Swearing on Mumsnet
314

Kittyinthewood · 29/06/2016 16:34

Just a simple and maybe even a silly question - but why do people swear on Mumsnet? It just often makes peoples comments come across as so aggressive.....the swearing could so easily be avoided...and the comments come across as more considerd. I am interested to read what others think.....Thanks loads folks....XXX

There are no rules against swearing.

I really dislike it when people put kisses at the end of their posts...

Personally I think it's the same as swearing in every day life. Used in a considered way it can emphasise a particular point well. Used willy nilly it looses power.

Because they want To? Because it's a forum for adults?

I am not sweary by nature but I am not going to get offended by the odd swear word either on here or in real life!

I don't get why (on netmums) starring out words is any better. Everyone knows exactly what it 'should' say.

I dont think people should swear just for the sake of it but i do like a well placed " oh do fuck off dear " when somebodys being goady net mums can be ludicrous in that it doesnt allow swearing at all but people can be really nasty and bitchy over there and often dont get called on it.

I spend most of my time singing nursery rhymes with a big smile on my face. If I want to swear on MN then I cunting bollocking will.

I don't like it, personally. But mumsnetters seem to think that by swearing they have one over on net mums and are being all big and clever. I view it as I think most people do in the real world. Effective when used wisely, yet speaks volumes when someone can't string a sentence together without every other word being an expletive.
Of course there are also the upper class ones who think it's funny to do/say what they want.

It always surprises me that they happily use the c and t word. Surely any feminist would know that to use the female genitalia as a term of abuse just isn't on.....
