Deleted By Bubblews

So after being a member for over a year and following all of the rules, I have been deleted by Bubblews.

I signed on this morning and posted an article about my toddler. It was about her and getting freaked out by the automatic flushing toilets.

About 10 minutes after I posted it, I got an email saying my account was deleted for plagiarism.

This makes no sense to me! I didn't plagiarize anything!

I sent an email asking for them to tell me what was plagiarized. I am not not expecting a response from them. I haven't heard anyone get any good news from them.

Oh well! If they are going to delete a good member of over a year without any question, then I don't think I want to be there anymore! I certainly don't want to help them earn money if I am treated this way!

I can also say that I filled out the forms for missing payments. I wonder if this has anything to do with it also.

Anyone else been unfairly deleted recently?

I haven't heard of it happening but I'm not very active there at all.

I'm sorry to hear/read this but, congratulations on being ct from a bad team. They can only cut yo loose, once you can make them a blogging topic from now on.

Hopefully that is not the one that they think I have plagiarized!

I was not very active lately there either.
Guess now I will not be active there at all!

Thanks!
I was not that active there lately, but it still makes me upset to just be deleted so quickly after being there for so long!

My account has not been deleted but I can no longer log in because I am from Pakistan. I am sorry to hear that you got deleted but you can still start a new account . Sometimes using same posts on different websites with different pen- names can be the cause...

I was deleted on November 3. Reason - not original content. I vehemently protest as to the authenticity of this accusation. I will not ever post a "not original" content to destroy my good record in bubblews for over a year and a half.

Perhaps, that is bubblew's scheme - delete those good ones because anyway, there are new members coming in.

In Bubblews, you are presumed guilty even if you prove you are innocent.

BigDreamer wrote on November 12, 2014, 10:06 AM

The only places that I write articles on is here and bubblews.
I never copied my posts to any other sites.

So people from other countries can no longer log on?

They said mine was because of plagiarism or not original content.
All of mine were original also!

BigDreamer wrote on November 12, 2014, 2:13 PM

Yes you are!
I was so mad! I have been there for over a year and everything was original!

I simply can't understand what is happening over there any more. Rumors about what you do and don't get paid for anymore fly everywhere. Official announcements are non-existent or hidden in posts of the head honchos, but we don't always see the notifications for those posts. I think the site is ready to implode. I'm sorry you've been treated unfairly. What probably happened is the someone stole one of your posts and published it somewhere else and it got caught in whatever filter the site uses, if any. Or someone mad at you for some reason might have accused you of a violation. Did you properly attribute your photo? That's all I can think of that could be wrong.

I sure did, just like I always do.
I used a Pixabay picture and included a link back to the picture.
It would have been nice to receive an email telling me which article they said was plagiarized so that I could have defended myself.

I know that members from Pakistan,Bangladesh and Vietnam have been banned. Not sure about any other place.

BigDreamer Thats stinks. Wow. That is horrible. I bet someone that works there made a real big mistake. I would be fighting this. Thats how I am. Don't give up until you get some kind of answer.

BigDreamer wrote on November 14, 2014, 9:15 AM

I am not going to fight it.
If they do not want me writing on their site, I won't.
After all, it is our writing that is earning them money.

I'm sorry your account was deleted...it seems they are incapable of figuring out who the real plagiarists are and end up deleting the honest bubblers.

inertia4 wrote on November 15, 2014, 7:20 AM

BigDreamer I understand that. But I would never give up until I have gotten a coherent reason as to why. And also to remove all my content.

BigDreamer wrote on November 17, 2014, 10:40 AM

It does seem that way.
It would be nice if they would have responded to my email asking about it, but I have heard nothing.
