Has anyone had ads disabled by HP on a hub clearly not "sensitive?"


I just published another in a series of flash fiction stories, only to see the symbol for "Ads Disabled." When I checked the HP administration's information about why ads may be disabled (containing "sensitive" material that is not conducive to ads), I only became more perplexed. There is nothing in my story that in any way fits the criteria listed by HP as "sensitive." What gives? And how long will it take HP administration to respond to my request for WHY they did this to me?

    Thanks for your response. Fortunately, a human moderator reviewed the hub within two hours and enabled the ads. I wasn't told what the "sensitive" material was and still have no clue, but whatever it was obviously upset the Google "bot." Thanks.

    It was very frustrating, but short-lived, DzyMsLizzy. A "live" moderator reviewed it within two hours and re-enabled the ads, but I still don't know WHY the Google "bot" zapped my hub....Go figure....Jaye

    Thanks for sharing your experiences and also for reading Estelle's saga. I never considered the effect of a shorter word count. Perhaps....

    I hope your ads will be re-enabled soon (as the ads on my hub just were following a "moderator review"). My fiction hubs don;t get much traffic, and that's mostly other hubbers and family and friends I bully!

    BTW...This happened to me and they told me why. ONE phrase was sensitive.. I edited the specific phrase, sent them a note to that effect-.but the ads are STILL disabled after 3 weeks. I'm quite upset and know how you feel. It' my most read hub!!

    Thanks for your response. It's difficult to understand what words or phrases a non-human (computer) filter will chooses as "sensitive."
