic knowledge.
                  I am not here for making big bucks and I don't give a damn if I stop writing online altogether. If I gett completely pissed of with HP, I will simply move on, and not go around stealing hubs mad

                    You have never been accused as thief. I thought I was accused as thief. But I don't think IzzyM had no intention to accuse any one of us as thief.

    Also check with this person:
    http:/ /www.articlesbase.com/authors/dresseshop/691721

    They have stolen at least 5 hubber's hubs. If you write about weddings or dresses, your hub is in there as all 128 of her articles are all stolen, word-for-word.

    Arg! So mad right now!

      Really fast and thankfully without all the whining a previous thief did.  I'm glad that none of my hubs have gotten stolen.  Of course I haven't yet made them good enough to make anything really.
