I'm writing a hub about sexism and there are some profane words relevant to the topic. Is it acceptable to name those?
If so, will that be a less respected hub?
If it's permissible, is it better to use symbols to block out certain letters in the profane words?
The rules for Adsense and HP is Excessive use whatever that means since there is not any clarity. More than likely you will get flagged for adult content. You are better off with putting this on your own blog or web site, than here.
I had the ads on a hub turned off just for using the word "sexy". And you definitely can't use the words <snipped>, <snipped>, <snipped>, <snipped>, <snipped>, <snipped>, or <snipped>.
Okay. The piece I'm working on might be too provocative for HP. Thanks!
You can always do a "Disclaimer" at the beginning informing readers that the topic contains harsh language. Otherwise, you could do like "@#*" for replacements.
Please remember that elementary school children come here to get information on many topics. Keep it clean!
I was just going to ask a question like this. My next poem has one curse word that I think without it in the line would maybe not be as effective. So, my question would be; should I find an alternative word? I don't want to but I will if it's a big issue.

On thinking about the 2 hubs that I just did, I'm thinking I should have split them into 3 hubs each instead of 1 hub. So instead of 2 I would now have 6 - they would have been shorter and probably clearer. ...

As fast as I'm trying to fix up hubs that are unfeatured, the problem isn't that there is something wrong with them, but that they are being unfeatured as a result of lack of traffic. Isn't this short sighted? Some...

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...
