Seriously tho' thanks Pro' for editing me on occasion (one of which was beautifully written i must say) instead of just bootin' me. I'd welcome that anywhere else cos' im trouble, but... I like it here so I'll be nice :)
I posted a couple of nasty ones recently, then promptly deleted them. Phew!

Anarchy Woooh!

Rawr!

I do not like profanity, for you are just making yorself sound immature. My problem is that people think that freedom of speech equals permission to semi-literally swear their heads off. However, anarchy is not the same as freedom.

As for taking God's name in vain, I find such disrespectful to the God I worship. (Yes; I am Protestant.) In fact, such is my least favourite form of swearing. (I even get a bit angry for one taking God's name in vain.) If you ask me, though, we should not take Mohammed's or Buddha's names in vain, either, out of respect for the Muslims and Buddhists who may be reading this thread.

By the way, I support odd69-san's and deadly.by.design-san's posts in this thread.

..."Twilight"? I'd rather read "My Immortal."

Did you know that in England, Wales, Scotland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand there are that many people who state their religion as Jedi on the Census that it is officially recognised as a religion. In fact it is the forth largest religion in England and Wales.

The force is with you !!!!!

This is good

So we're all still agreed that swearing is bad? Good.

I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

It narks me when people post stuff on here like 'this xxx is just gay' - I look past it, but find it personally offensive as I enjoy the more adult talk that goes on. I'm no prude and don't bat an eye lid at the odd swear word - I did take house of the dead overkill back thought as it had a song in about fancying your mother - which went a bit too far for me.

@Zane, Chicken Brutus: while 'opiate' indeed makes more sense in English, Zane hit it on the nose.

Well I'll be. According to the intro to that article, I learned a misquoted version:

' It was translated from the German original, "Die Religion ... ist das Opium des Volkes" and is often referred to as "religion is the opiate of the masses." '

Learn sumpin' every day!

That game went a little far for me as well. I don't mind the odd bit of swearing, but it was a bit ott for me and the gross out stuff in the cut scenes...well, I played through once and that was really enough for me!

Media is the opiate of the masses, didn't you get the memo? It gets way more face time than "religion" ever gets in America these days. (I use the term loosely, since what I practice is often misconstrued as such) Plus, internet atheists are all the rage.

Also, swearing is still a verbal crutch, much like uhhhhm, like, or you know.
