Certainly worth discussing.
There are rules on swearing, though I normally only act when there are complaints, but those complaints are not normally because bad language has happened, but because it was used abusively towards a member.
I am afraid if I said all swearing was banned completely I would burst into flames.... I try to use the
emoticon but sometimes it does not express sufficiently what I want to get across.
What do other members think?
Obviously if you use bad language all the time it loses its effect and you start to ignore it from that person, and anyone who uses bad language excessively will be told to tone it down or they will receive a time out where they can think about how they communicate... but the occasional swear word... as long as it is not used abusively to a person but is rather directed at what they have just said... then as far as I am concerned I prefer to just let it go.
Of course there are plenty of members who never swear... I respect their self control.
