The LA Times had a story that claimed that 64% of U.S. citizens use the
word "fuck" and that 74% of us have heard it in public (I'll assume the
remainder are your fellow AOL users). I expect extrapolating these
results worldwide wouldn't be far off the mark (the Brits were quite
successful at spreading this versatile word).
I think the gap between what people actually find offensive and what
people are afraid others will find offensive is pretty wide indeed.
