Indifferent.  However, excess cursing from a person or group of people can start to get annoying.  I curse but try to limit it depending on the setting or who I'm talking to.

I, personally, swear alot when doing online gaming (damn you sucky teams in LoL grrr :D) and it (kind of) helps me relieve the anger :D.

 

Around my family or colleagues I/we swear not so often, except the occasional "sh*t" or "f*ck" when something bad happens.

 

When other people go on a ranting-spree I usually don't care, unless it attacks me personally.

I am not offended by swearing, but it can be overdone.  There are some people I work with (mainly women) who swear too much for no reason.

Add a poll when you have time bud :)

 

Indifferent here, don't care one way or the other.

Racial abuse on the other hand......

I have no problems with swearing, between being in the Military and working support for a NY based ISP I have heard and been called everything under the sun, it doesn't bother me, they are words that people CHOOSE to care about more than others, hell you have people trying to ban regular words, and yet they haven't managed to ban "bad" words, the best thing to do is not care and move on, life is too short to care about non issues like words

I have no problem with the swear filter, mostly because I can figure out what is being said anyway.

 

But yeah, there are times I use the f-word like I use punctuation.

Very against it personally and for others however, I only am against it since it is seen as wrong in our culture... if it wasn't would it still be swearing?
