WTF..., why is this acceptable language to use here even though Google AdSense policy says no?
Why is certain acronyms like WTF, appropriate for children and not filtered out of
posts, like actual cuss
I know this doesn't answer the question, but I have no idea why acronyms are acceptable here and wish I knew. I just read another hubber's post in a forum and it was filled with acronyms and slang. I guess there is somewhere to find the answer; I just don't know where and hope someone answers this significant question.
I don't think they are acceptable are they?
The whole texting genre is actually now defunct.
In the early days of cell phones we were charged by the character so by dropping the vowels it saved money sending sms's.
There really is no excuse for using these now unless of course the person using them has poor vocabulary skills. Then I suggest people buy dictionary and learn some words!
I don't believe it is acceptable. However, the HubPages team does not know or have time to read every single hub written. Therefore, it is our responsiblity to let them know or report it as a form of abuse or violation when we read these inappropriate acronyms or see inappropriate language in hubs. Flag it so they will know there is an issue with the content.
I think acronyms are less offensive than seeing a specific word, while at the same time being kind of a cop-out. Say it straight out (knowing your audience) or find a better word.

Now don't get me wrong, I totally love writing on Hubpages and being a part of the Hubbing community, but I have lost a little heart recently when one hub of mine on "How to Improve Male Fertility" had the ads disabled based on automatic filters. This problem I reported in order to have...

I'm relatively new to this site.I know most sites of its type do their best to be "Google friendly" which translates into "family friendly" (a phrase I hate, by the way). Over the years when tempted to use profanity either in a title or in the body of an article (and I can...

I joined HubPages in 2011 but decided to leave 10 months in to re-start my own blog, and migrated all my content over to Wordpress. I was doing very well on HubPages, head got big, and I thought I could do better on my own. The reality is, I still could, but I think you get more with a platform...

Why are my Google AdSense earnings so low for this month?My Google AdSense earnings for this month so far are 5 cents. Is anyone else having this problem? Are they only paying for clicks and not page views?
