    I recently have had some problems with a few of my hubs that the ads had been disabled on automatically. I queried this in order to try to get the adverts restored because the content was not obscene, but had it explained to me that although not obscene, they are considered unsuitable for adverts because they include references to reproduction organs etc. Having now accepted that this is an Adsense requirement, (albeit a little crazy if you ask me as the hubs were medical in content), I decided to follow the suggestion that if I wanted to remove the 'Ad's Disabled' symbol next to the hub in "My Account", I should manually set the adverts on each relevant to "none". I went to go and do this and this is what happened. When I tried to change ad settings to "none", I couldn't do so unless I unchecked the "commercial" box first which allowed the other ad options to be clicked on. Then when I saved the changes an automated warning popped up that said the hub may not be in compliance because it appeared to be commerical!! Very strange. I also tried to uncheck the box that stated the hub met adsense rules, as apparently these hubs don't, however when I did this a warning came up saying the hub could not be published if it didn't meet the Adsense terms and conditions. If the ads were set to none then why would this matter? This left me with no other choice than to re-check the box to say the hub did meet Adsense Terms and Conditions, after which the only warnings I got were the ones based on the hub appearing to be commercial. How else can I set the ads to 'none' without this being a problem?

      I have no idea what the answer is.  I'm just saying "hi."

    You have to remove any links that make the Hub commercial, then you can disable the ads.
