Ok so I will admit I been gone awhile but I did notice somethings a bit different and so just got me to wondering:
When did **** and them kind a words become ok? and
I noticed some very vocal attacks such as "**** you" here and there, so what's up with that? So I can tell someone to stick it where the sun don't shine anymore?

@husker,
Please don't lower yourself to that level. It's really unbecoming, not to mention unoriginal.

@Mame,
Yeah well I won't but it does very prolific thing going on and the number of personal attacks I have seen numb me

@husker,
I know and I sympathize. That's what the Ignore User feature is really good for, husker.

Sometimes the F word does seem to be the most appropriate one available. I prefer, however, that members use their considerable above-average intelligence to be a bit more creative than that.

One of my college classmates heard that a guy was going around saying that she wore falsies and this was making her the butt of various jokes. She caught up with him in the crowded student union and proceded to bawl him out, verbally tear him up, shred him, and dissolve him into a mindless puddle on the floor. And she did it without using a single incomplete sentence or a single 'swear' word. She elevated herself in stature throughout the campus, and was treated with respect thereafter.

I was quite impressed.

@Foxfyre,
In the right case it could have shock value and in another case it could be just just an attention getter but in a way it's like crying wolf one to many times in the over use

@Foxfyre,
The moral of that story is
"never make the bitch with falsies, mad at you"
Is that the moral?




Use of profanity is like any spice, Its use must be metered in proper concentrations so that its presence enhances our verbal gustation. Ceej, on the other hand is just a fuckhead with a limited vocabulary.

that's always my thinking, too. Those that appear to be the most angry appear to have very limited ability to express themselves without resorting to swear words. They may well have limited ability to cope, period.

@margo,
I believe that swear words are like spices. A little, placed judiciously, adds something, and too much just spoils everything.

@husker,
Yup, politics seems to bring out the best in some folks here. Me, I avoid all this like the plague. Mad

The confrontational posts get boring real fast and collapsed by me.

I can only imagine what type a sentence a person could construct without having to dodge censors.

It is a very old English word,
related to mating; however, people particularly when angered,
refer to it in many illogical ways, replete with inconsistent non sequitur.

On some such occasions, I have inquired of the offender:
" what does that have to do with ******* ? "
I never got much of an answer.

I endeavor to be logical when I express myself.

@OmSigDAVID,
There was an old tale that **** was merely an acronym from an ENglish legal term."Free Unlawful Carnal Knowledge". An etymology dude that used to be on the boards had shown evidence that this belief was all wet. SO where does it come from. It isnt the Indian word "fugee" (similar to thugee. It wasnt the Comte de le Fuccquier, and it wsnt the English town (whose name escapes me)

@farmerman,
The word, which was in fairly widespread use, antedates
pervasive literacy and was not confined to lawyers.

It was (and remains) a verb.
To **** = to mate.
