It’s possible that many of you will have a massive coronary if this stuff gets to you that bad. Although, anyone using the word "hella" should be put down, permanently.


I agree, that word doesn`t even sound mildly cool or interesting when using,its just a complete joke and whoever made it up needs to be put down especially...Hella? C`mon now guys :-P :-P :-P :-P

You wouldn't be able to hold a conversation with me for 30 seconds. :-b Luckily, putting my thoughts in writing here gives me time to edit it out. I sometimes use it without even knowing it. :-D


Honestly, I think it makes people sound moronic and uneducated when the F-word is every other word out of somebody's mouth.
Vulgarity in general gets a big :-t from me.

Hey, my policy is listen to the message, not to how it's delivered. You can speak eloquently but still be dead wrong, or your vernacular could be peppered with vulgarities while you make a solid, intelligent point. I'd rather be the latter than the former. :-D

These people are in short supply and when you do find them, you shouldn't trust them...

I'd rather deal with the vulgar, straight forward type than the silver tounged devil.

See: Politicians

They have the power to convince people that they're smart by using fancy locution despite being horrendously wrong.

I'm not looking for a debate about politicians and their art of rhetoric.

All I'm saying is that excessive vulgarity is a pet peeve of mine. It's fine in small doses, I suppose.
Everyday at work, it's F-this and F-that. It gets annoying after a while. You can be straight forward without swearing, you know. B-)

Some people curse at a knee-jerk reaction and that's OK. As a habit, well that's annoying. I've had friends in college say the F word multiple times and it's quite sickening knowing that deep down inside and on the surface, they're just pansies trying to talk tough as if they were short on confidence and bravado.

I think it depends on place too. Personally, I don't swear often but at the pub watching the football (ahem, soccer) on the tube, you'd be a bit odd if you didn't call the ref a proper wank every now and then. You're having a beer, a heart-clogging English breakfast with like-minded individuals, why not let out a curse; it's guilt-free for 2 hours. My father is the same way. He never cursed unless the football was on, not during baseball, American football, basketball, or any other American sport. It had to do with the football. I was expected to follow suit. B-)

It depends on the situation, sometimes you need to cuss to establish what your trying to say. But yeah, a lot of people just cuss needlessly and it can be annoying.
