I'm seeing a lot of hubs with the F and the S word in them, its making me scratch my head. Are they ok to use sparingly? What about words like hooker, prostitute, damn, hell, crap? Because I know how much Google Adsense is against "vulgar/offensive" content or so I hear, so can anyone clarify?
"Excessive profanity" is against the AdSense contents guidelines, so it depends both on the words themselves, the context, and on the frequency of such words. If in doubt, you can contact a moderator and ask for an opinion prior to publishing.
Whenever someone's comment has an "iffy" word I won't approve it. Usually (if there comment was otherwise worth even addressing) I'll type in my own comment and say, "Fred, sorry I wasn't able to publish your comment. If you'd like to re-submit it without the 'iffy' word I'll be happy to publish it."

So, I'm not sure, but I think the judicious use of the two words I mentioned are not problems. (Maybe I'm wrong, though. )
Well I don't use actual bad words.. but I had used ass-kicking and that passed the HP computer filter. But I had come across the "t" word meaning breast twice, in my hub hopping, the first I let go but the second one I had to flag and question if it was acceptable because it was in the title and it passed HP filter.
I was hub hopping and had to flag a few hubs for being substandard (word count). One hub had exactly 10 words and 2 photos. There should be a way the system prevents you from publishing a hub like that except if it's in...
Are we not supposed to be notified by e-mail when we get Ads disabled on HP, or do we just happen across them as I keep doing?I had three disabled this morning and not a word from HP as to why. And it's a moderator and...
