Why so much swearing?

qplmza 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?

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.
