      Now that is nuts  big_smile this has been happening a lot lately I have a feeling it is a system glitch.
      I had disappearing comments, I posted it and when I went back it disappeared. Maybe I have just been on HubPages a little to long. smile

        Maybe someone copied and posted it elsewhere.

        People can get duplicate warnings if they copy and paste (which I know your did not) but also when someone else has  "borrowed" some of your stuff. have you run a check?

          hmmm, I think I know what may have happened- I wrote and saved it from another site, (Yuwie) so maybe thats what happened. I put the other one on "inactive" so maybe that will fix it.
          Or maybe someone did put it elsewhere, I'll run a check on it.
          Thanks!

          Rochelle, That is valuable information I did not know that others could do that, that certainly isn't very nice. sad  Now I know what to look for if that happens to me. Where do you look?

            No, I'ts not nice! (But it happens.)
            There is some site that can do it--- but I usualy just put the first sentence-- or some other unique phrase from the article in quotaion marks and search it on Google.

      http://www.copyscape.com/    is the link to finding out whether someone is plagiarising your work - free for the first few times (25 I think) then minimal costs to continue (100 checks for I think $5.00)  - hope this helps. cheers

      When you submitted for review earlier today, it was cleared.  False positives do (rarely) happen, so when that happens you can just request a manual check from me.

        I requested for an edit/check for one of my hubs and i was informed that it usually takes 72 hours (3 days) but it's been 5 days and i haven't heard from anyone.  Please advise.  Thanks big_smile

    I think your other copy on yuwie is the reason. If you removed it from there, give it some here, time, it does not happen overnight smile
