Demonetized Article Content Help

    I have a question regarding demonetized articles. I had 2 movie reviews about a certain kind of addiction. The movies are Shame and Don Jon. Because the articles contain the s-word it is demonetized. I'm ok with that, but now I'm writing a very long article, movie list with the 20 best addiction movies and I have those 2 movies in the list. I tried to not use certain words in the small summaries. In one I used the word intercourse and the other I used sentence parts like "objectify women".

    Because I put a lot of work in this list I don't want it demonetized. So I wonder if it is possible to include those 2 movies in the list or that it is better to just not add them, although they deserve their places?

    It's not that easy to talk about a serious topic like that and avoid certain words.

    I also wonder if using a word like s-ual once in a summary is enough to get it demonetized?

    Thanks in advance.

    It's a sad deal, and anyone who's been doing this for a while has ran into it. There are absolutely words that will take ads off your page. Words like 'rape,' you just can't use.

    Google considers Adsense something which should only be on pages which are 'family friendly,' whatever in the world that happens to mean.

    So the thing with drugs is pretty hard. I did have a page, for a long long time, about a conspiracy theory I dreamed up, and the 'methamphetamine epidemic.'

    Well, I never had problems with that page. You just can not in any kind of way be appearing to support the use of substances. My thing was a conspiracy angle, so it wasn't hard for me.

    I would imagine talking about the 'horrors' and whatnot of the abuse of diff substances ought to make it to where it is clear one is against using the substances. And all you really have to do is make it clear you are NOT FOR the use of illegal substances.

    I wish I could be more helpful.

    I agree, I did not have the same issue with movies about other kinds of addiction I reviewed. It was just Shame and Don Jon, I now understand that explicit wording can get you demonetized, but it's not always a clear line to walk I think.

    Thanks for your input.
