I admit, I say the d-word more then I should (I blame influence from my grandpa and mother), and occasionally the s-word. I've been trying to stop though. I think the f-word is never justified though, it's just really not necessary. Being only 13, I really shouldn't be saying things like that anyway. -_-

Ha, u should see me in school.
I've tried to replace all swears with quail or napkin from now on. It seems to be working... kinda...

I think this needs a bump to remind everyone of it.

Yeah I agree.  And I'm a bit confused about Confessions.  Is swearing okay there?

Creative expression in this case really refers to fiction - poems, short stories, RPs when you're in character, that kind of stuff. I'm sorry if I didn't make that clear enough.
In Confessions there are usually strong emotions and some words are going to get through, but try your best to star them, especially if someone asks.

Okay.  I really don't swear much, but there was little bit of a dispute about it.  :P

Nvm, I see you took care of it.

That hasn't happened to me, but to people I know. What's your profile pic? It looks like the Justice League or something.

I knew it was one of the two. I just couldn't make out any of the actual heroes because the pic was too small. That's cool.

I think swearing is okay when you really mean it an in stories, but when it's not fitting for context it's annoying. Especially when there is no context. Some people at my school will just scream swear words without context, and it is SO ANNOYING. I think people should be able to swear in Confessions, though, as long as they use *s.

I think I am safe, since I really don't swear in text, and say BLEEP in real life. Just habit, I suppose.

This is barely related, but have you read Paranormalcy?
