Question Hello (Question about Profanity)

Hi, I'm from South Africa and I've always liked computers and electronics, etc. So just before I go any further, what is this site's take on profanity, swearing and being uncouth? Are any swear-words allowed or only allowed if not to insult someone? Thanks in advance, just thought I would not get off on the wrong foot

You can use them, but I believe you have to censor any profanity that is used. e.g. F*** off you sh** head

Better not to use it, there are lots of alternatives out there to use, and make you sound more creative

Things will be removed and warnings will be given out if they are taken to far or offend people as said above its best not to use and its easier finding an alternate to take its place

I tend not to use it, but I've seen it being used (but censored). The F word is not used as much, but words like sh** are thrown around. Best not to take it too far as said above, better to use it conservatively or not at all
