This is what I found when I idly googled my NN just now.

I would like to know what’s so provocative in the tv topics

TrinityBelle Mon 20-Nov-17 12:26:03

Oh no. What a fucking shame.

QuimJongUn Mon 20-Nov-17 12:26:46

I'm just chuffed that my inventive foulmouthery is finally getting the recognition it deserves.

NumberEightyOne Mon 20-Nov-17 12:26:56

Fuck off. I don't believe that bollocks.

How interesting! I wonder if they'll ban swearing? They must at least discuss the possibility

Wolfiefan Mon 20-Nov-17 12:27:39

Oh fuck. That's shit! grin

That Swear Chart is hilarious. Cannot believe people went to the trouble of compiling it.

What a cunt

QuimJongUn Mon 20-Nov-17 12:37:18

Apparently 'God' is a swearword. Whoever compiled that chart would fucking shit themselves if they ever went to church.

QuimJongUn Mon 20-Nov-17 12:38:37

Why is Chat not featured on that graph? We're fucking vile in Chat. Perhaps it broke the chart and they had to leave it off.

averylongtimeago Mon 20-Nov-17 12:47:38

Well bugger me! Who would have fucking thought it? Mums swear on mumsnet, how shocking!

I actually think the amount of swearing has gone down, if you look at it as swears per person per post, but I'm not going to compile a spreadsheet to prove it.

The amount of swearing on here doesn't have an effect on the number of times users see adverts or click on links though, so why should advertisers be bothered?

Bag of wank, clearly.
