Offensive language

Is there any way that we can block insulting words in Swedish, as they are censored in English? I don't understand why it is ok in one language and not in another?
There are two choices:

1. Get rid of the censorship totally by allowing certain words to be used.
2. Allow every word in the English language, as well as Swedish.

isn't it easier to do what was done earlier?

step one: ask author of offensive post to edit
step two: report abuse

People who are offended by use of language, are more than a little out of touch with todays world where expletives are common currency. I' am not in the least offended by words, but rather the sentiment behind them, that said I do try and moderate my language to fit the occasion, especially when I have tea with the F***king Queen laugh.gif

Maybe in your world. In my set, they are not used at all.

You must live in pretty rarified company FR, I thought as much chatting with you on other threads, but if you would care to step down to the real world with the majority of Western folk you will find its there everytime you turn on your TV, step out of your door or engage with the masses in whichever way you please. Personally I would prefer a little more Gentility in this world but I deal with facts not illusions.

I don't know. I have honestly found our discussion of Swedish obscenities rather enlightening. Especially since it made me really evaluate my perception of similar words in English. There's a certain eloquence in blunt, visceral language, too. I've always had an appreciation for a well-placed choice use of profanity. (And I'd rather read profanity in any language than fjordman excerpts any day.)

It is quite easy to live without profanity and having to reduce yourself to the level of the lowest common denominator. My circle is filled with well-educated and successful people who don't need to resort to the use of expletives.
