Why so much swearing?

:iconqplmza:
qplmza Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2013  Professional Interface Designer
Been reading through this forum and can't understand why people swear so much. What's the point?

If someone uses proper vocabulary they can make their points much more forceably.
Plus by swearing a person demonstrates to everyone else
1. Their low intelligence
2. Their lack of morals
3. Their inability to control their temper or their tongue.

So why do it when it makes everyone think you're a moron.

As the OP is no longer with us and this was turning into flamebait material, I'll lock this thread.

I don't think swearing makes me less intelligent and able to control myself. That's ridiculous.

As for morals, they're useless and stupid.

Okay really?

Deactivating while having an account for 11 years over what people say to you on a forum you've never ventured in?

Wow.

It's really disrespectful to assume people who swear have a lack of morals, low intelligence, and associate swearing with someone "who has a bad temper". None of your claims are founded on anything but your personal principles and somewhat huge misunderstanding on how human beings operate.

So you're to tell me if someone does a great deal for humanity, does good for their family, is highly educated, and is giving is automatically clarified as a moron with no morality because of the muttering of crude words? I don't understand that mindset of such judgement over words. It's fine for you not to use the words, but to look down on other people who do it as if they are continuously swearing is pretentious.

Well, at least if he forgets to come back once a week and lets it go for a month, he can't come back on that account. :lol:

Is this a troll? Please tell me that this is a troll.

...oh yeah, I totally forgot that there actually exist people in this world that assign a "magical" prosperity to certain sound utterances and letter combinations. Why such people exist is beyond me.

Please tell me that you are a troll and not one of those people. :pray:

"Their lack of morals "?

I'd love to hear you back that one up, sweetheart.

Profanity isn't a new concept, it's been around since the dawn of time. Same concept, just different words. It's an effective way to assert and emphasize literally anything, without needing to go into length or detail.

As a footnote, linking vocabulary (and use of curse words) to lack of intelligence is completely asinine. An intelligent man/woman won't try to use big words, they understand the purpose of language as a form of communication and will say things in the most simple, straightforward terms. There is fundamentally no good reason to use an expansive vocabulary when a simple one would suffice.

Your arguments are flimsy things, good luck telling everyone how stupid they look. :no:

Well OP since you blocked me for no reason at all, here have this.
Swear words carry no emotion in fact for one...
Not really, "hate speeches" by hitler was very poetic at times in fact. Hitler was a very smart man in fact.
Picasso swore like sailor too.

Don't make judgments.
