The warning says your hub appears to be about tobacco. We are not allowed to write about tobacco? Its a review about the electronic cigarettes.. Is that allowed on Hubpages? I seen other people write reviews on them. Why can't I?
Remember, Google forbids any content that promotes tobacco products (which includes electronic cigarettes). The filters don't know if you are trying to sell those items or otherwise encourage use, or if you are writing something cautionary, so they are warning you. It's up to you to heed that warning or not as you make you Hub.
I had written one (without thinking) about possible health hazards of electronic cigarettes. It was doing well. It was clear I wasn't selling them. Still, it occurred to me that someone might construe that I was either implying that electronic cigarettes could be safe enough for people to use, or else implying that they shouldn't use them (and maybe also implying that not trying to quit smoking real cigarettes by using electronic ones might be wise). Basically, I just wasn't sure who might think I was implying what. (Since I tried to keep it objective and without any sides, I figured that meant people might interpret things their own way, which is what people tend to do anyway ) - so I just figured I'd dump the Hub because I didn't want to take any chances with my Ad Sense account. Personally, I just stay away from anything that's at all a "questionable" subject when I know Ad Sense is a factor.
Saying e.cigarettes are good suggests promoting them. Saying they're bad (when there's not evidence/proof to back that up) could potentially open someone up to a lawsuit (or at least some trouble). Remaining neutral can leave room for that misinterpretation. I just see that subject as "lose, lose, lose" (or at least at high risk of "lose"). It's too bad, too, because that was a far better Hub than a lot of the others I have on here. Maybe getting rid of it wasn't even necessary, but I just didn't want to take any chances.

It is about Honeyrose cigarettes so technically it is not about selling tobacco..but because it says tobacco related products including e-cigarettes I will un-publish it and rethink it. Any thoughts?

Are there any downsides to using electronic cigarettes to quit smoking?I've tried everything else. Now I plan on purchasing an E-cig (though not that brand) to help me quit. Are there any downsides to using these? Are they any worse for me than the cigarettes I'm already smoking?
