Well, to toss my two cents into the pot: Swearing should be left at the door, as far as these forums are concerned. When speaking, we have a tendency to say things rapidly. Our words slip out quickly, and we don't always have time to think before we speak. So, naturally, the quality of communication is significantly degraded when speaking aloud. We can't go back and change things. The entire concept of forums means that you have the opportunity to read, review, think about, and edit what you will post. You can sculpt your post, rearrange what you've written, consult a thesaurus, whatever you like. And you can think about how it will affect others. Because, unlike our mouths, the "Post" button is a bit easier to control. I don't see why any swearing, other than 'damn', 'hell', and 'ass', and other minor profanity, is needed to communicate your feelings, when you can demonstrate your intelligence level every time you click "Post". Cheers.
