It depends.. In a formal or professional environment I may as well have the mouth of a saint, but in a casual environment I can swear like a sailor. I've actually been having moderate difficulty censoring my language now that my niece is starting to talk.

"But iriomote," you say in an obnoxious, whiny voice, "why do you never swear on the forums then?"
Well my perverse little simian friend, that's because I tend to write rather ****ing formally. What can I say? It's a habit.

I honestly don't care for people who swear. I feel as though they never learned another way to communicate, or at least don't have enough respect for others not to be swearing at/around them. I can understand it in specific circumstances (e.g. dropping something insanely heavy on a toe, etc.), but people who do it 9 out of every 10 words in a sentence annoy me.

I swear a lot. They're just words to me. Context carries the weight, not the term. That said, I don't get bothered by the vocabulary someone uses. It's not an indicator of their intellect and it isn't harming anyone. Fuck man, I even swear at work and no one bats an eye. My boss does too.

I'd rather have someone who has no filter than someone who wants to sugar coat their words or limit themselves.

I'd be a hypocrite if I criticized someone for swearing. After all, I've been known to drop the F-bomb every now and then (especially when I'm angry).

Honestly, I have no problem at all with iswearing and find it "honest" in itself. Power is only given to words if you let them be (as long as there is no hate behind the words that is). If someone swears at me, of course I'd get angry and most likely swear back, In a friendly or even romantic atmosphere swears can be kind of uplifting and fun sometimes though.King of a sense of familiarity bred among those you feel most comfortable around. It's also been scientifically proven that swearing lowers blood pressure, helps relieve pain, and helps to vent and relieve stress as well. Also, despite what the church tried to teach us as kids there is no actual sin related to cursing in itself only to taking the lords name in vain.

I'm not comfortable swearing. I do believe that it does have a time and place when it can work for some. It will irritate me if you're swearing every 3 or 4 words just for the sake of it. I don't have to stick around for that.

My mother had taught me that those who depend on swearing have a limited vocabulary. I had a shocking time meeting my best friend and hearing how creating she could be when swearing, lol, her vocabulary was definitely not limited.

Swearing is crude and serves little purpose save to demonstrate a lack of verbal deftness. Retorts can be both more cutting and less crude with sufficient command of the English language.

That said: there are times when you just have to cut loose. Like when I cut my fingertip off: usage of crude language was appropriate.

I personally don't do it, but I'm okay with the people that do. But it really annoys me when people will curse once in every sentence, even when it isn't fitting. As long as people dont do that, I'm okay with it.

The act of swearing I'm okay with.

When like 50% of the person's dialog is derogatory is when I get worried about his or her mental state.

Are you saying your command of polite language is the inferior of my command of foul language mate ? You want to admit defeat, then feel free to raise that white flag like the Frenchman I know you are.


What's the swear word shorter than "eh" that sends the same message?


Looks like you've been beaten.
