If you publish a hub and then add it to a forum post - are you not creating duplicate content?
Duplicate content is not allowed at HubPages. You cannot publish anything in a hub that is anywhere else online even if it is your own work. I just thought it might help to make you aware that if it is anywhere else on the internet even here it is likely that it will trip the the duplicate content filters.
OK, the above post by me looks odd because the original post I was referring to has been removed, just explaining. It did not have links and was a duplicate of a hub they had here.
