I was thinking about a hub I would write, or actually a group of hubs, which might contain the word 'whore' in the title and occassionally throughout the text.
That said, the hubs would really have absolutely nothing to do with such. The word itself only would be mentioned as part of an old saying I'd be using sort of as a catch-phrase.
Would the word by itself with never any other mention of sex in any way be a violation of the TOS or be ineligible for adsense?
It's not real important. I probably won't even do it anyways just cause they'd be more useful than productive and I don't wanna get sidetracked again right now by any new projects, especially non money producing ones, but I was wondering.
Also, it matters if it's kinda iffy with adsense, cause I wouldn't want to put my account at risk over it. But if I can't monetize them in some way then I can't spend time on it right now.
Then again, the whole thing could be done without the word, but the word would be so useful in establishing the theme and catching peoples' eyes.
Again, let me emphasize that the word itself would only be used a few times in passing, and never in any way would these hubs be discussing sex, or whoring or whatever. Just the word alone. Would it be against the TOS of HP and Adsense?
What do ya think?
You'll have to run this one past admin. Only they can tell you if you are violating the HubPages or AdSense TOS for sure.
It will get the ads turned off if it is against TOS, no matter how benign the context. Trust me. I have a hub on over-protecting our kids. It's about social trends and cultural observations and media and stuff like that. In it, I mention the fear of child molesters. I think in two places I use that term or pedophile out of like 3,000 words. Two words in 3,000. Got the ads cut off for inappropriate content. It's like the word can't exist in the Google-sphere.
So, if you are thinking about writing a thoughtful piece on culture or something like that, don't bother if you have to use important, culturally relevant language. HP is not the place for that. Submit to a journal or magazine, blog about it, or whatever. HP is a commercial only enterprise when it comes down to doing anything that might possibly piss off Mama-Google.
I use that word plenty of times...
EG "Close de darn door whore u'll let the heat out!"
Be careful. I used the words "butt," "wedgie," and "drawers" in a hub, and the ads were disabled. I didn't care because the hub was for laughs and not money, but just saying...

I found an article online that had the exact same title of one of my hubs, along with my user-name, but the article itself was not mine. I'm trying to figure out (1) why they did that and (2) if I should do something...
