I'm just kinda for people doing what they want. I don't like to hold views that look down on other people. So even for say  I didn't swear, it wouldn't other me.

I think swearing is unnecessary. I think that swearing can be replaced by other words that mean something els. I also think that swear words are different to certain people. like one of my friends cusses but says that the F word is the worst of them all and will never say it.

Curses are words that hold a meaning, the same as every other word. Like every other word, they shouldn't be overused or relied upon. Excessive swearing is just as annoying as people who stammer "uh" or say "like" three hundred times when telling a story.

The only difference is that we have attached negative social connotations to these words and when used in context of their dictionary definition, are some of the most extreme ways of saying something.

They have their purpose, but, are probably overused by the majority of the population to the extent that they aren't as radical as they used to be. In time they'll probably become common place words and we'll get new words to replace the high-end insults.

I am saying more expressive (adding humor to it...expressing frustration..etc)

Very true. I do the same, mostly for humor. Ill drop the F-Bomb whenever the **** I feel.
I really dont like to insult people with them. Like, I dont go all out, "BEEP BEEEP BEEEEP BEEP" on guys. I prefer more original insults like, "your birth certificate is an apology letter from the condom factory" and things along those lines. I sometimes call people, "monkey ****er". Not really sure how that started.
So yeah, its not that big of a deal.

(I am guilty of that) Cuss words don't hold meaning. It's like a force of habit. It's just the words I use. If you knew me I am a definite cusser.

True, true. Have you worked on Comebacks though. Like if someone asks you a stupid question you should try "Cause I'm cool like that."

You wouldn't hear me replace words with "Frack" or "Darn" but besides swearing I also say "Crap" and "Geeze". "I don't usually call people ****ers I call them Retards.

No, they definitely have a meaning.....

Most of the time, comebacks are a bad choice. People can't catch them, it's not fast enough, seems too nerdy, too detached, no emotion. Scratch that, cursing is still better at getting your point across.

@ss - Butt or donkey. Not really so bad now is it?

***** - Female dog. Once upon a time..calling a person a dog was a huge insult...similar to calling someone today a douc4e

D@mn - Probably the only true "curse" word...when using curse in the term of cursing someone like a witch would. Example of how it is properly used: "I d@mn you to hell"

F-bomb - Don't even try to say it stands for something with a king and all that crap. It come from the German word Fick...which means the sexual act we all use the f-bomb for.

Hell - Ok..come on..it is a "place"

**** - Poop..crap..excrement

Piss - Well..this ones negative connotation seems to have died. Did you know this used to be a "curse word"?

Cun7 - Woman's genitalia. Two different definitions for its insulting use..."an unpleasant or stupid person" (well hey..that isn't so bad!) or a "usually disparaging and obscene: woman" (well well well..look at that..that isn't so "unintelligent"...just simplified)

**** - Male genitalia. This one is actually meant to be vulgar

I don't usually call people ****ers I call them Retards.

I wouldn't call some a retard...however if I'm really ticked off I will call them retarded. Why? With the word retard...the association is directly and instantaneously shot to a "special" person..when I call someone retarded I am using the definition of one who has been delayed/slowed

I don't curse, they may be expressive but I still don't approve. The closest thing to a cuss word that I say is crap. Nuff said.
