Got a duplicate content warning but then it went away?

    I just got done writing this LOOOOOONG hub that was about 3,000+ words and it was all from my own notes on a documentary I saw and some other information added in there... so I was writing the hub from my own words, the notes, into my own words once again, the hub.

    I had the window open a long time, maybe that's part of the problem, but when I went to publish it... it said that a lot of my content was on other pages?

    So I figured I'd go through, copy and paste the contents of a text capsule into Word, then delete it and try to publish the hub... good idea, right?  It'd tell me right away which capsule had the "guilty" content in it.

    So I started with the first capsule that had the introduction in it... copy, paste, delete, publish... it worked!  It published it without any duplicate content error!

    So I decided to check and see if that capsule really was a problem and popped it right back in, and saved it... no duplicate content warning?

    So... was the first warning a faulty warning?  Or what's up?

    Sounds like it was a hiccup. That's a technical term. big_smile

        If it does happen again, it will probably be a separate issue and may mean that it was stolen.

        Edit: So don't go re-writing it. smile

          Yeah I'm not planning on re-writing it... I'll just wait and see.

          If it pops up again I guess I'll start editing that intro and go from there... I have already dealt with people stealing my content; it's not fun having to contact them to take it down.
