Omg, I hate swearing, whether in public or in private. A person is a person, and we shouldn't swear at each other, we should behave peacefully and harmoniously and politely towards each other. I hate impoliteness or rudeness. Thats just my opinion of it, of course.

Swearing in public is technically speaking an offence in England, it comes under the Public Order offence. But police dont actively clamp down on it unless they're already arresting you for something else, since it's not worth their time.
TBH, I too dislike swearing in public. Sometimes I will say it during a conversation, like "f*** hell, that's bad that is!" or such.

It doesn't really bug me as much but I do set an ethical standard for not doing it around religious individuals or people who don't like it in general. I think it should be kept from the public, as for private use - I'm for it if you want to use it.

Words are only words. Use them freely. Profanity is a necessity no matter what the language or time period. If there weren't restrictions on certain words, they would lose some meaning in context. It is good to have "severe" words for the purpose of emphasis. But that emphasis would be useless if no one used them.

@Sir Twisted
I agree with you that we should not be banning words. We are already seeing the slide down into more and more censorship, but unlike in the olden days it is now the left wing who are demanding censorship even tho censorship in the past has badly affected them.
