    Some of the most eloquent people I know use utterly filthy language to devastating effect. But I hate to see course language in print - I had to stop reading one of Stephen Fry's books because it made my hair curl in an unattractive manner, although I love his irreverence on QI, for example. That's a weird double standard I don't really understand.

    I only swear in the company of people I know will be offended -like my mum - it's too irresistible to see the look on her face

    I swear sometimes. I don't see an issue with it.

    Err she un-subscribes...

    Shame the filter has flaws. It's a valuable tool.

    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.
    My boss refuses to write in anything other than capitals. He wonders why you can set the numlock to start with the pc but not the capslock!

    He even writes letters to customers entirely in capitals!!

That sort of behavior just seems a bit immature, to me.
    Precisely. Well used it is a sign of decent mastery of a language. Poorly used it is a sign of poor mastery. All I'm saying is that use itself is indicative of neither.

    Oh not entirely true. Ask any broad scouser to say "f'in Thatcher" (obviously the full word, not the abbreviation). They spit it out like it's the worst insult ever.

    a scouser doesn't have to swear, to sound like they're swearing, much like a weegie - must be the Irish ancestry, they did invent swearing, after all.

    The accents are what makes it sound proper though. Somehow it matches perfectly. It's much more pleasing to the ear than some whiny Londoner trying to trash mouth with the northerners.
