I really wish there was something to tell you why a hub has been flagged and unpublished. One of mine is marked 'needs revision' for adult / mature content. It's on 'the best sex satire'. It has no dirty pictures, a couple of funny videos that appear sexual until you realize what is really happening, and links to funny articles. I have no idea what it is that has been deemed innapropriate. Its not meant to be sexy or dirty - its meant to be funny. Is the whole subject taboo? Is anything with the word sex in the title an automatic no no? Or is there something more specific?
I can't revise it if I don't know what needs revising. I'm very disapointed that hubpages has refused to publish it without even giving me a reason.
* Sexually explicit writing, including descriptions of sexual acts or practices
* Nudity (including strategically covered nudity, see-through or sheer clothing, and close-ups of breasts, butts, or crotches)
* Lewd or provocative images
* Images containing the URL of sites with adult content
* Excessive profanity, or profanity in the Hub title
* Content on sexual aids, toys, or enhancements
* Fetish content or content with sexual intent
* Penis enlargement content or products
* Links to sites with any of the above
But where? As far as I can see my hub has non of these things. There are no images of people at all. There is no sexually explicit writing. There is no profantiy. There is no serious writing about anything sexual, hence no content on sexy toys or viagra, and all the links are to humour sites which happen to have posted a funny article which somehow relates to sex or relationships.
I'm quite annoyed about this because I really have no idea what anyone could have taken exception to.
There are certain words that you can not use, and I'm sure that is the reason.
What word did you use? I'm not really sure?
Niether am I, that's what bothers me. Unless the word is 'sex', which surely you must be able to use, I have no idea what there could possibly be in this hub that breaks the rules.
Yeah, lol I was going to say to you maybe it is "sex"... Lol, but no way..
It depends too on how many times certain words are used. I had problems writing hubs with the word 'sexy' in it (sales hubs). Took a few 'sexy's out and it got published.
Adsense is rather prudish though (these restrictions are mainly because of adsense). In reality, the question is: is the content of this hub suitable for an 8 year old child?
Moderators never specify, unless and until you ask them. So, go for it. Send them an email.
I'd like to do that weblog - where so I send an email to? I could reply to the one they sent me, but I just assumed it was automated and noone would read any replies. I guess I could try anyway - it doesn't say not to reply.
Always E-mail the HP team (unless you really see what it is right off the bat).
They have pointed out things that I would have never dreamed was a problem so I could fix it.

We all want hubpages to be full of hubs that are informative, containing facts, well-researched observations, or personal insights in various areas. Yet some of the most popular hubs are, frankly, JUNK, IMHO. Here's...

I would love to have some guidelines about what constitutes 'adult content'. In two recent hubs I wrote about how to make love in the woods and in a car...with no "graphic" detail that I am aware...
