I was thinking about creating a hub featuring my favorite youtube videos, but several of them are full of inappropriate words. Way inappropriate. Most of the cursing is humerous, hysterical, if you ask me.Now, would posting something like that disable Google ads, or be frowned upon by the powers that be? I don't want to be a trouble maker, or introduce something that is taboo on HP.
Well, I have heard all the curse words there are, but in my opinion if I were you I would steer away from the inappropriate You Tube vids. I think there may be some younger people that also use Hubpages and maybe you would be banned or something, Not sure about that. Just my opinion though.
I understand your frustration Delores. I wanted to use a video featuring Jamie Oliver's efforts to make school lunches more healthy. I wanted to post it to the HubMob roundup hub. I viewed 2 videos, each of which dropped the F-bomb. While I like the F-word and its many variations, I would never knowingly post a video to a hub that included such language.
One of the ones that I am thinking of involves Bert and Ernie with an over dubbing from the movie 'Casino.' It's hilarious but they do drop the F bomb a lot.
I won't put that kind of thing. I just don't want to take chances.
I actually ran into a situation recently that didn't involve cursing, but smoking. I wanted to put a Sammy Davis, Jr. video on because I thought one particular song was perfect on the Hub. Good Lord! That man is smoking (and quite "flamboyantly", as anyone who ever saw him probably knows) in pretty much every photo, video, and album cover he's in!
I thought about not including him at all, but I found one that's kind of shadowy, in which the fact that he (as always) has a cigarette in his hand is actually kind of subtle. Only he could do some of his songs the way he did, and I thought it was also nice to kind of feature this "retro" but legendary performer. It's just that I wanted him to be the star of it - not smoking!
Why dont you write about them and post links to youtube at the end of the hub? YOu could put the favourable videos in the main text of your hub, whilst the not so favourable linked at the bottom. Just a suggestion.

Do you approve all comments on your hubs, even if every third word is a swear word? I'm just wondering if it's normal to do so or if it's normal to just delete it.

Is there a balance of Amazon products on a page that makes a hub overly promotional? Or is it dependent on the individual hub (over and beyond the 50 words per product)?

I would love to see an area for text or at least a caption added to the video capsules. In almost all the videos I've posted in my hubs, I've wanted to explain a little bit of this or that about what the reader is seeing. Right now my only option to do that is in giant bold type in the header, or...

I wrote a Hub earlier, for a different account, and when I was editing a text capsule, the tutorial video at the bottom right was overlapping into the text capsule, making it a little difficult to scroll. This was earlier this morning and my computer is old, so don't know if things have changed or...
