Perhaps it’s just me but I find it both jarring and disappointing when bees resort to the use of profanities in their posts. I know that lots of people use these words in their everyday language, but I cringe when I read them in posts on this site.
Do we really need to read ” rushed to buy that shit” or “WTF” in posts? I always think it reflects poorly on the user.
Let me know your opinion.

Doesn’t bother me. I hear worse on the trains.

@julies1949: I think its just about level of expression and emotionality. Sometimes I might use WTF or something along those lines but I defintely dont look down upon bees that might use profanities. I dont really care. I dont care in everyday life either though so maybe thats why.

I can definitely see where you are coming from. Language doesn’t upset me in certain contexts but I agree that it isn’t appropriate or necessary at all on the boards.

It doesn’t bother me unless it’s derogatory.

WTF is fine by me, when used in the correct circumstances. But I don’t appreciate the actual, spelled out profanities.

I feel your pain. I’m not one for profanity & was raised that a “lady” doesn’t use such language. I’ve come to learn that there are millions of women in the world, but very few ladies anymore.
I’d attribute some of it to the current state of society and the fact that profanity is used quite nonchalantly on television, in movies, songs, etc. I think many younger people are simply desensitized to it since they have grown up with it. I’m 40 and therefore old enough to remember when the worst word you heard on t.v. was “damn” and it was only used after 9:00— LOL!

It doesnt bother me at all.

It doesn’t really bother me. I think if every other word is a cuss word, I start to get annoyed and at that point, it starts to reflect negatively on the person saying it. But a cuss word here or there doesn’t bother me. The way I look at it is that there are so many things in life that are so much worse than foul language to even focus on it.
Anyway, when I see WTF, I think “What The Eff”– sometimes I even say it like that too. 🙂

WTF doesn’t bother me… but there is a certain word that starts with a c and ends with a t that is used to describe a not so nice woman that makes me want to jump through the screen and choke them.
I had a guy on my FB use that word today.. umm can you say instant delete?

In ‘real life’, I have a rather notorious potty mouth. However, I also know when to check my language and WeddingBee is one of those places for me. On occasion something will slip through without me really thinking too hard about what I’m saying, but overall I do try to be respectful. I paid attention to the audience here before I posted and that made a big difference.

I can see what you’re saying. I grew up in a household that did not tolerate any “foul language” and I still don’t use that type of language. My husband uses profanities sometimes as it bothers me. He’s agreed stop using those words when we have kids.
Personally, I think that it is a rather unimaginative way to express your thoughts.

@tootie, I was raised similarly (and am not quite your age but almost) and wasn’t even allowed to say the mild versions of “damn”, etc. I agree with you that the media of current society has a strong influence on what folks today are exposed to, and thus jaded by to the point that it doesn’t make them blink under any circumstances.

It doesn’t bother me in the slightest. It does bother me when people write S*** or F*ck. It took you just as much time to type that as it would the actual word and everyone knows what your saying so either use the word or don’t. Don’t be scared of a swear word.
