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.

Is my hub's quality bad based on one swear word?I have had a hub unfeatured due to engagement but never quality. Now I publish a hub with one cuss word in it and it's poor quality by HP standards. It has all the required number of words, pictures, and I even put a poll in it even though I felt it...

Should kids be allowed to say "freakin" or other 'nicer' versions of swear words?Or should kids not be allowed to say anything even resembling a swear word. On the other hand, would you say it's alright to let kids use actual swear words?
