Memory tells me we're restricted from writing articles about certain "adult" subjects. Would talking about the Original Night Stalker, a serial killer and rapist from decades ago, be allowed if no graphic images were shown?
It's an interesting (albeit morbid) story of a criminal who was never caught.
I've been wondering this too (generally, as in articles about true crime), and where it would fit into a niche site. I think it would be a lucrative niche...
I've stumbled into this issue. I have an article about killers who kill again. I gets good traffic but, alas, the ads are disabled.

It's difficult to write about true crime without touching on violence.

If they don't want adult content in a page, then what do they think they are doing with these types of ads? I'm just wondering

I think there should be an adult version of Hubpages. It should be called Chubpages.
