I would be pretty mad too. I don't know why they would say it's duplicated. You copied and pasted it from something like WordPad or WordPerfect right? It's not like you were copying your own blog from another blogsite.
Maybe she did write the article for her local newspaper not realising it would also be printed online? If I was her I'd be feeling pretty embarrassed about starting a thread about it, but hey come back OP its an easy mistake to make!

Ah...OK. I just found what Lynne already found. What a cheek! She's stolen another hubber's content! And her other hub looks like it came from an email but I haven't found its contents online...not yet!
Well, he/she plagiarized a newspaper article and then two Hubbers and got caught. It seems like he/she would be contrite, maybe remove the Hubs and put up some original work, but instead he/she is furious that Hubstaff made him/her remove it. That speaks more about his/her character, to me, than the plagiarizing itself did. Really creepy and a little scary.
Mikel just a little question I am inspired to ask you as I feast my eyes upon this adorable little smiley.. Do you roll around the floor when you are cracking up laughing?. Oooo I would love to see that. Omg I hope you have carpeting at your house... :0
Please don't copy anymore of my hubs. It is not fair to me or to you as a new writer here. Thank-you Barbie..... I had many writers here alert me to the fact that my hub had been copied. Honestly by writing your own material you will gain a genuine respect that copying some-one's work will never do.
Well, as long as that is the Norma you said you stepped on after sex with your 'neighbor', the day you were wearing stillettos... Not that I really remember what you said about the whole incident... (the day you coouldn't figure out the safety lock on your lighhter and there was that strange hissing sound...)
hahaha yea that is her Mikel. You have a brilliant memory. Gawd I tell you what she didn't look too attractive sitting there looking like a shrivelled up prune.I had to go out to the shed and let him borrow my bike pump as his father pinched his to fix his car. Poor guy I mean how could he say to his father, "Give me back that pump it belongs to Norma".
Oh I want to go for a ride today. Hey Lyrics we could be Thelma and Louise and Mikel could be Brad Pitt. .........(BP scratches her brow).....mmmm just thinking was it Thelma or Louise who ended up with Brad?...Me thinks this idea may have its drawbacks.
It's a life size wrinkly doll that you blow up Lyrics. You know the idea behind floaties well that is the same thing here kind of. Anyway they sell them at Adult shops to men who don't want a complicated relationship, hence the man takes his new lover home. I have a bit of experience with them, my friend has one, and I accidentally deflated it with my stilhetto one night. It turned out ok, it was nothing a little puncture kit could not fix.
It has all these things I'm telling you Lyrics....I should know he hid it under my bed for a week, while he went out of town with friends. I got to have a real close up look, at the many mechanisms of Norma herself.
Oh you have the best ideas. Without a shadow of doubt I will haha. Ooooo already ideas are flooding in. I'm going to dedicate my hub to you Lyrics.I will start working on it tonight woo hoo. You have the best ideas. This is going to make Cal my mate down the road might proud I can tell you.
When I was a bus driver the funniest thing I ever saw left on a bus was an inflatable doll.... with a puncture! All of the drivers on the very late shift took 'her' in to the canteen, and traced the puncture back to her groin. Having fixed it with sticky tape we blew her up properly and hung her from the top of the full size bus wash (like a huge car wash). A load of lads leaving the neighbouring pub saw her hanging there, ran into the bus garage and stole her. We didn't stop laughing for days over that incident.
Hahaha I can just imagine Misty. We have yet another thing in common. Maybe we should open up an emergency repair shop for ladies with punctures. I'm sure I am not the only one around that accidentally stands on one and deflates it.
Mmmm don't know what category to put her under. There is a Games, Toys, & Hobbies → Toys category....nah misleading....Health → Fertility & Reproductive Health → Sex Life...well she does have fertility issues and she is normally in good health if no pricks get at her....oh Lyrics do u have a suggestion.
Hey Cags I am doing great and you... By the way have you ever been on a date with a girl who looked a little rubbery around the edges... I am compiling a wonderful hub exposing more rubber than in a school room.
Interesting aside about this thread-- it was originally posted by someone complaining about duplicate content. Now it has gone to the subject of another form of duplicate content which is also never quite as good as the originally created piece.
