A person who uses occasional profanity may receive attention.<quoted text>
That is often the case, sadly, I cannot disagree there. Almost all posts containing true profanity are, in fact, troll posts. However, what is profanity? Many people think it's a set of specific words, such as words filtered by many websites and even the mainstream media. But in reality, a word like "humbug" is truly more insulting, when used properly, of course, but any and all words can be profane, for profanity is simply a word misused, or used for any purpose other than what it was intended for. The most profane words I have heard in many conversations is the word "like," used so many times in ways for which the word is inappropriate. One of the more common ones online is "fag," which has nothing to do with homosexuality in reality. I prefer to read things which are not only correctly worded, but also poetic.
If every other word in a post is profane,... not so much.
Over use of the word "like" is amusing and irritating at times.
Do you read Shakespeare?
