i think the difference is about who/what the swearing is directed at (someone may have already mentioned this, but i didn't read all the posts).
swearing -at someone- should probably not occur, swearing -at something- is probably inconstructive, but using swear words as emphatics probably gets a good story going.
so. how about conditional censorship?

the swearing doesn't bug me that much - if it is not directed against another person because then it becomes bullying. and on todays postings, there have been several examples of somebody who should maybe change their acronym to 'Bully Pro'!

Hello eve, did you stop to consider where this all started ?, if you look back at the posts you can find a
common theme , I suggest that somthing get done and someone has a go at me for not doing it (on the
same day that I actually did the work) then I light heartedly have a go in response , that leads to
someone else taking a shot so I think OK and respond to that in kind, and hey presto here we are with all
of you calling me a bully or aggro or worse , infact I am none of these things , just responding to the
critisisms made to me of wich you are also guilty

I am glad this topic has been re-animated. I was recently inclined to quote in a post one of my favorite sci-fi authors but felt inhibited. Why should Phillip K. Todger be a second class citizen?

I think swear words should be completely deleted from all posts. Never know who is reading and an open forum should be accessible and acceptable across a wide cross section of people.

But at the moment this is a forum where we can talk without the limitations of the political correctness as pointed out earlier.

Also once you start, where do you stop? And thats not just with swear words, if you delete them, you have to also start deleting other offensive words (of which there are many), such as "retard" which appeared in a post recently. soon enough you have a snowball effect where almost anything can be considered offensive to some group of people across your "wide cross section of people".

Basically if everything is allowed, no group is felt discriminated against and this i believe begins with swear words. You simply can't cater for all the different types of people and their potential sensitvities and if you seriously didn't want to offend anyone then you may as well just give up speaking all together!!

Think about Nick Hanc--k, and one of our national treasures the c--katoo. Both these are already
filtered (stupidly). Imagine if they just got deleted.

I stand corrected. I can't even refer to a small cooked bird. This is ridiculous. All puritans and protectors of family values should just get back into your box.
When we censor standard speech to "protect" people from possible offense it's just ridiculous.
