Humour is good for your health and humour can also include a joke or two. My last hub "Humour for Hubbers - updated" was knocked back as was said to be a duplicate ie. on another web site. I don't dispute this.

A duplicate is a duplicate, and recipe instructions are under copyright. Recipe writers either create or modify what they post.

I am a little frustrated with the duplicate content thing as it applies to recipes. There are a lot of recipes hubs here. Anyone who is doing a recipe hub is taking a recipe they like and making a hub for it. With the millions of recipes online, you are going to have some problems trying to make it...
