Swearing is not bad, and does not make you look stupid or inarticulate Watch

It is not a swear word though, it is quite acceptable in scrabble. If TSR mods consider it so then it should be XXXXed out.
According to whom? :holmes:

I understand that swear words are allowed most versions of Scrabble.I don't know if TSR censors words they've categorised as 'swear words' or just those that are sufficiently offensive/vulgar.

The whole concept of 'swear words' is completely subjective

who, as described by the bible, is of course a ******* by definition (2). i agree with the sentiment.

Because if you swear at the wrong time it brings down the whole gosh darn tone... you c**t. (Yay to anyone who gets that reference).

I dont mind swear words, i understand there is a time and a place given their social context but they're not inherently a sign of illiteracy. Swearing a lot is the domain of those who convince themselves they're just words though to be cool and alternative (speaking as a swearer, a bad habit picked up in my youth =P ). Those actions we think show nothing about ourselves actually give away the most.
