I got a 'This Hub needs to be revised before it can be published' note on a recent hub I did titled "Collected Scratchings" that stated 'A substantial portion of the content on this hub appears on other pages' - these were all original poems that I wrote and have not published anywhere, not on another hub here or anywhere else . . . what gives? I was told to 'contact us' - who is the 'us' I need to contact? The hub is at . . .

That link only clarifies that 'substantial similarity' issues can be included in the moderating of delicate content - these are poems . . . I have a couple of other hubs that feature poems, but not these poems and not any that could be counted as having a 'substantial similarity'.
Have you ever posted those poems ANYWHERE else online? Facebook? Entered them in a competition on a site like poems.com?
I'm sure I have not - I may have shared 1 or 2 of them privately with an individual online, like in an email, but I don't think I've even done that . . . if any of them were ever posted anywhere online publicly it would have been like 20 years ago on the old FidoNet BBS and I don't think I ever did that - I think there's been some kind of mistake in marking my hub as duplicate or substantially similar material.
