Acceptable swearing

#2 won’t let me swear on the blog.  *pout*.  I like to swear.  We are trying to agree on what is ok:

#1: dude.  I reserve the right to say f**k on the blog.  Because I hate America.

#2: veto
family blog
multiple demographics
#1:  oh come ON.  It’s incredibly LAME to put asterisks in.
and kids aren’t reading about personal finance and academia anyway.
#2:  you can complain about that on the blog
veto
#1:  DAMNIT.
#2:  that one is ok
#1:  Godf**kingdamnit?
#2:  veto
#2:  that one is funny
#2:  no
veto
prickthirsty is ok though
#2: that’s fine
#1:  hm.
along with percy
#1:  and john thomas.
hm.
#2:  willie
#1:  “Weaselporking HELL I’m tired!”?
#2:  that one is fine too
#1:  ok
I believe we can reach an agreement

    I vote for no swearing for a purely practical reason.

    If you put Fxxck, or Dxxck or any of that in your blog, I bet you’re more likely to attract porn spam. Just like using puke and vomit as verbs in some of my posts is attracting diarrhea spam. I don’t claim to understand the spam bots, but I wouldn’t take the risk.

    I think made up profanity could be an interesting use of your creative side.

    Good point!

    oh no, are we now doomed to diarrhea spam?

    Right now all our spam is very polite and full of praise… “Best blog ever!” “I can haz cheezeburger?”

    This could be one of ‘First Gen Americas’ creative writing assignments for all of us: a post with creative swearing without the swearing!
    Old romance novel have very creative ways of saying nasty things without coming out and saying the word, not that I read old steamy romance novels.
    Did you know that a study came out years ago on women and their sex lives. The common factor for women that had the most sex with their partners (I can’t remember how many times a week they had sex, this was YEARS ago) was that they read steamy romance novels before bed.

    Funny!

    Man, the Yakezie should come up with a creative April 1st assignment like that. It would be hilarious.

    I’m fine with swearing and do it quite a lot everywhere but on my blogs. I don’t want to offend people and swearing does lead to some people turning off what I am trying to say in their heads simply because they get hung up on one word. That said, every once in a while I will use a swear word to get a point across, lol.

    I think it would be hilarious if one of you cussed like a sailor and the other didn’t and apologized for it all the time…like a confused blogging tag team, hehehe.

    No! We are of one mind! (Except the mushrooms…)

  7. Everyday Tips Says:

    I have been known to curse in real life, but I don’t on my blog, even if I want to. I don’t know, I am afraid it will detract from the message maybe? Many times I want to swear, but I resist temptation and just say it out loud instead at home!

  8. nicoleandmaggie Says:

    I tend to save my swearing for occasions that deserve it. It tends to shock people.

    Swearing on blogges is completely outrageous and an insult to your readers. You should never ever swear on your blogge.
