Yes, but I think its a lot more noticeable when you get older. I dont beleive its is something new in the american culture. When i'm with friends I tend to swear often. However when i'm around the general public I keep it casual.

Yes

I notice because I myself don't curse, but I see how naturally others use the language. For me, even saying a curse word to myself feels somewhat unnatural, and I have never once cursed while in another person's presence.

It is becoming like a normal part of the language, though. I don't even think they're really curse words anymore, its more like "polite vs casual conversation" now. Which isn't that big of a deal, but sometimes it makes people think of me as a bit of a stiff for not doing so.

I don't notice all that much cursing. Usually it's me that does it. I heard from a programming teacher: if you program for a living, you're going to cuss and drink. Well, since I don't drink, I do enough cursing to make up for it.

Yes, definitely.
Even in movies as well.
I have to say, that lately, even I have been cursing a lot more than when I was younger.
It's a habit I will have to fucking stop.....eventually.

If you live in the United States, it will always be there.
You can chose your own lifestyle.

I didn't like saying some words when younger but when I got older, I understood why, life hits hard.
Not that swearing is negative but it can be a form of amusement for fun.

Yes, I do think that people cuss too much.

I will swear as well, but I will not throw around the slang terms without reason. For example; I would not refer to the toaster as "the f**king toaster". This is because there is no need to say "the f**king toaster" when you can just simply call it "the toaster".

Now then. When I drop said toaster on my my pinky toe, "the toaster" becomes "the f**king toaster" as a result from my excruciating pain and or anger. If people are going to swear, they should at least have a decent reason to do so.

Well personally I only tend swear a lot when I feel comfortable with the people around me. Don't usually swear around strangers cause some people can get really offended.

I don't think people curse a lot. Personally, there's not enough of this kind of shit going on! I say bring the foulest of nasty words to all levels of social hierarchy until our vocabulary ends up a typhoon of fucks, goddamns, shitstick picklefart, fuckity fuck cunt teabag fuck fuck fuck!

I think they are over used the same way any other word has been. It's slightly annoying sometimes but not inherently bad. At this point I'm so desensitized, and most people are, that it's not the words that bother me, just the fact that people don't bother to try and use more of a variety.

Cursing is naturally for us, simplicity in effect. We have however overused it and now everyone says it.
They even use it when there's no need for it. People have become lazy and not articulative, or able to break the cycle of repeating words.

I swear only when i'm truly angry or shocked. There's no reason for constant usage.

In short, people need to use them less, or we'll end up using them as day to day verbs/nouns and new horrible additions will be added to the dictionary.

I think we need a CR curse jar. That way, every time someone curses, there is a penny fee billed to the next invoice. Then each month a moderator randomly selects a winner and they get a free month subscription! That may deter some of those foul mouths that should be washed out with dish soap! Or we could just go with the flow and say FUCK IT!
