    This is just to say something on it really. I don't think it went through on reply back to Hubpages. It is all going down anyway.

    That hub has been on there quite a while. Since it went thru to be featured I thought it was ok. It said on your info that several people check them. It is just about robots. It was quite harmless. I noticed you added a robot category. I looked at it that there was nothing that detailed on it. You have things all over the other hubs sometimes about sexy girls in skimpy clothes. I really don't think it is quite fair. I will go along with it, I can understand it in a way. But I don't think it should be taken that way after you checked it. I would think they would be okay then. I have since taken it off.

    The other one on bustline was not a scam either. I took the link off that I thought was bothering before. I was not going to resubmit it to get hollered at. It was just about herbs. I thought women might like it. It is not all just a scam. It is something that has gone on for hundreds of years. There was nothing dirty on that either. I think it would probably be okay with you if someone wanted to do one on breastfeeding. So I don't think I did anything wrong on that either since it was not connected to advertising. That one was also checked and went thru. There is threatening language on your notes. I don't do any kind of porn things.

      I don't really want any more of these replies on here and I don't see how to delete it. That kind of thing is not helpful.

      Actually, some people have had Hubs on breast health unpublished.  The thing is, HubPages wouldn't be able to stay in business if it lost its Adsense account - so it is very, very cautious with anything that might break Adsense rules.   Yes, it goes too far sometimes - but personally, I'd rather it was over-cautious than too relaxed, because my Hubs' earning ability is at stake!  There are plenty of other places you can publish so it's not a big issue, really.

        It might be a big issue for our regular readers that find they suddenly NEED to find articles dealing with topics such as breast cancer. I personally think the continuance of McCarthy-style censorship will have a detrimental effect on AdSense's popularity. There is a difference between playing it cautious and playing the Morality Police. And ethically speaking, if Hubs are being removed or unpublished out of deliberate attempts to censor words that come straight out of Webster's Dictionary, then we might as well sew a big red letter "L" for "literate" on  all our clothing.

          Beth, HubPages does not have regular readers.  Something like 90% of HubPages traffic comes from people searching on Google - very few people (except writers) visit HubPages on a regular basis, and very few people would think of coming to to search for information.

          If people are Googling on any health topic, then they'll find a plethora of other sources of information, so the fact that topics like sexual health are not on HubPages is not a huge problem. 

          Of course we would all like Adsense to be less ridiculously prudish (not to mention hypocritical).  But it's a fact of life, and one that HubPages has to work with if it wants to ensure its survival.  Other sites have had their Adsense account suspended because a member posted "prohibited" content, so it is a real risk.

          It's your right to say, "I am not going to compromise my ideals by working with Adsense, because it is being the Morality Police".   HubPages has chosen to be more pragmatic.

            I think you're downplaying HP's popularity. My opinion, and I stick by it by virtue of some people I happen to know visit frequently and talk about the articles they find here. But if a member prefers to think it is a hardly noteworthy site that has to beg for viewing like a bacon seller on the streets of Mecca, they have my blessing to think it.  You have a peaceful night, Marisa.

              I'm not downplaying HubPages' popularity, I'm quoting statistics which have been given in the past by HubPages staff and users.   Besides, it hardly matters whether people come here to browse or not - the point is that there are thousands of other sites where such matters are written about, so if it's not on HubPages, it is certainly available in plenty of other places. 

              I can't imagine anyone thinking, "oh no!  I can't find anything about breast cancer on HubPages!  Woe is me, I am doomed, nowhere else can help me!"
