|To avoid such things, what kind of "adult/mature" words should I filter in the forum software? |
The same ones you wouldn't use on WebmasterWorld. :)

My sites are user generated and I'm getting more of this from google :(
Sites that are 99.9% family oriented, but with an adult joke somewhere from 18 months back, and it gets a complaint.
I am dealing with these issues as they arise, but I think google may have a screw loose on some new scanning tech here. It threatens to render perfectly decent user generated content sites unworkable.

You can use, in lots of forum software, a bad word replacer. If somone says "shucks" for example, you can make it say **** or create a replacement word like "shoot" .

Never the most reliable of methods... cockpit, rape seed oil, let alone legit use of naughty words.

depends on culture ..here in these fora .."female dog" is a bad word ( even when used in canine context ) and wont get past ..although in the last year or so the presence of some words shows the relaxation to a more mid-atlantic balance ..some words are never going to be allowed ..
and yet there is a member with a nick that makes us francophones think stupid **** ( which is actually what the nick means ) ..gave me a double take first time I saw it ..:)..in France it would have been modded out instantly .
my best guide to allowed words for USA has been think of what G dubbaya and L would never use in public ...if they knew the microphone was on ;-)
Overhearing either hitting their thumbs with a hammer would however demonstrate that they knew them all the time ..;-)
I always like Ronnie R's way with simili's ..cute and could be used in front of small kids .

automation does not always work well.
spamassassin adds +2 points for the word "analytics" based on the first four letters. for a specific confirmation email I send out, this takes the email from 0.5 to 2.5 on the spam rating.
this is done in the name of efficiency since the program is none too speedy to begin with. they are not bothering to check if the stemming is contradicted by a full word that does not have a p. meaning.

Honestly, I think Google should consider the percentage of adult words versus the total content of the forum and they will find it is VERY LOW rate.
They should consider the whole picture, not just one page from the past.
Well, I got 3 days to cleanup my forums *sigh*

If they don't start working on percentages then things are going to go badly awry. I wouldn't mind betting I have more technically violating pages than most people have compliant pages!
I also think I run a very clean operation. An off colour joke in a forum cannot sensibly be regarded as a problem.

I've just been through the same process...but got my domain suspended!
I have been running a site for along time (3-5 years) and had an email telling me which page contained the "adult" content -
I Immediately removed it (well withing a few hours) - but they didnt re-enstate me, this happened again recently on another site, and again they have stopped serving ads to my site, I have emailed them a few times explaining that I have now put a filter in place to stop adsense being displayed on suspected Adult pages, but still the sites are not being served...
Not sure how to get the sites back!

Do they complain about adult words being used on pages with adsense on them or any pages from a site even if that particular "user generated" page has no ads?

I got warning email day before yesterday, saying that adserving stopped and account remains active. Form year 2003 iam using adsense, but now they stopped serving ads due to 2 to 3 adults links submitted by the users. I removed the links and informed google but iam not received any response. please let me know can i use the same codings for my another websites?
