Can we actually hold an actual discussion on this?
We have many posts about things such as word filters, fear of moderators (MonsE, Nem0, etc.), proper communcation (and coherent) in the NS Gen and I&S forums over the many years of even my incomplete observation of this board.
Yet I'm not sure we have ever
had a DISCUSSION as a community about cursing in general that wasn't part of vitrolic flaming or flamebait that wasn't fated to get nuked by the mods shortly there after.
So. How about it?
There are many possible lines of thought we could take... Who does it more in daily life? What are your thoughts about it? What situations make you curse more? What words do you usually use? etc. Just keep it civil, aye?
So as far as for me myself. I'm know how to hold my tounge in proper settings, but I am certainly capable of cursing like a sailor. I tend to keep most of it to myself and just think it in my head, you know? Most of my cursing is not AT a person, but rather a circumstance. Like, "Hey, where the **** is everybody on this board these days?" I try to keep it respectful in general but I'm aligned to agree with cursing as a vocal expression when an exclaimation point or the sarcasm just isn't potent enough alone. I find it's mostly contextual in determining what is socially acceptable and non-offensive when. But there there are the die-hard control freak types who say it's always inappropriate. Speaking of which reminds me of Monty Python's Analysis of the Word **** in the English language. Ever listened to that? I'd hope for a bunch of ######ing computer geek -- er intellectuals -- like myself you would have. If not you need to get some ######ing culture man! Yeah. Um. Well I'm clearly being a bit periphrastic her and likely to start being regarded as either drunk or insane if I keep going at this rate, of which I am neither for the record. So um, ######ing discuss already damn it!
No seriously, actually discuss this time. You don't have to even be grammatically correct here, just be ######ing honest.
PS: I have to admit this is good post this after a 12-hr work day before I go driving in my car. Thanks NS you made my day yet again. Woot.
