Because of the content (it's about how breasts can affect a woman's confidence, so there are some 'bad' words in there) my Hub has automatically had the ads removed. I thought it might be a problem, so I e-mailed the Hubpages team to ask if it was okay. They said it was and that the ads should be put back on by them at some point. I was just wondering when that would be? Has anyone been in a similar situation before? Should I wait to publish it, or publish it without the ads?

Thanks for answering! I've been really careful with phrasing, pictures and the like so I really don't think it is offensive, but I guess time will tell! So the ads reappeared on yours before you published it the first time? Bit confused, sorry!
I published it without ads, then contacted HP, made changes, and had ads up for about a month, before they were once again removed.
Junkseller's response is one that seems to meet my questions on this. I have not had this happen as of yet, but it's good to know how to handle it well.
Correction, it's a crossed out dollar sign, not a skull and crossbones. I was confusing it with the skull that comes up for violations.
Thanks for answering! I did actually try searching for a few of the words that I thought might have set it off and came across your Hub. I was wondering why yours still had ads but mine didn't... strange! maybe I'll just have to contact them again,
Those scanners seem to be a law unto themselves. I wonder if there is any way to find a list of the particular words or phrases that trigger the shut down?
Haha, I doubt it - that would be almost helpful!
Thanks for commenting! They did say it should be okay as I described it to them, so maybe I should let them know it's ready for publishing now, and ask them if they think the ads can be put back on.
