Well, I must say that if I was a boy in the club, I'd probably make a point
of "casual swearing" just to piss off people like you. Seriously :)
Now, maybe I was a pretty annoying kid (actually, I'm sure I was), but that
kind of policy just gives the boys an easy way to apply laverage...
Re: making a point: When I make a point, "fuck" seems way too dreary.
Perhaps it is the result of its overuse, but I think it's *good* to
encourage people to substitute the unthoughtful "fuck you" with things like
"I'll kill you, slaughter your family, harass your friends, then
dig up your ashes out and piss on them". Or "I hope you choke, go to
hospital and have an operation which lives you unable to speak louder than a
whisper" I mean, come *on*, sex isn't insulting. If the boys in your club aren't
able to come up with colourful swears containing no explicit language, they
should be taught creative writing.

Riley: Yeah, a lot of young people nowadays are experimenting with shortness.
