I personally wouldnt go so far as to place the works of writers such as Shakespeare in the same category as "Boones Farm Strawberry Fields," but I will defer to your superior eruditeness.

If I feel that a "curse" is needs to be interjected to show proper emotion I use the cartoony "#@$@#%@#" symbols. People understand what you mean, but you're not actually saying anything inappropriate. I guess unless you're directing it towards someone.

What'd I'd like to see done away with is this smiley:


Drives me me crazy when people use that.
