I know that many people within hubpages do not see a need or use for Any profanity but there are many other hubbers that would disagree. Whether it be in short stories or relaying a true conversation from the colorful, real world, where most of live, we should be permitted the use of limited profanity. However, for those folks with stringent disapproval of All Curse words, I'd appreciate the ability to forewarn them by way of an up front, Clear Warning that would state something to the effect of: 'WARNING - May Contain Language of an Adult Nature.' This should satisfy those hubbers or outside readers that feel curse words in any frame are nothing but distasteful & markers of an uneducated person, as well as satisfying those of us that come from a more open-minded, colorful lifestyle that don't feel the need to limit the ways in which we express emotion.
Why not just write: 'WARNING - May Contain Language of an Adult Nature.' as the first line of your hub?
MelissaBarrett - I was under the impression that any curse word of any sort, including if it is Not actually cursing but instead of a medical nature, was prohibited. I've seen a couple of threads discussing this where I suppose certain hubs were not allowed to be published because of certain words that were "Flagged." So, that's why I thought if it would be permitted but regulated, with an upfront warning, then that would satisy everyone. I have since read that some hubs have apparently slipped through that were Choc-Full of offensive content & people were wondering how they slipped thru the cracks.
My hub on a perfectly innocent kids video games topic, was not allowed to have advertising. The name of the toy was skylanders molten hot dog. I found this a bit frustrating as it gets quite a lot of traffic. Does hub pages deal with profanities and words that might have double meanings in the same way?
