That last comment was out of line, IMO.


Ok I agree, and for that I apologose to Lexi.

However I don't see the need to allow foul language here.

Ask the poster if he would be prepared to use it in a face to face converation...........Probably not, but no doubt it would say it would.

Face to face conversation...........that's what it is all about.
Don't say here what you wouldn't be prepared to say to someones face
unless you think you are big enough to stop your face getting filled in.

That's it.

I accept your apology.

And the suggestion is noted - although in my experience, there are many areas of the country - such as London, where swearing is considered a normal part of conversation, almost part of the dialect. But I have also lived in areas where it's considered abhorrent, and the idea of a female swearing a complete disgrace.

It's a lovely little things called Freedom of Speech. Plus, as pointed out elsewhere - different people find different things offensive. Language, devoid of context, is never inherently offensive. Even something which gets a knee-jerk reaction like "nigger" is not, in itself, an offensive formulation of syllables. It's offensive when it's used by racists because it's loaded with derogatory intent and implications of inferiority because of skin colour. If a baby or a small child just strung the letters together though, we wouldn't gasp and take offence.

If someone calls me a "cunt", 90% of the time I'll consider it offensive. 10% of the time I'll appreciate that it's no different to a comradely usage of "bugger", "git", or "bastard". It's the intent which lies behind it - language is just a vehicle by which we convey meaning and intention.

We're all adults here (as far as I am aware at least?), and I'm sure we're all big enough and ugly enough to weather a few "offensive" words  :wink:

If they're directed at other posters in an abusive manner, however, it's a whole different ballgame.

One of our senior senior managers has changed the acronym for Objectives from SMART (specific, measurable etc...) to SMART ARSE.  
It goes down really well in teaching sessions.

Though one is a pregnant fish

That's a joke / myth there is no usage of 'twat' which has anything to do with fish.  For a start, fish don't get pregnant, they lay eggs.
