"blood squirts out of his nose, nobody says fudging poo after that. You might get some bitch talk shit to you, but give her a look like you're gonna smash her in the face next, watch her shut the fuck up."

I have to agree with malone, from a business point of view.

But I agree domdino.


I suggest, alamdv users make up a few swear words, just for our community.

eg: Oh PLUG IT, could be f..k it.

you crazy son of a oink

stick this up your eek

Bobby: They say the smog is the reason we have such beautiful sunsets. Ray Barboni: That's what they say, huh? What a bunch of fudging bovine poo. "

"Fuck you, fuck ball"

" They say the fucking smog is the fucking reason you have such beautiful fucking sunsets. "

NO!

Now, I know that we all love a nice swearin' every once in a while, including me - heck - I swear every day! But when you're talking about forums about something that has NOTHING to do with language, or a metal band, swearing is just cheap. You don't need to swear to get a point across. USE CAPS! That stands out more.

EXAMPLE: THIS STUPID THING! compared to: this piece of s__t.

What's wrong with that simple substitution? It's not like it requires more energy or something. . .

We're not a bunch of Sophmores, you know.

And if you are, don't talk too much. razz

Theres no real need to. As others have said, lots of people who come to this site could find it offensive. Also, If your trying to advertise a product, swearing and otehr non professional behaviour will but people off buying it.

Oh come on, who get's offended by the word "5h1t". This is the year 2002, no one cares, little kids are swearing from the moment they're born. I agree that there are better ways to get the point across but in a situation where the best word to say has four letters has a "H" second, an "S" first, a "T" last and an "I" stuck in the middle. Then I think it should be allowed.

hahahahhahahahah, im with you on that flip....i took it "that way" as well.



now i we gotta wonder if b4 did that on purpose.....ah, bolt it in, its too flaging non-intelligent. crud.

(now does anyone know what i was trying to say? at first, doubtful, and these censors confuse us).

malone: i saw just make it f*** or **** and for SHIT it should be CRAP. crap is not a swear word, though it is used in negative terms most of the time. though technically, its not a swear word.


hmm, talking about swear words, find "7 words you can't say on TV" by George Carlin. Very funny stuff....mainly because of the way he says it.

number 1. Swearing can be used to emphasise a point.

eg. saying oh darn it has nowhere near the kind of strength that something like freak this queer fecal smoking mother has. You might argue that the use of swearing to emphasise a point is only there to mask the lack of understanding and talent, well bollocks to that. biggrin

number 2. Everyone expects swearing if you goto a public forum. I totally agree you shouldn't go through your pages saying things like here are the pooey plugins you bean snapper, but in a forum it doesn't make anything unprofessional.

number 3. Its not that i want to swear constantly, its just we had a thread that was of cool one liners and stuff, and they were all getting totally destroyed by the censor thing, just stick some ** in the middle and it wont confuse people. There are other times when people have said things like "its the shizzle" (as in its the bomb) and it has shown as "its the poo" which was misunderstood by the person and they thought they were being insulted.

I agree that kids should not necessarily be exposed to bad language, even though they are surrounded by it every day (through television, practically anywhere else on the net, friends… rude older brothers (?)) and surely it is the responsibility of a parent to ensure they are not exposed to these things, or the parents should get a grip and understand the world their kids are growing up in and perhaps no be too concerned about them seeing the occasional swear word. Its not like we wanna go around singing poo poo poo poo at everychance we get, I just don’t want the word fecal matter to say poo…. !

biggrin

But it is fun to change it to poo. twisted

It always changes the tone of someones post. They are attempting to emphasize with the word but when poo gets put in there the post looks silly. I think it is great to change it to poo or whatever the mod wants to change it to. STOP CRYING and USE OTHER WORDS.

We have to keep the forum clean reguardless of what opinions there are on the matter. Just like on TV you can say it all you want but they will most likely bleep it. sleep

Well, replacing swear words with "frick" "crud" and "heck" is just sad, and really takes the feeling out of the movie, unless it is meant to make fun of people who use those words.

number 1. Swearing can be used to emphasise a point.
As can bold text, italics and CAPITALS while you're posting on a forum. Or for *real* emphasis BOLD AND ITALIC CAPITALS. Oh, and the odd exclamation mark goes a long way too!

number 2. Everyone expects swearing if you goto a public forum.
I don't.

I don't find it offensive, but I don't expect it; and there's no need.

number 3. Its not that i want to swear constantly, its just we had a thread that was of cool one liners and stuff, and they were all getting totally destroyed by the censor thing
If it annoys you that much, go and find another forum to post one liners on. Set up your own if you can't find one.

No, but unless you have severly limited actors, then I'm sure they can find another way to convey the same emotion...

You only need swearing to emphasise a point if you are a dullard or your point is not very good or both.

The only good reason to swear IS to be offensive. By using swearwords all the time you simply dull down their usefulness. In general language there is always a better word but a lot of people swear all the time because they are not very educated and don't have a wide vocabulary.

That's why swearing isn't neccesary here and its quite good that they are changed to something lame because it points out how lame the person who felt they had to resort to them is.

I cant even believe that a thread about such a thing was ever created. Does it really upset some of you when your cruel words are changed so it doesnt offend anyone? honestly? Swearing isnt needed anywhere. ESPECIALLY not a place like this. we do have young adolescents around (brettsta, no offence) and its just not called for. Using swear words are really a last resort when you have nothing intelligent to say. Its like using physical contact on someone when you have nothing good to say to prove a point or an argument. Why bother? to emphasise a point? pfft, please. like arktic said, bolding your words can do just the same, so can CAPS. And what would the "S" word be needed here for anyway?? no one here fights with eachother. Sure occassional jokes use it here and there and so do other things, but why even bother with those? or if you want to bother with them, alter them a little to make yourself sound a little more intelligent and not so dull.

And about the issue, I only think some cursing is bad like the n word. Thats a terrible thing to say, but I think everything else are just words. I dont think they should be classified as "bad," but because they are and some people find them offensive, it is a good idea to not allow them on the forums. It is pretty funny how these things are changed to funny stuff.

well, I think that in some cases, swearing is needed, and I don't think that if you use it, you are taking an easy road out.|

here in utah we have a horrible place called Clean Flicks. they take out the swearing in movies and replace them with stupid Frick words. On saving private ryan, the owner said "I dont need to hear the 'F' word to know what happened that day". What is more powerful? In the heat of battle: YOU SON OF A BITCH! YOU ******s! JUST GIVE US A CHANCE! or YOU SON OF A GOSH DARN DOODY HEAD! (i got this example from the daily show)

and when orin hatch was in traffic, he regreted it because the movie had swearing (he had no problem with the drugs or violence though). that movie wouldnt have been as natural if they had used all the frik words, or even took all the swearing out.

anyway, saying you are a bad director, or need better actors is stupid, because lets say that shooting someone is like swearing. if you cant figure out a better way for the problem to be solved and the guy having to be shot, then get better actors! [/sarcasm]

anyway, Its not like I think swearing is cool or bad ass, I just think it is natural in extreme cases, and see no problem with it side by side with violence and substance abuse. (in films)

Cuss words can be used in many ways but there is no true way to tell what you mean when you say them ( especially on the internet people read it and see no facial expressions ).

So I say they should not be changed even though the poll is colsed

Also remember that different people are sensitive to different things. For example, a lot of the Americans on here are happy with blood and guts and swearing and whatever but one boob in a movie in the cinema and there was outrage!

I just saw something on the news about cable companies now blocking tvs from channels the pparents want for free. They interviewed some parents and one of them said "I'm getting rid of MTV." Give me a break. Get a life. One girl in my school isnt even allowed to watch friends. Now thats strict.. Why people are so sensitive i dont know.

Good point Kid. The social/cultural differences are pretty funny. Its okay for unadulterated blood and guts. Yet, a bare breast makes we yanks go nuts. How backward and insane that is.

Personally I would much rather have my kids see a scene with frontal nudity than seeing someones blood spilled. However most of the "puritanical" citizens in the USA dont agree with me. "NO my kids cant see the human body but it is okay to see someones brains splatter on the wall." Sheesh, I should not have brought this up it is starting to tick me off a bit. unsure

Back to the topic at hand. I would rather my kids see nudity with no violence than swear words right and left. "Colorful Metaphors" are funny sometimes but I personally think they are overly used in most flicks. In most cases the F bomb is dropped to get the "R" rating to increase ticket sales. Or at least that is what I keep hearing. However when you look back at the top grossing movies of all time... Guess what? No swear word in any of them. "Hmm, Isn't that special!" twisted

One thing I would like to say/have changed. I agree that it should not change the word to poo. I think numerous other words would be better. These could include pinapple, orangutang, or any other random word. I think that people would find this humorous and pass right by it(hopefully)

Well, if you don't want to see such a change, don't swear.

I agree with AverageJoe, nudity is nothing compared to violence and profanity. Seriously, mostly everyone will end up imitating these movies with nudity and sexual procedures anyway when they're older but violence and profanity is surely something that shouldn't be mimicked (I'm not actually supporting prostitutes here or anything like that but more of something revolving around married life. )

I'm Indian and when I went to India for summer break, I was kind of surprised at their rating system. Apparently, they had prohibited kids from watching anything but G movies. Anything rated over than that could only be seen by adults. There wasn't anything like PG or PG-13. It was either G or not G, literally.

As for the swearing, why would you want to swear? To prove a point? To emphasize? Is it not possible to use any other word but a swear when proving a point? There are +million words in the English dictionary. There's no way one would be a loss of words when constructing a sentence.

Also, I tend to feel that sentences, insults, are way better/stronger when the more intelligent words are used. When someone offends me by using the "f" word or b****, I just don't care. I then look at that person and amuze myself of his illiteracy as the thought of a lifeless "dullard" who's poor and has nothing to do with his life, one who desires nothing. However, when I'm insulted by one of the more educated insults, then I fight back, but other than that, I'm usually untouched.

Swears are just too common now a days so I really don't see how they can make an insult a strong one.

I don't think I have sworn ever on this board. I don't swear much. Pretty much the only time is in school and around people my age(I am a freshman in high school, so there's pressure). The people that I see, that swear a lot(at least more than others), seem to be less intelligent than those that don't as much(I'm not saying that those that swear a lot here are idiots, this is more of a generilization). The only reason I posted before is because I think that it would be funny. I seriously think they should do that for people on here that do swear.

I never swear cool .... and that's not only because I'm christian, I just dont get the point of it: I mean, why use a "bad" word in the English language when you can use a good one? Only reason I see is because you can't find another word to use... but then you have a problem.

Well, if you can't find a better word, then in essence, you probably are not so intelligent in the first place. I'm also not saying that everyone who swears isn't intelligent, but it just makes that person unintelligent which kinda contradicts the reason for why you'd want to swear: "to make your point stronger".

Holy orangutang-ing pineapple unsure unsure

Who in the turkey-ing world cares if people use cuss words. I sure don't. If you want to express your...wait a second. Holy orangutang-ing pineapple?!? eek Did I type that? biggrin

Heh, I like that idea. It would be funny. To be honest, I can see a practical use for swearing, but that's only in extreme circumstances. And I'm not justifying it, but I can see how it could slip out of almost anyone's mouth.

But for everyone else, especially at school (I'm a high school freshman too) it's just stupid. I probably hear over 300 swear words a day. And what practical application is there for this? None. People just think it's cool, but really it just shows their immaturity.

Personally, if you cuss all the time, I can't stop you, but you don't have to do it on a forum like this. I think you're more creative when you express your opinion without swearing, because most people do swear.

Answer - No it shouldn't be allowed. It's a swear word and although I do use it in conversation sometimes I don't think it has a home here on a friendly internet forum for films (primarily).

End.

*note pertaining to Lloyds statement* I don't think it's cool, thats not why I occasionally do it. It's pretty much peer pressure.


Oh, and does anyone else agree with my idea about replacing swear words with random words razz(maybe there could even be a random generator so you don't know what word it is)?

There are two types of swearing:

The meant-to-be offensive that has a negative goal to it.

and the meant-to make conversation more interesting. I really do find the odd swear here and there to make conversation/reading/whatever more interesting because its more real. The swearing needs to be in context, but I have no problem with it whatsoever. and the F word IS the most versatile word in the entire english language; it can be used anywhere.
