So I obviously understand and words like f*ck/sh*t are counted as cursing, but what about pg13 words like a**/hell/crap etc..?

American's seem to think these are curse words but they're very tame in my country so they're part of my everyday vocabulary. Do I need to start bleeping them?
How does cursing affect a channel's chances of becoming monetizable?

I moved this to the video monetization discussion forum. :)

you can use your vocabulary when youtube allowed you monotize, but in the first time, you should not..

Creator insider channel has a video on this topic. Probably the best source for information on the topic

I found it amusing that the Creator Insider vid really stressed that the beginning of the vid is the most important to keep 'clean'. In real life I swear like an old sailor, or an old cook... I am both ha ha. I try not to cuss too much in my vids, but lately I have been trying to be myself more, and it does come out pretty *#% regularly. Usually in the 2nd half of the vid, and so far nothing has been demonetized because of it.

Youtube should really be somewhat specific on what rules you break.. like if you got in trouble/demoentize for profanity or language. They need to put in time stamps and the word. Obviously, if someone manually reviews the video, then they should know what is the issue.
