Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 18.104.22.168
all subdomains are having high PR and rankings as well. Is there any rule remains for duplicate penalty. Content might be copyrighted to but it does not mean that they can publish the same content on 25 subdomains and ranking high.
The site is not worth of anything bcoz there is no actual information.and all pages r having a search form to search.
Anybody... any idea about it.
For spam reporting, use this form on the Google website: Google: Search Quality and Your Feedback [google.com]. Be precise but brief in your note to Google. Report both the actual search keywords and explain the problem you see.
MY concern is not to report anybody but just curious about to know how this bull**** content is doing excellent job over the engine. And all sub domains r having excellent rankings beating high competition. Bcoz as far as the duplicate content is concern, google is not leaving behind anybody but still... strange.
Degree of the trust might be a case for not supplemental results. But since this website is born, they have the same content. and degree of trust would have come later on. Now the thing is, how google leave this website in initial stages when they all sub domain were child.
anyways.. thanks for your precious time an comment..
My second site which is "authority" in its field, I had the same content management script, but that one never lost its rankings for very competitive keywords.
So yes there is a sort of filter which does not hurt "trusted" sites (at least at the moment) for duplicate content issues. For the sake of it I am trying to de-index all the duplicates from both sites.

My experience is that it *does not hurt "trusted" sites AS MUCH* -- but fixing duplicate issues and such still helps the URLs perform a lot better in the SERPs.
The high PR (or trust or whatever combination of factors plays in here) may help the URLs not to be classed as Supplemental so easily, but they still may be "omitted results" or ranked lower than they could be -- because different versions of a URL are siphoning off Page Rank, for example.
