    I never use the c word, but I have to be really provoked to swear, I try to use alternatives though, like sugar and ballcocks. I would never swear in Punjabi.
    Punjabi swear words are the best!

    I try to avoid to, but the people I hang out with do it so much that sometimes I end up subconsciously do it. If something really pisses me off then my swearwords end up in the more vehement category, usually i'm pretty good about it. Hate the c word though.

    Yes, I do it - but not at all badly; rather well, in fact.

    Did anyone watch Mock the Week last night?

    "F~~~~~n'.......
    ...BOOOOOOOOOO!"

    haha

    It depends who I'm with, if I'm with the kids then I don't, when I'm with my friends I swear quite a bit, and when I'm drunk I'm filthy. And I use some offensive words in an affectionate fashion.
    Although I never say "for God's sake!" because my little sister doesn't like it. And I try to avoid saying "Oh my God!", but I have trouble with that sometimes, I can usually nip in with the 'gosh' before I say God, but it doesn't always happen.

    I don't swear at home at all. Sometimes I swear if I'm out with friends, not often.

    I swear quite a bit when I'm online though.

    Nah I don't swear, not that I'm against or offended by it. I used to, but I wanted to see if I could substitute them for eupherisms before I said them, and it's just sort of stuck.

    I used to swear so much before, but it's been toned down a lot this year. I still like swearing whenever the mood takes me though...

    I make up my own swearwords, they offend less people.

    Too much, often to myself. I think it's the German in me to be honest, live over there for a bit and they don't care what you say really, it's a bit less strong than if you do it in England.

    considering i'm female i think my language is awful, not only do i have the most common accent ever (which actually, i love and will never change) but i do swear a fair bit, albeit the less 'offensive' ones such as 'bloody' and 'bugger' i say the F word far too much.
    one thing i dont do, and never will do is swear in front of my relatives

    I swear quite a bit. F this, F that, C word this, C word that. Actually.. those are the only two words I really use. I love the C word.

    Why is the "c-word" seen as such a bad word by some? What's the difference between that and the "t-word", and why is the former so much worse?
