    I have never come across a site like this. It seems to offer a complete mirror of Hubpages. … 3D&b=5

      I ran across it because it is outranking my hub... I have no idea who to send the complaint to.

        Since Google has abdicated fairness and honesty with regard to original content, they no longer can police the injustice. They have turned into a bad, scummy cop. Pathetic.

    Is that the same thing as (or different from) that thing we had several months ago when there was a proxy site that was scaring a lot of people?  (I don't know how to identify a proxy site, and I'm too much of a "fraidy cat" (viruses-wise) to stay on a weird site too long.)

      If you try and sign in it gives a warning that it is a proxy site.  sad

        It is a proxy site. These type of sites help people surf when there are surfing restriction placed by ISP or local IT department. It's not a ripper site.

    Yes, I saw this site listed today when checking for copies of one of my hubs.  But when I clicked the listing it took me to my hub.

    I just braved clicking on the "sign in" to see what came up.  It comes up with a warning about security.  (Of course, for anyone reading here and not familiar with this kind of thing - never sign in on something like that, even if it were possible.)

    I don't know a whole lot about proxy sites, but apparently they let people reach sites (like this one) from computers/places they otherwise couldn't.  That last time some Italian shoe place was involved (or something like that).  A search of the forums should find actual details on it.  People could even talk back and forth on the forums on the last one.

    (Here's the one I had in mind, in case anyone is interested:

    I think this is one for Hubpages to complain about. It is taking most of its pages as well as the pages from individual accounts.

    Something is killing my traffic right now. I can't decide if it is Panda, the new format, the spam attack or all this copied content I keep coming across.

      My traffic is sort of as good as it's been for a few months now, but something's really, really, killing my earnings over the last few days.  Maybe it's just me and my own Hubs - who knows....     It's not good, though.
