    My updates are usually light hearted though, not an aggressive nature

    see, i dont care about people swearing... heck i swear (not all the time though) but not on facebook.

    but yeah, it's the agressiveness behind the swearing that i dont like.

    my big brother swears ALL the time but he uses the f word in place of and. (iykwim) so i dont even notice it.

    its swearing in my example above that i just can't stand.

    I don't have an issue with the occasional f-bomb, especially if it's used in jest. I've rarely seen any of my friends use the c-word. Most of my friends are aged over 30 so I don't have to witness much rubbish.

    I thoroughly enjoy swearing, but I generally don't on facebook as I'm friends with my MIL, who is quite conservative.

    But swearing like my brother (who is a massive bogan) does is too much - every second word is "f" and "c" and he uses it aggressively sometimes. although sometimes, it can also be a term of affection, eg. he will greet a mate as "hey, c***, how's it goin'?"

    I think people get a little bit precious about the 'f word' to be honest.

    I have had a few FB friends who constantly swear, but it is usually accompanied by something disrespectful, aggressive or just completely disgusting, so I deleted them, but it was more to do with WHAT they were saying, rather than HOW they were saying it...

    ^ This. I don't have any actual friends who would use that kind of language. My niece and nephew do though and it makes me cringe to see it. It's weird though - they never actually TALK like that, so why do they write it?!
