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?
This guy is on hubpages. He follows me, will be right back. I need to go find out his name.
One of his articles is ironically titled 'Meat Theft: Funny Until You're Caught'.
Maybe Hubbers should start sending bills for their work, to these perpetrators,instead?
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.
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?
Socyberty is just another trionds website. They separate content as per niches.
More bad news.
The site he lists as being his on that Triond page is full of stolen hubs.
http /snowneo.com and it seems to be a mirror site of http: //hubpage.info
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?
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.
Lazy, crazy, and want a quick buck, comes to mind.
Ironically he stole some advice on what to do when accused of stealing
http://computersight.com/software/accus … -take-now/
His Twitter handle is @XxSnowneoxX
I sent him a friendly message!
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.
And the first one I saw explicitly said at the top not to use article without permission. Show that that does no good unfortunately.
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.
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.
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.
It is possible he could be using someone else's name and picture. Sorry to sound so paranoid, but it's been done.
He seems to be gone from Triond, I can't bring up his profile.
How do you flag on Squidoo?
http://www.squidoo.com/how-to-take-grea … your-flash
And check here, his articles are listed here too
Okay...enough, I have better things to do
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.
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.
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.
No duplicate warning when mine have been stolen, unfortunately.
So, yes... you'd need manually check.
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.
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.
he is everywhere
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.

Yesterday I got an email from a hubber pointing me to an article on Bubblews which was copied from my HP account. I have emailed Bubblews and they removed it. You should check the site to see if any of your hubs have been copied there.

I don't go around looking for Hubs to flag, but when I come across something with glaring issues I try to be a good HP citizen and alert staff. They have, after all, continuously preached about the importance of qualityLast week I flagged two Hubs with major issues. The kinds of issues that make a...

These Thieves are back up again.. and once again monetized with that company that has a dollar each way on both the thieves and the Copyright owners... Google!It appears that much of the HubPages content has been shifted or merely re-published with all links, authors and previous publishing sources...

I found another blogger using Hubs for content.The blog is at secondsearch.blogspot.com. He's used three of my Hubs. I've had to report him to Google because he's got so many pop-ups on his site, I haven't been able to find a way to contact the blogger himself.

Thieves are stealing our articles.What can we do?Internet thieves are laughing their heads off,all the way to the bank in many cases. All they need do is copy content, sit back and enjoy the rewards. What can authors/writers do to help stop this blatant criminal activity? DMCA filing doesn't work....
