    This question popped into my head after a dear, dear friend on here went back and edited his response from "fuck you" [in a nice way] to "f**k you."

    And I thought to myself, was that really necessarily? Is there anyone on here who gets all bent out of shape if he sees "fuck you" or "ass" instead of "f**k you" or "a**" ....or whatever?

    Is there an RJ rule against these words .... oh puleeze! ... icon_eek.gif

    To use an analogy.. maybe for the same reason someone puts their hand over their mouth when they cough or sneeze... Should they just do so without covering up..

    Maybe its just a way to be a little polite (for whats its worth)

    Shit. I think I've never censored my fucking words in this site ever. I mean fucking come on! We have a fucking adult forum where friggin sex is discussed, why the hell do we need to fucking bleep out swearwords? icon_razz.gif

    Heh. I'm not a fan of censoring swearwords anyway. It's not like there are fainting women around! Right?! Men are supposed to swear! *puffs chest out and points to Chapter 98, Section 3 of the Butch Gay Male Manual* icon_wink.gif

    I am not advocating using these words. But if you are going to use them, I just dont see any reason to do the little asterisk thingy, like we are all going to swoon if we see the real word.

    You read the word in your head anyway.

    When you see a$$ - you read ass, you don't read a-dollar sign-dollar sign... do you? icon_confused.gif

    i do. icon_neutral.gif jk. but yea, sometimes peppering a sentence with a couple swears makes it that much more tasteful. it adds a little more emotion into it. it's not that great when it's over-used, though.

    i swear to add humor to my words... i used to volunteer at a nursing home with my mom, and hearing a 90 year old man screaming out obscenities is one of the greatest things ever to witness. Of course I found out later he had tourrettes... who knew? *shrugs*

    Anyways, saying Fuck means the same thing as saying F**k, so why bother censoring it because everyone knows what you mean by it.

    It's just coarse, I don't like reading swear words.

    I went on a date with an New York guy last Christmas and he couldn't stop swearing. Everything was 'fuckin' this and 'fuckin' that. I didn't like it at all.

    I seriously don't fucking know what the fuck is going with those stupid ass ** everywhere. Though I know I hae used them to post a reply to "One" who talks a lot of shit, but doesn't have the balls to take any shit back without missing any points fucking being made. Damn it this shit is relieving a lot of stress. Why the hell I don't just type crap like this more often before? I don't fuckin know! But back in high school I used talk like this more often, and less of that other punk ass bitch bullshit I usually do. Fuck... luckily I don't kiss noone with this mouth lately.

    As an ex-New Yorker, I know what you mean. There is a type of New York guy who drops the f-bomb every six words or so. The f-bomb is useful only sparingly, to lend emphasis, to contrast with high-flown language, or to convey bewilderment. Its usefulness declines with frequency. You know what I'm fucking saying?

    Speak softly, but carry a fucking big stick.

    Edit: Versus a big fucking stick, which is an entirely different beast.

    After going through all that, I bet Our Savior probably knew some profanities that would curl your sideburns. He'd be all for 'em. icon_twisted.gif

    Yeah! A response, but having written that I actually feel quite bad. That's somebody's hope and religion. Haven't made a mistake like this since I started my own religion:

    Being a True Blue Aussie, irreverence is all apart of my culture. Why mince with our words. What would be: go fuck your mother, without fuck.

    Or go fuck yourself for that matter.
    Or wonna fuck....

    I've found a lot of Americans are like your Mormons. You give the illusion of being all nice and sweet on the outside; but in reality...........

    I am a curse word.
    See my four little letters?
    I jump from the tongue
    flinging spittle and spite.
    If you say me too much
    I might lose my bite.
    Yes I shock without awe.
    Yet I am not always bad.
    From anger and a fight
    it is a short walk to sex.

    This seems like a good occasion for profanity laced sci-fi.
