QFT: Roc's Rule #67

"Swearing is but a crutch upon which uneducated people lean to express themselves." Roc's Rule #67

One of my pet peeves, as well.

There's nothing wrong with a little profanity every now and then. Linguistic salt & pepper, if you will.

But if you are using various derivations of "F" as noun, verb, adverb, adjective and imperative, all in the same sentence, then get a thesaurus and have some alone time.

I've heard profanity described as something of an intelligence meter. The more you use, the less intelligent you are.

We all swear from time to time, I agree. Often from anger or frustation. You got the meaning dead on though. And Leumas, I like your addition to it.
