    This guy: http : //www.triond.com/users/snowneo has taken at least 3 hubs, check to see if yours are there. If you are a Triond member, flag him.

      Well caught Susan!

      I went through his list and while there are none of mine that I can see there, has nicked a huge amount of hubs, many of which were recently in the hot hubs list.

      Edit: checked again and yes he has one of mine. DMCA getting filled out right now.

      Thanks, Susan.  I hate to be obtuse but I can't see where his articles are listed.  I can't figure out Triond, really.  I only see his profile and his list of friends, no content. 

      Can anyone enlighten me?

      I know I'm being dumb...

        I think his profile has been suspended and articles no longer viewable. I tried to follow a link below and article was removed.

        Looks like they have all been removed. But why not ban him also?

          YAY!!!!  I can't imagine he wouldn't get banned.  But, stranger things have happened, huh?

          Thanks for being a good watch dog, UW!

      This guy is on hubpages. He follows me, will be right back. I need to go find out his name.

      1. Just Ask Susan profile image89
        Just Ask Susanposted 5 years agoin reply to this

        He's here on HubPages still and uses the same name that he does on Triond.

  2. Peter Hoggan profile image74

    One of his articles is ironically titled 'Meat Theft: Funny Until You're Caught'.

    tlpoagueposted 5 years ago

    I couldn't tell if any of mine are on there, but it is obvious that he is taking someone's work and using it as his own. I will have to take a closer look for mine.

    1. Uninvited Writer profile image82
      Uninvited Writerposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      He usually uses the same title if that helps smile

    I don't know how Triond works, but each of his stolen articles are on other sites. The one he stole from me is on socyberty.com, whoever they are.

    Yet they are all listed on Triond?

    1. Uninvited Writer profile image82
      Uninvited Writerposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Triond publishes your work on various sites depending on subject.

  6. skyfire profile image75
    skyfireposted 5 years ago

    Socyberty is just another trionds website. They separate content as per niches.

  7. IzzyM profile image89
    IzzyMposted 5 years ago

    More bad news.

    The site he lists as being his on that Triond page is full of stolen hubs.

    http hmm/snowneo.com and it seems to be a mirror site of http: //hubpage.info

    1. Uninvited Writer profile image82
      Uninvited Writerposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      But he has Google advertising on that site smile

      I haven't found any of mine copied so I can't file yet another DMCA with Google.

  8. paradigmsearch profile image94
    paradigmsearchposted 5 years ago

    Just for the heck of it, I checked out triond.

    They are a PR 5. HP is a PR 6.

    They only accept original content (supposedly), that has never been previously published elsewhere on the net. So they're not even any good to use for hub zero-traffic leftovers that one might want to try moving somewhere else. And they only pay 50%.

    Please forgive me for asking this question.  I am new to this,  but why do people want to copy other people's hubs?  Why don't they want to write their own?

    1. skyfire profile image75
      skyfireposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Why parasites need a host with sufficient resources for survival? The same reason scrapers act like leechers for the content. It saves their time and they can make money too.

    I sent him a friendly message!

    marriedwithdebtposted 5 years ago

    Nice work people. Guy's profile seems to not have any articles up anymore, plus the article I linked to above says no longer posted.

    Let's keep watching each others' backs.

  13. Uninvited Writer profile image82
    Uninvited Writerposted 5 years ago

    And the first one I saw explicitly said at the top not to use article without permission. Show that that does no good unfortunately.

  14. wordscribe43 profile image93
    wordscribe43posted 5 years ago

    Is it just me or has the theft gotten a lot worse lately?  Or, perhaps we're just better at finding the thieves...?

    I don't know, but I'm impressed how well the community pulls together to stop these jerks.

    Good work! Thanks, Susan smile

  16. marriedwithdebt profile image76

    This guy is here on Hubpages. Joined a week ago under the same name.

    I think he should be banned from Hubpages.

    It is clear he is only here to steal our articles. He probably plans to publish articles he steals from Triond on here.

  17. IzzyM profile image89
    IzzyMposted 5 years ago

    His one hub is spun - "Garden function is an all-time preferred of children that are looking to create a little bit of additional cash." or "Pet seated has also become very well-known over the last season or so."

    This breaks HP's TOS, so flag him.

  19. Uninvited Writer profile image82
    Uninvited Writerposted 5 years ago

    It is possible he could be using someone else's name and picture. Sorry to sound so paranoid, but it's been done.

    1. IzzyM profile image89
      IzzyMposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      Not just possible - probable.

      For anyone to use spinner software so badly, English certainly can't be his first language.

  20. Uninvited Writer profile image82
    Uninvited Writerposted 5 years ago

    He seems to be gone from Triond, I can't bring up his profile.

  23. Winterfate profile image99
    Winterfateposted 5 years ago

    He stole one of my hubs yesterday, and I took immediate action.

    While I agree with the fact that he might be gone from Triond, my article is still over there, in full copy-pasted glory. hmm

    I let the employee know that I'd be back later to check on the article...

    Anyways, just want to take a moment to thank my fellow hubbers, especially Writer Fox who helped me deal with that problem. smile

  24. marriedwithdebt profile image76

    Question to all who had articles stolen - did you get a Duplicate Warning on your stolen hubs?

    Just wondering how I can stay on top of theft, other than manually checking all my Hubs with Google or Copyscape.

    1. wordscribe43 profile image93
      wordscribe43posted 5 years agoin reply to this

      No duplicate warning when mine have been stolen, unfortunately.

      So, yes... you'd need manually check.  sad

    2. Judi Bee profile image99
      Judi Beeposted 5 years agoin reply to this

      No, I got no warning.  Marisa Wright has a thread in the "make a suggestion/report a problem" forum in which she suggests that HubPages discontinue the checker since it apparently only checks your hubs when your traffic is over a certain level. 

      Clearly, my traffic hasn't hit that level (no surprise there then!)  I take Marisa's point that the promise of a duplicate warning lulls you into a false sense of security.  If it doesn't appear, you assume all is well.  But it isn't. 

      So, best thing to do is make your own arrangements for checking, in whatever way is best for you.

  25. Winterfate profile image99
    Winterfateposted 5 years ago

    I got a duplicate content warning...shortly before my hub got unpublished although it clearly pre-dated the offender's copy-pasted clone. However I already cleared this up with Hubpages and my hub has been republished. Now I'm trying to get the copied article taken down from Triond.

    Marcus Arse.. How can you forget that? LOL

    Look, the poor guy is just looking for love. I saw him on a dating site too just waiting for the woman of his dreams.

    Yeah right!
