I don't know if this should be a question or not, but my last question got pulled becuase it apparently started a conversation. So I'll try here.
What amount or level of profanity is allowed in a hub page?
Are some words OK, but not others?
There is a point to this, rather than just typing a lot of swearing - I have an idea for a little hub thang.
I'd guess that "damn" and "hell" might be ok, but the rest of them are probably a no-no.
I have applied the characters
( * )hole or ( @ )wipe
a few times. "Hell" Seems perfectly acceptable to me, I think I got the "damn" point across
but than again, some people just can't play pictionary
Just a thought: HubPages works well for informational and educational articles. If you want to publish something that is opinion driven then you should consider starting your own blog.
And it won't matter how much profanity or obscenities you write. Unless you live in a country which prohibits such things.
Perhaps the question came across wrong. I don't want to start a free for all bad language kind of thing. I just genuinely wondered what the rules were so that I didn't step over them, and didn't waste time writing a hub in which the whole point is about obscenity checkers with a potential punchline of a single F word obscentiy.
Probably wasting my time. And yours.
Only the HP team knows for sure how much is too much. But if I were you, I'd prepare to get jiggy with a whole bunch of # @ and ! thingees.
It's recommended that you get clarification from the admin team before you publish anything if you wish to avoid having something unpublished or incurring a ban.
I discovered the solution to my problems - a shareware profanity checker. Now there's no possibility of a careless mistake.
