Paul, that's pretty lame. You actually think you (and the others approving of this) have power over people because you cuss and people don't like it? There is no fear involved, just your childish ego.
First, I would not be surprised if someone on the staff deletes your post. Rather than discussing the issue, you choose to attack a person. I am choosing to leave it for now. In fact, I am going to leave it so that it gives me license to respond in kind. But I will limit my response-in-kind to the exact language you used.
If I wander around and say "fuck" then everybody that chooses to fear that word cringes. Maybe even cries out! I, therefore, have power over them. Cause and effect.

Thank you. Please don't tell these people about permies. Because permies is not for people that choose to be offended by "fuck" let alone people that are into shaming others into compliance with such a small, pathetic life.
