    I posted a hub in the media and humor section, it is harmless, and it talks about everyone going poop. It is meant to be funny and ironic, not a Doctors advice column.
    It has become unpublished and is waiting on me to change something, my problem is that it is humor, and not a medical advice hub.
    I also have another hub that is disabled, about passion. I am not sure exactly why? Too risque? I am actually being careful and editing out any profanity or bad stuff.
    All the things I share on here I have successfully shared on Facebook, and they are very fussy with censorship, so I don't understand? Are your rules here even stricter? Is that possible?

    Please let me know what to do, the 'everybody poops' one is harmless, it is based on a bumper sticker I once saw, because no matter if we are rich, poor, or whatever, we all poop. That is supposed to be funny.
    Some here already laughed at it, they told me...

    I don't want to be in violation here, I am a law abiding, straight laced guy. I am outspoken, but I try to play fair by the rules. If you have a problem with my 'passion' hub, that's one thing, although please let me know, as I still don't know what is the problem with that one...but come on...'everybody poops' is so's meant to be cute, funny, not dirty in anyway...if you want me to change it, okay, but how do I do that? I see no way to re categorize it unless I delete it and republish it...and where can I put it if it is not accepted as media and comedy?

    Respectfully, and thank you for help,

    Peter, it is not only hubpages T.O.S. that controls what words are a problem in writing something that is humorous but contains "naughty" words.
    I have a hub here which is a much loved poem written by Banjo Paterson called "The b*sta*d from the bush." I disabled adsense on the hub and it remains till today without any problem. It was flagged before I disabled the adsense.
    Adsense being a commercial part of Google have there own T.O.S, and hubpages kindly lets us know if we are in breach of that as well, so it is possible the problem originates with adsense.
    The staff at hubpages will give you guidance to get it up again. smile
    Welcome to hubpages if you are new. Hard to tell sometimes, as many here have several profiles. smile

    Thank you kindly earnesthub, I am new, and I do wish to adhere to the rules. I am all for fairness though, as many of my hubs are about just that, fairness.
    I am being very careful with what I am sharing, and hope I am not violating anything.

    Question, if I share my hubs on my facebook wall as it says I can, does that make my hubs worth less here?

    Thank you for you help, I appreciate it very much.
    Thank you for your comment and fan note too...;-)

    @Inspiremeon. I have a feeling that your hub may have been unpublished for other reasons... when you flag a hub ( since yesterday) if you had noticed, you have a new list of reasons for flagging............ watermarked pictures, poor quality, excessive ads, broken links or too many links pointing to an outside source.. I think you would have to check your hub from those angles and then ask for specific reasons from Team HP, they are quite helpful and a couple of my hubs were back in no time.
