Exactly! There is no difference between saying, "Back the F*** off!" and "Back the Fryin' Pan Off!"

They're both words that don't belong in that sentance and henceforth both make the speech quite useless, heh.

I'm not offended by any swearing that is put in the forum. You get used to it when you live in my house.

Swearing is so ******* stupid, only an ******* would want to do it. I ******* hate that ****.

Seriously, I don't have a problem with swearing. I'll wholeheartedly admit I do it sometimes, especially when something in a video game isn't going my way. Sometimes I will do it in conversation to show a certain gutteral emphasis, but I often find that other adjectives work just as well.

Swearing when not aimed directly at me doesn't offend me in the slightest. If anything it ammuses me.

Yeah, but it just feels different, you gotta admit.
And do you mean the PMRC? The organization so lame that John Denver kicked it's ass?

I agree.

For instance, when you're watching a movie on TNN or Fox or another channel that edits content, and Harvey Keitel calls someone a 'Fuzzy Sock Sucker' it just doesn't have the same impact.

It may well convey the same basic meeting (i.e. Mr. Keitel does not care much for the character he is referring too) it doesn't have the same power that it could.

Nothing was worse that Mallrats on ABC. Suddenly, Jay's line: "All it took was a fat chronic blunt," turned into "All it took was a fast karate punch." Okay, so it's not a swear, but you get my point.

a swear word is exactly what it says on the packet, only a WORD
I don't see how people can take offence to a word like f*** and not something like cheese. They're both words after all.

I never take offence when someone swears at me, rather I laugh at their stupidity, to have to resort to those types of words. :lol:
Words like fornication means the same as f***, but isn't considered as taboo, I mean what gives :?:
