It's very easy to pick a fight and not use profanity as well as use profanity with no intentions of picking a fight. I think it's all a matter of what you are used to hearing like you pointed out.

So do you feel name calling and profanity on here should be OK to do?

No. I am just saying that those who do not use profanity can pick a fight just as easily as those who do.

I also agree, I do think those who feel the need to use profanity prove their not real bright though.

I don't think profanity has anything to do with intelligence.

I agree, profanity has no bearing on intelligence.

Sometimes no other word will suffice... lol! Though mostly I say it to myself!

Well that's fine that you do.

The problem with profanity is that people tend to ignore your point if you are swearing at them. It is a poor tool for debating or trying to prove a point. The words themselves, I feel, have no bearing on intelligence.

So if its has no bearing why is it looked down upon to use in an intelligent conversation? If the persons smart enough to converse without it why use it?
