Can you use curse words in your article if it is a direct quote?
I really want to use it in my article title because it's an eye grabber that really sums up the message of the article really well. But I'm afraid HubPages will remove it.
Considering that there is currently a hub published that contains very strong language (though it's in the body of the copy, not the title), it may depend on how the HP software and administration view the use and context. All they can do it remove it, after which you can revise the title and republish.
Most of Hubpages' regulation controls are non-human. So, whether you've put the curse word in quotes or not, the program will likely flag it and it will reflect on your hub negatively. You might be able to make a case for keeping it on HubPages, but search engines won't touch it for the same reasons.
