    It is my opinion that using language that is unnacceptable to most people just to get noticed is counter-productive.  As soon as the reader begins to read the very ordinary text he will generally turn it off as a response.

    Or report it like I did.  No one wants to read that garbage.

      yes, notice that in the body of the paragraph  is the use of ***** but the title has the actual wording?

      We can delete our own part manually, but HP has to delete the title. I agree it is pretty bad. sad But as always they will take care of it. smile

          I believe they are but not always actively working on HP. That's a lot of hours to put in, been there done that. smile

    I am not sure that this is anything to get so excited about to the point of reporting it - profanities along with gross displays and some pornography are a part of art and this is a writing site.  Every reader here is supposed to be over 18 I believe, it is not as though this is a kids site - Oh sorry, just looked at the political and religious threads and apparently it is a site for backward kids and the mentally challenged so I guess we should report this big_smile

      Profanity actually violates HP usage terms.  Aside from that, I think this would be considered a hub (I guess) and it's not appropriate to put in the forums.  No matter now since it has been deleted.

    There is nothing wrong with a middle class sensibility but if that is all you have it is sad. This guy can write and he has something to say.

      What a patronizing statement!
      What rating system do I use to determine if my sensibilities are middle class or not? Is there a chance I can have upper class sensibilities one day and who is the judge?

        Since you haven't said anything, no one can anything much about you at all.

      "This guy can write and he has something to say."

      There's a difference in knowing how to write, and writing well.

    I can't understand how this made it in the first place. A while ago I tried to post an article about child pornography and was prevented ;even the title wouldn't print...
    I wish the team would remove this...it's opening the doors and testing the site tolerance

      Exactly -double standards.

      And a couple of my hubs were cited as being 'sunstandard'

      Maybe I need to inject some profanity into them ,and call it art!

    I'm sorry guys, but you should accept that 'Pricks Cunts & Motherfuckers' is the title of the novel. And if you don't like it, don't post.

      Doent matter if its the title or not- its offensive.

      And if thats acceptable to HP ,then they should not have suggested a pic of on one of my hubs about deodorants be removed.
      This one:

      <image snipped>

      Is it offensive? if it is ,why?

        In the real world you go out and you are going to see so much of this offensive form of art. In art galleries. It's because art is about what people feel and it is sometimes the only form of expression that's not trying to conceal the truth about our world.

        As for your question - I don't know. HP is so f----- up sometimes.
