    Well I'll be upfront I'm personally getting tired of editing peoples posts that have the "F" word or the "S" word. I maybe speaking for JT, Jazzbo and other Mods here but it gets really old looking thru reported posts with these colorful words and I'm sure they feel the same.

    If you dont know what this is you can ask the nearest thug looking gangster what it is. Ok scratch that idea!:)

    Dont use those words please even if you #*@ them out!! There are is less offensive slang that can be used.

    Thanx just trying to reduce some housework around here!!:D
  2. F = both adjective and adverb.

    "That dude runs F fast!"

    "That sounds like F"

    S = adjective

    "Your face looks like S"

    When I was a kid. If you said that word that started with 's'. You were MAD! Whoa!

    But if you said that word that starts with 'f', you were REALLY MAD!! OUTRAGED!!! "Yeeow!"

    And as a kid, if you were caught using that kind of language...LOOK OUT!

    Unfortunately it seems that formerly forbidden cuss words are too much a part of the daily lexicon of alot of standard conversational english.

    English itself (I'm hardly a linguist) seems to have an endless plethora of proper adjectives to express outrage, and disgust without resorting to the "nasty".

    Grammar is an art. And, I admire the ways that one can express themselves intelligently, piling on with platitudes, as well as developed analogies to sum up situations(Fuqua). Then again, simple phrases, being terse or curt, also have thier place.

    About 10 years ago, I made a concerted effort to eliminate profanity from my "user" list. It has been well worth it. I still get occasionally "freaked out" when I hear ostensibly well heeled, or established members of society use them with abandon.:eek:

    I plod onward.

    She's Fing beautifully.
    It's a very useful word :D

    IMHO, I don't understand what the problem is though. Who made the decision that people are allowed to say some words, and that others are considered to be bad or swearing? They're all just words aren't they?

    That said, I think people can find better words to express themselves rather than substituting whatever profanity comes to mind.

    Step one, instead of A, say "buns," like, "kiss my buns" or "you're a buns-hole."

    Step two, instead of S, say "poo," like, "bullpoo," poo-head," or "this poo is cold."

    Step three, with B, drop the 't,' 'cause 'bich' is Latin for 'generosity.'

    Step four, don't say F any more, 'cause F is the worst word that you can say, F is the worst word that you can say, so you shouldn't say F, F no!

    the f-word is the most utilitarian word in the language. to the best of my knowledge, it's the only word that can complete it's own sentence...

    f the f-ing f-ers! do that with any of your non-profane words, why don't you? :D

    I like the word "Buns-Hole"...he he.

    The F word means nothing to me. but it does offend people. so i wouldn't use it. same for the S word.

    But let me tell you something, if you make the person THINK your saying the F word, it does it's purpose anyways, you might as well have said the "F" word. Funny, these people will go buy edited cd's, and then a part comes up like "YOUR A STUPID MOTHER FU WIPPY WOW!"......I mean,,, come on,,, the thought of the f word clicked in your head right when that happened. Sad, IMHO.

    And by the way,,,,


    Thats what they mean anyway. What i don't get is, how did slang words for the sex act, and poop become more insulting than saying "YOU STUPID POOP!". I don't get it. why is "a**hole" more insulting than "Butthole"? It just doesnt make sense to me.

    Fuqua and Sadowsky !!!! ??? :confused:
  15. Blame Canada. :)

    (also from the Southpark movie...)

    But seriously folks, we also have kind of a responsability towards the younger tb'ers who's parents probably don't want them to learn these words.

    Fuqua and Sadowsky!!??

    Surely that's a bit harsh on Ed and Roger!! ;)
  17. Excactly, if the kids find out there are such things as Sadowskys around it will be very expensive for their parents. We also have a responsability towards the parents. :)

    I was wondering about this one, actually.

    What counts as profanity?

    As the S word does, I assume bull**** does too. But, I've seen a lot of people use this word uncensored - including moderators (mentioning no names... [cough]JT[/cough]).
