Did I just miss the "NSFW" warning? There's some swearing at the end that some of my co-workers probably could have done without :(

If they can't stand a fuck or a shit then they should move to the South pole or grow up, it's impossible to avoid swearing these days. just heard a few and I'm listening Public radio (paid from our taxes really)

Or you know, you should probably WORK at work instead of browsing WoWinsider.

Elmo, you must live in a very sad environment if you cannot keep away from swear words. I do a fine job of it, for my daughter's sake, because of the negative perception it still has. Just because you and your peers don't think it's a big deal doesn't mean your opinion is THE opinion.This should carry a NSFW warning, for individuals who indeed have downtime at work and can browse the web freely. =)

I have no issue with it personally. People browse the internet at work, thats the whole reason websites created the "NSFW" warning. I've seen it on WI several times before. It's a courtesy. Some of you must either don't work, or work in non-professional environment where casually swearing is ok. Here and at several companies I've worked at, that's just not ok.

Elmo - it's not impossible to avoid it. You just don't want to. And it's because of that reason that certain words have become "acceptable"; however, the words that you used in your post are not acceptable in ANY public environment or else we'd hear them on daytime television and "G" rated movies. It isn't Ikarus that needs to grow up, nor Ikarus' coworkers. Rather, it's you.Nick - you've never heard of paid breaks or lunch time before?

I don't consider my environment sad.I work as a gardener when I or one of my colleagues hurts his hand or is pissed at something, strong words fly all over the place, it's just we do pick our words.anything sex or feces related is fine.any disease or religious swear is crossing the line really as people actually have a reason to be offended by it.During day time hours it's not odd to hear songs like 'Fuck You' from Lilly Allen or some uncensored hiphop on public radioMaybe I shouldn't have said grow up but rather something along the lines of accept the world as it is and stay relaxed.Also it may be a cultural difference about what words can be accepted, I'm not American (and I suspect you are)
