i had the ads disabled on one article. This has left me with questions.
There was a warning i read that if it happens a number of times that I publish content that can't host ads, that my account may be suspended. Does this also include when I publish an article such as it was - an important and good quality one, but it still sets of the sensitive matter filters due to the odd word used?
Can I still insert Amazon links, eBay and Amazon capsules too?
How do I know if publishing the article endangers my account?
Yes, even Hubs deemed socially or otherwise valuable can get ads disabled. I could provide a reason for this instance if you let me know which Hub it was.
I recommend you take a look at the list of sensitive topics provided in the FAQ. Your best bet is to proactively disable ads on Hubs that contain sensitive content, particularly photos. If you are not sure, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and ask before publishing the Hub.
Occasionally, our filters might not catch something and the Hub will be published with ads. This does not mean the Hub is immune, however, as Google AdSense also tracks the content its ads are shown on, and can disable your AdSense account if it deems the content unsafe for advertisers. If this happens, it can take several weeks to reinstate ads on your subdomain (yes, if Google disables your account it will disable AdSense ads on all of the published Hubs), so I suggest preemptively disabling ads on delicate topic Hubs.
Typically, you can get ads reinstated once you have removed the problematic content from your Hub.
Hope this helps!
Looks like neither of these Hubs are published. If you publish them (take them out of 'edit' mode), you should start seeing ads!
It's one of the annoying things about Adsense. They have strict rules about sensitive topics. Unfortunately, because they police those rules using automated robots which can't read context, they just look for "naughty words". That yields some odd results. For instance, an article ranting against drug use is just as unacceptable as one promoting the use of drugs. I know Hubbers who've had ads disabled on Hubs about breast cancer because of the word "breast".
The bottom line is that yes, you can endanger your Adsense account by writing about these subjects - and other people's, too. One of HubPages' competitors, Wizzley, had Adsense disabled for the whole site because one member posted "unacceptable" photos! In general, if you feel inspired to write about topics like this, you're better off putting them on a blog which doesn't use Adsense.
I have a blog called PlainTalkforWomen.com which accepts guest posts and doesn't use Adsense, if you'd like to contribute an article.

Well, that’s nice, very nice. I haven’t got a clue of what I did wrong. And after filling in the online appeal form they told me they had reviewed my account information, taken my feedback into account, but still had concluded that my AdSense account has posed a significant risk. And I have no...

Have any of you found detestable ads on your hubs? It is a "game" with girls in bras...how distasteful I want it off my hub...do you know if we have a say in this? It has nothing to do with my poem and is disgusting to me.

Heads up to those applying for an AdSense account! After publishing about 10 hubs I applied for an AdSense Account and was declined due to the standard lack of content. After publishing 16 hubs, I reapplied and was hit with with the following warning as I was about to leave the HP site...

I have a hub about Suicide on the Golden Gate Bridge that was published in 2009 and has been read more than 71,000 times and another on the status of the Golden Gate Suicide Barrier that was published in 2011. Ads on both of these hubs were just disabled today (05-19-13), can anyone tell me why?...

Is it right for ads from Adsense to be on display on hubs of a person with disabled Adsense account? It somehow hurts to see those ads, knowing you cannot earn from them anymore. Or is the community benefiting somehow from them?
