I mentioned in an earlier comment that swearing on the blog was fine by me. However, I’m throwing it open to the floor – are we all grown up enough to have a few swear words or does anyone actually get offended? Comments please!
No need to apologise, matey; I posted this as I’m curious as to what people think. Those who have met me in person know that I have a potty-mouth , so swearing clearly doesn’t bother me; but if the majority of readers hate it then I’ll discourage it. No more, no less!
To be honest, after sixteen years as an LGV driver I could’ve made a sailor blush, but old age must have mellowed me as I rarely swear now. Your last post seems eminently sensible to me, but then, you’re an eminently sensible fellow!
I grew up in the East end of Glasgow, so swearing is absolutely fine by me! I do appreciate, though, that not everyone feels the same. My general opinion of swearing on the blog is that it’s not really an issue, and I think we’re all mature enough that if someone is offended, then they would speak up.
Now that I’ve said we’re all mature I feel a sudden urge to stick out my tongue or start a food fight or something…
I’m a Yorkshire lass, I call a spade a fucking spade, and don’t get offended by anyone else doing the same.
I only get irritated by people who think they look ‘cool’ (sorry, @ckoei) by swearing for the sake of it. It’s not cool, it’s pathetic.
I don’t mind a well-placed obscenity, provided it adds value. Many people just throw in expletives at random, making them merely distractions that don’t move the conversation forward at all. A good curse is an art form.
