I think it makes people sound immature, especially when they swear constantly, it drives me insane.

My friend swore in such an interview when his phone rang and dropped.

Needless to say, **** was real that day.

I would say cursing is a way to express anger(as I use to curse alot), but it is not necessary.

i dont mind ether way but dont anyone say that everyone here is 13+ because probably 40% of the people here are under 13
i think the first / second comment is right cursing should be allowed now just saying 40% of the people here are under 13 because what immature person would have their parents let them make them an account and them knowing you had to 13+ not including the 2% that got away with doing that

I don't think swearing/cursing is necessary. It could be a way of expression but it doesn't mean you need to say those words when you're angry or anything.

For obvious reasons, I don't swear in kind of situations, but I remember a job interview when the interviewer started to curse. Not at me, but at somebody else on the phone. Needless to say, it was quite akward...

Well, it shouldn't be because languages have enough words to allow us to express things in many ways. Having said that, sometimes I find it hard not to curse, especially if my physical integrity is in danger due to other people's stupidity (not the word I have in mind, but I can't find the right word in English, sorry).
Example: I work in a lab. The other day somebody left a couple of test tubes filled with an acid in an inappropiate place and I almost burned myself. I could've been seriously injured! Obviously, I cursed and yelled at her for some time...

Swearing: used in moderation. not something to be used if its unnecessary.
