I have a friend who is considering to monetize his blog but something makes him hesitate to do so. Google AdSense said they will ban members that uses adult content. My friend's blog have no pornography,violence nor nudity but this is the problem, if you get to read his blog, you will want to put soap on his keyboard because he curses like a very drunk sailor on his blog. I think his audience follows him because he is foul mouthed And vulgar. He blogs about technology and pop culture but profanity is a prominent part of his vocabulary.

I want to know if Google AdSense will allow his blog for monetization?

I have no idea about Google Adsense and cursings in blogs. But I am really amused that some people use the internet - social media and blogs - to express their ideas or what's on their mind. A psychologist friend said that people can now use the internet as an outlet for their pent up emotion. I believe him because I usually see posts in Facebook about rants against and unnamed person. I find it silly that people would post something negative in the internet. What do they get for that? Practically nothing.

Cursing is not a negative thing on him though. He curses when he is happy or amazed. Let's say if he makes a blog about Susan Boyle's viral audition years ago, he will say he is amazed of her f-word talent and she is f-wording amazing and her talent makes all of her competition looks like S-word because she shows how talented she is. That's the description of what his blog like. He curses to emphasized positive things as well. He just feel uncomfortable without cursing. He felt more cool and awesome when he curses.
