A Request for Clarification

When you're talking with someone, or talking in a chat channel, consider this: would you curse when you're around people for the first time? Most likely you wouldn't, as it would leave a bad impression on whoever you were talking to.

Just felt like on principle I had to comment on this (:P). If anyone got a bad impression about you simply because of your choice of flavor words, then said person evidently wouldent be worth knowing, surely?

Anywho, after saying I wouldent expand, I seem to have posted three more times xD Done now.

Mm, I'm in agreement with Cressy here. I do say some things every so often myself, but almost never in chat. It's not -that- important for conveying emotion, as there are stronger and better words for that.

ICly however, I have a few characters that spew some words like drunken sailors. THAT, is something I hope never goes away, because it can add depth to a character. Just, don't be OOCly silly with it. As in, stay with your character.

And Rent, Kiffles. Bootylicious is in the dictionary.

And holy crap, I sympathize with the post thing, Kret

Warning! This is a rant and must not be taken so seriously!

Oh, language! You silly little thing.

First, a language is invented.
Second, words are added.
Third, we ban words because of prudeness.

Why do words exist that people would rather avoid? Is this the fault of the words or the people?


In all honesty, I stick to the rules. I almost never use profanities on the server and rarely so in the chat channels. I do agree with keeping profanities to a minimum as to just avoid conflict.
Little by little, one travels far.

Eh, I believe various people have various preferences as far as vulgarity is considered. I know that I, personally, never curse unless I'm really pissed. Those who know me know that if I'm cursing, the world is trembling beneath my feet (or something like that) ;). In this case, I believe the words would have their full effect, so to speak, when used being as how they're rarely used as it is. When someone uses them so frivolously, they really do lose their meaning. But, I went off on a side-topic. Har. :D

Try to never just say, "My character isn't interested in that adventure." A lot of people mistake this for good roleplaying, because you are asserting your character's personality. Wrong. Good roleplaying should never bring the game to a screeching halt. One of your jobs as a player is to come up with a reason why your character would be interested in a plot. After all, your personality is entirely in your hands, not the DM's. Come up with a reason why the adventure (or the reward) might appeal to you, no matter how esoteric or roundabout the reasoning. -(Source)

I had to look it up after you said that, and good heavens, there's the death knell for whatever was left of a respectable English language. If you'll excuse me, I have to go into mourning now.

What I want to know is, like any one of us is if 'hell' and 'damn' are swear words because we really don't know what the basis is for a swear word now after this incident. I mean, I've been using 'hell' for probably a year now usually starting with 'What the hell is...' and I never got anything out of it. Now, I would gladly stop it, if it was clarified now that it's not allowed. Just want to make sure for myself and not fall for the same thing again in the future.

But...your American, you slaughtered the English language with frivolous use of Zs and simplifying of words long ago! :P
