I don't normally swear, but when I do, I am very angry. I also don't mind anyone swearing really, after all, my household is full of one kind of Chinese dialect that loves to include the word F-you in their dialect.

I'm alright with other people swearing around me, but I never swear myself. Idk, its just something that I was raised without.
I'm a silhouette, asking every now and then
Is it over yet? Will I ever feel again?
I'm a silhouette, chasing rainbows on my own
But the more I try to move on, the more I feel alone
So I watch the summer stars to lead me home.

I don't care about swearing. I swear all the time, especially when I'm really angry. I do think there are times to use them and times to not use them though, so we should be mindful of that. The only word I can't tolerate isn't even a swear word though, so lol.

I swear quite a lot in real life but not because I want to or like to, it's just habit haha. I think being around so many people at uni/college for so long has changed my vocabulary a lot :p I swear much less online though since you can easily go back through what you've typed and edit out anything that you're not happy with so there's a lot more control, but if I'm angry about something then expect a lot of swearing.

I'm more or less indifferent to swearing. I don't really care if someone uses it, but I try to limit how much I swear, because I know there's always this one person who's really sensitive to swearing.
All the cool kids had a signature :o

I swear all the time. I don't do it around adults and I've never used a swear word in this site but when I'm playing my vidoegames or I'm with friends I swear like a sailor.

It's definitely something I'd like to cut down.

I swear incessantly. It's a bad habit I gotta get out of. At least I'm not one of those people who swears for the sake of it though.

How do you feel about swear words?

My opinion of them are lolderp. I think they're just words and if people continue to give them such a stigma, they'll continue to be consider offensive. I hope in my lifetime, curse words become something of the past and are woven into society and seen as acceptable, because to me they're just the same as any other word in the English dictionary and don't see the big deal some people have when they're used in conversation.

What about you?
I like your way of thinking about it, but until society gains a brain that actually works, I'll try to cut down on my swearing xD

I tend to swear quite a lot. I don't mind if it's regularly used, but not by kids under the age of 13. Sounds horrible, and I hear it a lot outside after school.

Next project: Pokemon Dark Nebula?

When I'm with people I'm comfortable with I swear a lot, as in: "Why the **** am I even friends with you?" which could be taken a lot of ways, but is sometimes always meant to be joking. Words only have what power you let them have, the fact that swear words are culturally specific means they are in no way objectively bad.

They're just words.

I like to use them to spice up what I say, honestly, but I don't think they really matter that much. I'm not saying some six year old kid should go around screaming the f-word constantly, but I think curse words are good for exaggerating things and making your stories more exciting.
Are you sure you want to play this game?
I'm afraid you'd lose

People like to bleep them on TV and ignore violence that is probably much worse. That's America for you! As for me, I don't really care. They are only words right? I tend to swear all the time in real life but I do make an effort to "clean up" in places where everyone expects me not to curse like if there's a young kid in the room or if I'm posting on PC.

Very much the same here (even down to having only one (non-swear) word I can't tolerate!). I can have quite colourful language in conversation, though it is very much a thing shared in my area. I use "****ed" as a verb quite a lot (not in a ~mature~ way, as in "I'm so ****ed for this test!"), as well as various swears as an expression of shock / horror. However, I think there is absolutely a level where swear words are too common. My brother, for example, throws in "****ing" at least three times in every single sentence and it is so tiring. It's all so "haha look how macho and unclassy I can be!".
