    Hi guys,
    I was wondering whether 'darn it' was a swear word? I try not to swear at all but I hope this one is not a swear word.

    Not according to the TSR swear filter apparently.

    No. It's used in place of a swear word, but isn't one itself. People might still see it as rude because of that context though.

    it is very mild compared to others, but yes it qualifies as swearing.
