Gutter language on the forum

If you have something so weird, strange or off-topic to post and think it doesn't belong in any other forum; you're probably right. Please put all your gormless, half-baked, inane, glaikit ideas in here. This might also be a place where we throw threads that appear elsewhere that don't belong ANYWHERE end up, instead of having to flush them. FORUM RULES STILL APPLY.

Not quite sure about online forums, but in general life, there is a high correlation between intelligence and the amount of swearing, the less intelligent you are, the more likely you are to swear in everyday conversation.

These people lack a basic vocabulary to speak normally, and don't have the intelligence to understand that most people find such language offensive and inappropriate
That's absolute nonsense. I doubt you have ever actually met anyone important if you believe that bollocks. You come across as someone who is trying a little to hard to seem "respectable". And that is suspicious.

I would imagine most swearing directed at anyone in particular (on this forum) will probably come to the attention of mods and be deleted. Women swear too FFS. If anything puts women off posting here I would guess it would be the sheer misogyny displayed by certain posters, their commodification of human beings and that kind of thing. It's ironic when you read which posters object to bad language yet keep espousing a whore-monger's life style. Not trying to judge but is it really something to aspire to or promote?
Yea, generally agree with this. The putting down of women, Khmer women in particular, is pretty tiring. I normally choose not to get involved with it, though to any Cambodians / women who read the forum, and there are a few, it can't look welcoming. I know my wife occasionally scans over some of the topics and has no inclination to actually post, she couldn't give less of a shit about any swearing.

The mysogyny here doesn't paint male expats here in a great light, I find it a bit embarrassing really.

Who the fuck knows. We don't have any rules on vocabulary, but we do expect people to be somewhat fucking civil to each other, that's all.

I agree that it can add extra stress to what you are saying sometimes.

If I said 'use the report button' it sounds more like general advice, but if I said 'use the fucking report button' it might come off as me being a bit annoyed.

Swear words are mostly used to express an emotion, or as an emotional reaction.
For this purpose the are very inadequate.

"I'm fucked" tells you very little.
I am tired, stressed out and frustrated gives a much clearer description.
'You are a shit" is not nearly as effective as "you are a lying, conniving fraud" or whatever. If you nail exactly why the person is on the nose i reckon it carries much more weight.

On the other hand they can be used with great effectiveness to emphasise a point - but only if used sparingly.
Just my way of looking at it.

There is also the issue of offending people.
No right or wrongs - but fact is, many people are offended by some language.
Many women, eg, are offended by the c word.
You can take that on board and respect these cultural differences - or can choose to just ignore them and lay down your own cultural values without respecting others.
Personally i reckon it is one of the reasons we have so few regular women members on CEO - not just the languge but the way some members talk about women generally.
Actually, gutter mouth lingo can tell you a lot if taken in context. Here try this:

It was a dark and stormy night. I jumped into my Camaro, fired up a spliff, hit the start button and started headbangin as Nickleback began screaming therough the speakers. Leaving 8 feet of rubber, I pulled out into the road. Hitting 120, I saw the bubblegums lit up behind me. Shit. I had a kilo in the trunk, a lit one in my hand and if the Popo got me I would be well and truly fucked.

So I jammed the pedal to the metal.

Thats pretty clear huh
