being crude

It's just not neccesary. Why must we use vulgar wording. Vulgarity is not useful, it only makes you look like a vulgar person. Why would you choose vulgarity! I'm reading here that we, as a group, like to be vulgar. Too bad for all of us.

And who is in charge of determining what is and isn't "vulgar"? I'm reading here that there are plenty willing to step up and volunteer for the job. I hope it never comes to that.

Try as I might, I'll never be able to understand why certain letters, strung together to form a word, can actually upset people. Shit. Piss. Microwave. Automobile. Who cares.... Just words for crying out loud.

Yup. I'm a vulgar person, who uses vulgar words. Guilty, as charged!

Define vulgarity as you like...but it does tell me something about you.
Sorry Nick, you just told me what you think is important.

No apology necessary, Klik. I'm proud that my love of personal freedom was so obvious from my post. The fact that people are free to believe/speak as they wish IS indeed quite important to me. I would have assumed it would be the case for all of us. Perhaps I would assume incorrectly.

What if someone called your wife/mom/girlfriend a slut/bitch/cunt while you were standing there? Would you feel upset or at least understand if your wife/mom/gf was upset? Or would you just think they were letters strung together to form words? For language to be effective there generally has to be accepted meanings for the signs and symbols we use otherwise communication is not possible.

livin' the dream
Looking at this and other sites, a common theme is cropping up; passing judgement on others. I'm sick of it.

If you don't like the way I walk, talk, handle fish, how I cast, crush my barb, park my car, clean my site, release a fish, drink, start a fire, eat, fart (its ALWAYS funny), cuss, move through a run, read water, dress, my gear choice, wading boots etc, etc, etc...Let me know in-person or shut your hole.

Seeking solitude from a-holes is a full-time gig.

At 42, one should be a bit more worldly and understand how to and how not to deal with people.
 
You remind me of what it would be like to live under the taliban.

Yes, without even a glimmer of doubt, swearing and vulgarity does, indeed make my life better...and quite satisfying!
Have you lived under the Taliban? I'm glad for you that you don't live under taliban rules. I'm even more glad that I don't live under your rules, where vulgarity is required to make a better life. Too each his own. Your's is not mine and never will be.

I'd been meaning to tell you that your wading boots suck.
