    Swearing offensive? Try using a word like "volubly" or "surfeit" in conversation and see the looks on their faces.

    Exactly. To some you just slapped them in the face with a cold wet haddock.. it's all context.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I swear myself.. *shrugs* I'm not disturbed by swearing. On the other hand, there are times when I can get aggravated by it under 'special circumstances'.

    For myself, I'm more concerned with if the message has "substance" to it vs. if swearing was used to deliver the information itself. One of my INTP friends swear every other second to the point where some people do get offended (that actually makes his day), but "I" find him to be a very 'expressive' and intelligent being. I suppose, it's a matter of preference just as well as 'when and where' one decides to swear.

    I love opinion threads....got tons of 'em!

    I think there is a time and place for everything. Sex is a good place. In everyday situations I don't mind an occasional sprinkle here and there. Any more then that it's like reading someone who posts in caps all the time...just plain annoying.

    But I had a question!

    What happens when you come across a swear word(s) unexpectedly?

    I think the most annoying thing is when people think that they're some big, special rebel because they say the f-word a lot, and they consider it a huge victory for having offended someone. I don't understand that. I understand people feeling like they're expressing themselves, but I don't understand why they get a charge out of imposing their choice on people who don't care for swearing. That sort of behavior just seems a bit immature, to me.
