View Full Version : Reminder: Swearing is not allowed
April 28th, 2008, 02:15 PM
This forum is meant to be alright for all martial artists, and it would be a shame if children weren't allowed by their parents to join the forum because we were swearing.
Also, please don't do the "first letter, asterisk, asterisk, last letter" thing. It's the same deal. Feel free to just do $&@#*($ if you're trying to get across generic grumbling, but otherwise, please just use non-swear alternatives.
This is in the forum rules in the "Guide to the Forum" section. If you have not read this, please do so.

i see your point about the little kid thing. i think we will all have to make a better effort to watch what we say. i will also start editing posts to comply with these standards.

I have always felt that swearing show's just a little lack of self discipline....
....of which I'm as guilty of as much as the next man/woman.

we should just start a Red Dwarf or Battlestar Galatica policy and just make up and use fictious swears.
unless someone would be offended if i call them a fracking smeghead ;)
there has got to be some good MA insults that we could throw in. something like "arm flapper"........
.......... oh wait, am i taking this in the wrong direction :p

Why can't the English learn to speak?
I think the same applies everywhere, and even, to a point, applies in smaller groups. Some countries don't consider particular words to be swears, others do.
Of course, some crazy countries think Benedict Arnold, the backstabbing jerkwad, is a hero... ;) (and the battle lines have been drawn :D)

This thread is pony!
Got right on me thru'pennies it has!
What does the following mean?
Walking down the frog on me way to the battle all smart in me new whistle. Me plates were killing me and all I wanted to do was sit at the Joanna and take a butchers at the totty. As I come down the apples, who do I see? Only the bread knife with me mutton skin 'n' blister. I pull me kettle out me sky rocket and realise I need to cover me barnett with a syrup if I'm to get past them incognito. They recognise me boat straight away though and delivered a blow to me Davinas.
Can we claim round 1?

You can, thanks to the English language being very very versatile, say most things in numerous ways. But that misses the point. One word or group of words sums up succinctly what you feel. It allows fine nuances of meaning and swear words follow suit - feelings are complex. Swear words fit perfectly into those shades of meaning. Choosing the right swear word is an art. I ask you, what is a swear word? It is odd that for some implied swearing is okay but direct is not.
