Does Hubpages use extreme censorship regarding ads?
The warning read,
Moderator Note: products
* Sales of weapons or ammunition
* Sales of prescription or illegal drugs, or drug paraphernalia
* Sales of alcohol or tobacco (including electronic cigarettes)
* Links to online gambling sites
Do you think this is extreme? Pepper spray, a weapon?
If HubPages identifies this item as a violation of the TOS, you should remove the ad. It's not censorship. The TOS prohibits advertising certain items in order to comply with Google AdSense policies. You agreed to abide by the TOS when you joined HubPages.
So, pepper spray that might be used to prevent rape is considered a weapon just like a loaded AK47 used in a mass murder. Is that right?
I have no problem adhering to the Terms, A definition of 'weapon" would be nice.
A weapon is anything you use in a physical exchange with another person. If it's not clear to you, perhaps that's something you should address with HQ through the help wizard, instead of as a rant about censorship in the QA.
