X Rated Hubs????

    I have noticed lately more and more what I would call X-rated.  I don't think they are for general audiences.   Has HP become more liberal about the meaning of general audiences???  Anyone else noticed this?

    I've not noticed.  I'm probably too selective of what I actually look at here.  If the title doesn't "grab me" then I just don't read it.

    Also, my hubs do sometimes feature some zingers, but I try to make them clever, and not overt F bombs, or whatever.

    I do get really irritable sometimes with people in these forums and let fly a few.

    Mary I think some of the hubs you are seeing may be in need of flagging if they are of the types mentioned here -

    http://hubpages.com/learningcenter/Mode … ol-Content

    it has definitions of what is considered unsuitable for hubs.

      Thanks 2uesday, I've checked those guidelines when I'd  Hub Hop because I didn't want to flag someone's Hub unnecessarily.   I probably flag too many, but I'll leave that up to the moderators.  Most of the ones I flag I don't consider x-rated, just over promotional, etc.  Some are so borderline, I don't flag.   Maybe I should flag those that I believe to be too explisite.

        So long as I have have 3 medical hubs languishing there with adsense ads disabled, I flag anything remotely blue.

        Flag the borderline stuff and let the moderators sort it out.  If the Hubs aren't really in violation, it's no harm, no foul.

    Some of those more adult hubs might be allowed if they're within the guidelines and most will likely have ads disabled

    Why not flag them?  If they are okay the hubstaff will just clear the flag.  No harm, no foul.

    I've noticed a few hubs I thought shouldn't be on because of what I thought was also X-rated. I can't even get my horned toad hub on with adsense ads because they consider it x-rated I wonder how some of these hubs are getting by.
