    "Bother", "dash" and "darned" are still allowed. What more could you need Mark?

      I think darned is frowned upon.

            Doo-do heads.
            Besides being a guitar player,
            I'm a big fan of the guitar.
            I love that damn instrument.

              I take it you don't have a much of a vocabulary.

                The heck you say. Seriously, I don't generally find it necessary. In fact, I'm an occasional member of a non-music-related forum where profanity is not only allowed but encouraged and I'm not particularly comfortable there. You haven't lived until you've been cussed out by a mod simply because he thinks you're wrong about something. My sister-in-law used to be fond of saying "Profanity is a sign of a weak mind."

                  I remember one of our playwrights talking about how, in the desert war, their armoured vehicle broke an axle and the corporal looked underneath, kicked the wheel and said something that sounded a bit like

                  "Fack! The Facking Facker's Facked.
                  "

                  Sometimes there isn't the time to think up fancy language.

                    Gives you opportunity to develop vocabulary skills. Shakespeare and many others seem to be able to get ideas across without profanity.

                      Profanity is vocabulary.

                      Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything. - Plato

                            Fixed. Seriously, he invented words like "zounds" and "odds bodkins" precisely because they were replacements for contemporary profanity (i.e., "God's wounds," "God's bones.") I'm sure we all remember W. C. Fields and "Godfrey Daniel." We knew what he meant but he didn't have to say it. He was pushing the envelope like Shakespeare. "Drat" and "Curses" work too. In normal circumstances, "Oh, poop!" is about my limit.

                              Mark, the irony is the "curse filter" doesn't operate at top level, so if you go to your thread in the front page and let your cursor rest on it, you will see your own profanity
