Profanity


Profanity is a lack of good vocabulary skills.

RE: Profanity

And how you just got that point across without having to use profanity is amazing! Kinda' like the comedians who are the funniest and never let a profane word cross their lips. They are the experts in their field. It takes effort to express oneself correctly--the main reason so much profanity is being used as a hide-behind crutch these days.

Thank you, WryWriter. I'm glad someone agrees.

RE: Profanity

Now, was that nice, Gman? 8-)

I meant when it's used indiscriminately, without purpose other than to use them. Admittedly, it's expected in stories of war time and such. But does it belong in poetry? I'm talking about the hard core words.

RE: Profanity
No, I get exactly what you are talking about. I do use it in stories from time to time as sometimes it lends itself toward the use, but not just for the sake of it.

RE: Profanity
I agree, damommy. The head at my school used to say that, and I've never forgotten it.

RE: Profanity

Whew! I was afraid everyone would be mad at me for saying that. Like Gman said, if it fits in the story, that's fine. No one expects anyone who's being shot at to say, oh, darn.

What amazes me is how many reviews these pieces get!

Thank you all for your support.

RE: Profanity
Might be quite funny, though, if you had a story where people were being shot at and things like that, and they came out with things like, 'that's a bit of a bad show, what!', and, 'that wasn't very nice of you,' lol.

RE: Profanity

In the Poirot series, his sidekick Captain Hastings would say something like that. LOL

Yes, he would, wouldn't he? 'Dash it all, Poirot, there's poison in the coffee! I find that quite upsetting.'
I love Poirot. I love how none of the relatives of the deceased ever seem that bothered about the death of their loved ones. There's always this sort of, 'mother's dead? What a crashing bore' attitude.
