I have a question that I hope someone from HP will answer. I have an article that has been up for about 5 years. It has been edited by HP Pro. Drives LOTS of traffic to Paired Life (as in one of your biggest articles). Who was the moderator who thought it was a good idea to turn off my advertising? The actual language reads: "Advertising has been disabled on this article based on moderator review"
Honestly, now - after 5 years? After HP went through the HP Pro process? After it has been snipped? To top it all off, nobody bothered to inform me of this by the way.
Sorry, it just really steams my clams that this kind of thing goes on. HP, you have a lot of good writers still here. I mean no offense when I say this but if you want to know why some of us haven't written on your verticals in awhile, this is a prime example.
I had one older than that, with over 20 thousand page views. Suddenly it was 'offensive' or whatnot.
The problem here is not going to be Hubpages Staff, but Google. Google is too large, too powerful, and so everyone must bow to them. I'm hoping this changes. Oh I like Google, and use it all the time - but it is a left wing extremist organization.
I hear you Weman but it HP also bears responsibility to advise the writer of what's up. Sorry to hear that happened to you by the way.
Hey, I wonder have you looked at your Adsense account lately? I'm wondering if Adsense left you a message about how your thing violated their rules.
That article of mine I referred to, when that thing was axed for advertising, Adsense left me a message about how my thing was terribly offensive to the liberal elite, or some crap like that. I guess the previous day, and all the previous years it wasn't offensive to the leftist totalitarian elite, then POOF, it was totally bad.
This sort of thing is why I have pigeonholed myself into only writing about musicians and musical instruments. I'm not saying I don't like what I've been doing for the past couple of years, I'm just saying I don't like the political way things are suddenly *cough cough choke* ahem....'offensive.'
Thanks. Yep, I looked at it. There was not an issue (no notices). To be fair, there is artificial intelligence now that scans images and text. Sometimes, an account will be flagged. That said, I still think if monetization is turned off a hub, the writer should be sent a message.
They did the same thing to me on one of my hubpages after 5 years and one right after I published it. What I didn’t understand was I don’t make any money from my hubpages but they do, so what? It’’s not hurting me, does it hurt them?
Of course later they discontinued the floating capsule which I loved and had used extensively in all my hubpages, which caused me to have to redo all the hubpages which would have taken forever so I fixed one and I unpublished all the rest. I should have learned my lesson when they talked me into posting some of my pages on niche sites only to find after I did they censored parts of them without notifying me. Learned my lesson now though, I’m not writing any articles again here.
Thanks for sharing. It's a shame some of us are not writing as much as we used to - for some of the reasons shared here. Here again, all that is required is a simple email to advise what changes have been made to a hub.
Content, particularly high quality content, is gold in the writing universe. While I admire HP for providing a platform for folks to publish material, it has to be respectful. This means informing writers when a change has been made to a hub.
Unfortunately, ads were disabled on your article because we received a notice from AdSense your article is not in compliance with their terms of service. If you have any questions please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I just took a quick look at your profile. One article in particular struck me as being a possible reason for disabling articles because the title deals with telling people how to physically attack other people. Don't know if that's the one you're talking about, but do remember that we all signed agreements with Amazon promising to keep our articles kid friendly...meaning don't discuss topics that are not suitable for them to read. Maybe this is your problem and is why he team was notified about it.
I had ads disabled, a long time ago, on an article about dating cougars. Didn't see the logic in it myself, but there is a lot of sensitivity regarding content. Understandably, Hubpages are not going to take any risks with their income stream.
I believe I found the article you are referring to and don't see anything wrong with it. However, you may find it useful to check this Adsense page out:

Can we please stop with the liberal elite stuff. I probably am one of the liberal elite and I have had Google sandbox my blog for being offensive. I could speculate about why but I doubt the "liberal elite" are the ones they were protecting from my discussion of gay romance novels. Working out how to not get advertising removed is a technical issue not a chance to bang on about politics. There is the whole dark half of the forum for that stuff.
"dark half of the forum"
An excellent phrase, not kidding.
The Internet/Google is always changing and evolving. What used to be hip or where people really dug something is not always the case down the road. All I can say is get used to it. HP is an excellent platform for writers to write. You just gotta go with the changing flows.
I just re-read the article and there is reference to drug use in there that may be causing the problem. The page I referenced earlier makes reference to recreational drugs, so you may wish to remove this element.

I just came across this one, KaKun dot ru, complete with Adsense ads. Has anyone else seen this?
