    What is HP's policy on swear words that is part of a news story?

    "Oculus founder Palmer Luckey posted a statement on his Facebook page late Friday night admitting to donating $10,000 to pro-Trump “shitposting” organization Nimble America,"

    Do I have to post S**tposting? instead which seems stupid since it's part of news story from the Daily Beast

    I'm not sure what the official stance is on swear words but providing that the language you're using is part of the story and isn't particularly offensive or inflammatory I don't think you'll have a problem. I swear quite often in my hubs without censoring myself and haven't had any issues.

    There is certain content that hubpages often disables ads for (graphic or extremely controversial subjects) but that's only a problem if you're talking about something like, say, circumcision, female genital mutilation, rape, terrorism and other very delicate subjects. You can still talk about such things but you won't get any ad revenue.

    Long story short you shouldn't have any issue saying the word shitposting.

    I rarely swear in my hubs but when I do, just to be on the safe side I always replace one or two letters with an asterisk.
