    I do it if I want. If people are offended by these words (and I don't usually use them in nasty, horrible ways, though I did once because I was angry about people who are complete jerks who said nasty things about my daughter - so they deserved it IMO)... they can always block me/unfriend me/stop my posts from showing up for them.

    I have WAY more issue with some of the crap that takes me ages to read... "spndn tym wiv ma bay-b..." etc. OMG it makes me want to punch them!

    Doesn't bother me. What we consider 'swear words' these days are on the way out. I listened to a swear word expert talking at a conference and she was talking about how taboo language has moved from religious (damn, Jesus, etc) to sexual (f**k and c**t) and is now moving to the 'isms' (f*g, n*****r). I personally find the latter far more offensive than the f bomb.

    derogatory terms for a homosexual man and a person with black skin.

    My toddler is too. He dropped an f bomb the other night, in context too. I had to leave the room because i was afraid of laughing

    I've deleted several of the same.

    No real problem with an f-bomb. I just *tsk* internally and move on.

    A c-bomb gets people deleted (if there weren't close friends - they might just be un-subscribed)
    I don't like that one....

    I don't care if people say either - I'd be a hypocrite if I did! They're not saying it AT me. If I didn't want to read it, I'd have to delete quite a few friends! (I don't believe in hiding anyone - whats the point of being friends if you don't even communicate?)

    My boss sent me a friend request and I told her I'd only accept if she understood that I occasionally use swears!

    Doesn't worry me.

    I agree Fearless Leader - I find those words much more offensive.

    I find text speak incredibly irritating.

    Honestly....grammar errors bug me WAYYYY more than swearing.

    The biggest annoyance is "your" instead of "you're".

    I have approximately 105 Facebook friends and none of them ever use the 'C' word (seriously, never ever). The use of the word f$ck doesn't bother me.
