And?

I don't understand your reservation on the matter?

There are people (like myself) out there who are like that and in a casual conversation with friends or family, it's not that big of a deal if you're not using them to seriously insult someone (which, incidently, can be done without having to use aformentioned 'swear' words).

If there's no serious (meaning non-sarcastic/dry usage of) offensive intent behind the words, it kind of takes the point out of them being profane.

Profanity are words, expressions, gestures, or other social behaviors that are socially constructed or interpreted as insulting, rude, vulgar, desecrating, or showing disrespect.[1]

What the fucking fuck? If someone fucks fuckedly, you can't say otherwise. Its bad form.

U mad?

Part of the purpose of cursing is to add extra emphasis onto something. It's particularly effective when the person in question swears little, but as people using such language is incredibly common in reality, that dosen't really matter much. People tossing the occasional swear into dialogue adds a degree of realism into the story, and I myself am actually annoyed far more when people use words such as 'heck' or 'darn' in order to avoid swearing.

Also worth pointing out that some things require curse words in order to be appropriately described.

Unless you were referring to the use of swears within the narrative, which is a different matter. That can be annoying as hell, unless it's written in first or second person.

It sounds like you're trying to come across like this:
'Swearing is an unintelligent and unnecessary manner of communication that I disapprove of, and when an author uses excessive amounts of language it displays a lack of creativity.'

You're really coming across like this:
'Swearing is dumb and for poopyheads, herpy derp derp.'

To me, anyway.

Profanity is the crutch of inarticulate motherfuckers.

(and if you enjoy a lack of profanity, why the shit did you decide to join DLP?)
