I understand that hubs are supposed to be professional (not complaining) but would that preclude me from ever being able to say shit or even occasionally dropping an F-bomb without the earth splitting open and swallowing my hubs? One of the things I write is comedy, stand up comedy, I can censor it but it kind of kills it.
I don't think Hubpages needs to let filthy words as you are wanting to say or write about enter into a Good place to write topics.
Writing with cuss words would only drive many people away from Hubpages.
You can swear if it is artistic or at least entertaining in a quality piece, serving some purpose beyond showing that you have learned a new word that makes people's moms gasp. At least that's been my experience.
As long as your Hub follows the rules as laid out in the FAQ/Terms of Service and any rules regarding content as presented by Adsense, Amazon, eBay and others, you'll be fine.
Well, then you only have to consider your target audience. If your target audience is not put off by the occasional f-bomb or whatever else, then go for it!
Ah nothing like a reasonable person stating the obvious to help me deal with my out-of-comfort-zone panicking.
Why is there a K in panicking, paicing seems like it would have worked just fine?
There is a k in panicking, because panicing technically would be pronounced panissing, because (technically) a e or i after c creates a soft (ss) c. Is that rule always applied? No, because the English language hasn't been reformed to have enough applicable rules.
And yeah, think about what kind of people would read your hub, and whether or not they'd mind some coarse language. For example coarse language in a toy hub is a bad idea because parents may want to call their children to look at your writing in order to get their opinions, but then won't because they don't want them reading it.
But if it's something like a political hub, which are usually frequented by adults, then a little bit of coarse language shouldn't be a turn off for that many people.

Before the new layout, I was seeing traffic across all my Hubs, and since the change, I'm only seeing one single page get traffic.Are the traffic stats disrupted by the update?
