It's against HP's and Adsense's TOS to write on mature subject matter in which "excessive profanity" is used. Let's say you get a comment on a Hub in which the commenter used the F word once: Should you delete that comment or publish it? It's the only profane word used in the comment.
I've experienced lessser single words than that which got ads disabled in a heartbeat.
I'd be on the fence on that one not knowing the context. With it being only one word, it might slip by - but seeing the word that it was, I would probably not post the comment.
If you know the commenter and can explain the situation and ask them to repost their comment sans F-bomb that could be a way around it.
I have used tame curse words in hubs - one even in a title - but it was a humorous piece and there was nothing even remotely adult about it. The Fbomb though I think trips filters pretty easily.

A visitor to one of my hubs left a long, passionate, and relatively well-written comment..But he threw in some f-bombs.. Should I approve it?Will Google penalize me for allowing comments with some profanity?
