I can't believe people would WANT to swear. What does it do? Make you feel better? More superior? Cooler? :roll: :roll:

Yeah, yeah, scientific studies, etc etc.



But honestly, does it make you any better as a person? Would people respect you more? People would just think you're immature.

You mean like how people excessively use the eye rolling emote? Yeah, I agree.



There are people who swear when it's uncalled for just to be cool, but you can't stereotype every person who swears as that. Ever stub your toe on something really sharp? A "Gosh darn! Fiddlesticks!" never sufficed for me.

Swearing really is just another way to express your feelings.

Jagex says not to report someone if it is censored, so I don't see how it is a deterrent. More like the opposite.




I could make a separate rant about this. What the hell is the point of a censor if it is meant to be a detterant if they say, "It's okay to abuse the crap out of someone, as long as it's censored." wtf. I find that f*ck is the same as ****, just different symbols. It has the exact same meaning :| stupid rules...

Swearing excessively and inappropriately (where it doesn't make sense) is what makes you look immature. It's kids that think that, because you're using "bad words" it makes you look cool.



Lewis Black said that "There's no such thing as bad language. We are adults, these are the words we use to express frustration, rage, anger, in order that we don't pick up a tire iron and beat the [cabbage] out of you. What is the good language we're supposed to use that's supposed to help overcome certain things? What do people say who don't use those words? Someone who, after 40 years, loses their job, is fired, or let go, and they lose their pension, their welfare, and their benefits. They lose everything, do they sit on their couch going "ohh [kitty]feathers. Sassafras, sassafras, sassafras."



As George Carlin said, there is no such thing as a "bad word", it's bad thoughts, not bad words. The English Language just hit a million words, and we have more words to describe bad words, than we have bad words. It's all about your perspective.



I dare you to say the phrase, "The G.E's handing out 3rd Age pretty [racist term]rdly" in Runescape, at the General Exchange, in world 2, and see how many times you're reported. The word [racist term]rdly means stingy, reluctant to give out, etc. There's about two possible definitions for the word, and none of them include the ethnic slang some of you probably thought it would. Yet, if you were to use that, you'd probably be branded a racist.

So to conclude:



Swearing excessively is immature and stupid. This is the case here.



But swearing when you stub your toe or something is just a way of expressing your feelings.

I read somewere the meanings of two popular "swear words". I am not sure were so dont ask me for sources.



One starts with an f and the other with a c, can you guess what they are? Good. ;)



One means fornication. under. the. commandment. of. the. king, in ye ol times when the king wanted a bigger army but the population was a bit low he wanted people to have kiddies so the population would increase and the army could get bigger. Belive it or not, its up to you.



The other one doesn't exist, it was first used in a poem for something a nun wears "c**ts and cowls" then some body gave it a different meaning and it evolved into what we knoiw it as today. Again it is up to you wether you belive it or not.

I've been playing RS for awhile now, and here is just what really annoys me



Price limits Blame real world traders- people used to just be able to give real money and buy items in the game now I don't see how they can which is good.

trying to work the ge but having my character click out of the window and run away all the time I thought they fixed this but I guess not.

language filters They took out some of the things but the words they still filter I don't see a reason to use.

the stupid formula for getting stuff pvp Blame real world traders- they're the cause of not being able to get the players items.



feel free to comment or add to the list

WTF is your problem? Swearing for me conveys frustration, or if I use it in a joke, I make sure its clever. Studies confirmed that people who swear can stand pain longer than those who don't. I'm looking at what you said and I hope its a joke, but if it isn't I honestly am offended.

I just read all the posts on this page, and I agree with everyone who disagrees with quelmotz or whatever. I hate excessive swearing, but I am against all forms of censorship. I cuss when I can be clever with a joke, or when I'm expressing how I feel. I never EVER buy censored music, because that to me is an attempt to edit the feelings of the artist, when he/she/they were trying to express their feelings.

Were are these studies cos I don't swear much and I am a masochist :lol:



Your offended by that?!?!? :shock: Your not insulted often, are you?

Would you swear in front of a child who is learning to speak and not feel guilty or look at there perant and ask if it's ok to swear infront of them?



Would you want porn and ultra violent games such as manhunt to be available to every body? Would you want games in bad taste, such as a game being released in japan were the object of the game is to rape people, to be censored or only sold to over 18's?



Some censorship is a good thing.

I understand that its not very much, it just bothered me a little.





There's a difference between censorship and preventing a child from seeing something he/she doesn't quite understand yet. My point is that each song,movie, painting, whatever is the creation and it should not be censored by a bunch of self righteous people who have convinced themselves they are doing God's work. I am not advocating allowing toddlers to watch porn or a violent movie, I am just against other people changing someone's work becsue they think it is offensive. I know not everyone here lives in the US, but the First Amendment of our Bill of Rights says and I quote, "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances." We have the right to say what we want when we want, and the Federal Government can't stop us. I would not let my children watch violent movies, play violent video games, or listen to bad music until I felt they were mature enough to understand them. I am simply against altering someone else's work based on an individual's opinion of it.

That's a great point.



Congress can't infringe on your right to free speech. If you work for a company, you better believe they can, or else you suffer the consequences for it.
