I have been noticing in the last couple of weeks that many posts on ATS have had curse words in either the topic itself or in one or many of the posts inside it.

Why the increased the cursing?

Any comments?

well as people get angrier and angrier, more suspicious and more antsy about the world around them , the word S---H---I---T it much more appealing than the word "stuff" and f*ck has more emphasis. i dont see any problem with using "curse" words in writing, seeing how they are widely accepted, understanded, and frequently used words in society. but when you use them in every f*cking sentence (
) it shows a lack of vocabulary. GET A THESAURUS PEOPLE


but honestly, i dont really give a sh*t

it's the second step in our world becoming cursed because society stops caring about curse words. the first step was when the fcc allowed them to say # on cop drama.

creative curse words are so much better than your standard ones, and they don't even have to be consider "curse" words they are just hilarious combos of "normal" words, but they can be just as funny with "curse" words as well!!!!!


such as you ask?

I think surfup is more concerned about the increase of posters who tend to curse throughout all of their posts for no good reason. It does just show a weak vocabulary, and is still against the terms and conditions.

Some people will resort to cursing hoping that they can intimidate their opponents and thus win their arguments. But it doesn't work that way in reality.

whoever blames the revival of swing music can kiss it you freggin test tube baby.
the revival never happened, unless you count the downtrodden attempts of the likes of brian setzer.

instead i blame you...because i can.....and because im a stubborn loser who clings to her music closer than her crack........wait, that sounded incrimidating

No, its definitely the Beatles fault that I swear. Every time I hear one of their songs, I am forced to say "That's fooking #e !"

i understand your hatred. i dont mind the beatles, but what pisses me off is whenever people run around saying OH I LOVE THE BEATLES I LOVE THE BEATLES IM A FREKIN MORON BUT I LOVE THE BEATLES...yet the only album they have is BEATLES:GREATEST HITS and they brag about knowing that they are foreign.

We have gotten to the point that "curse words" are a part of our vocabulary. Nothing wrong with that. Like Carlin says, It's not the words that matter, it's the intent. I have no problem with this language, use it myself, and don't mind it used in conversation. Sometimes there is no substitute. When something goes totally wrong you could say, " This sure didn't work", or "That Fu(ked up." Which one conveys more emotion.

Way back in ancient times, the early 1990s, when I was in high school, I found out that every other word out of a teen's mouth was the f-word. It was almost that way back in junior high, but high school, even back during the medieval period of the 90s was filled with so much cursing that you waded through it to get to your next class.

No use of any curse word since that time in my life has ever been so thoroughly pervasive. If I see the words online, I really don't even recognize them anymore as curses and rather see them as everyday adjectives and descriptive nouns.

Exactly, Heel, they have become a part of our vocabulary. Say "sorry" to mom & dad now.

I'm a prarent myself, and there is only 2 words that I will not hear in my house, but I won't post them here, as that would be foolish.

Because the fury of this radical has just reentered into the atmosphere of ATS. that combined with the volatility of the prolific and angry Colonel has created an explosion of rage, usually properly aimed at the ruling party.


I hope that answers your Fuc*ing question.
