    Sometimes yes, sometimes no.


    A lot of it comes down to style, and, for me at least, a lot of it comes down to intent... There are times when I won't use profanity, but there are other times when I can't think of any other words to use - it just fits too well with my  [despair/anger/outrage/fear/angst/whatever emotion] that I'm feeling at the time.

    I don't make a point of being obscene, but I'll do it. Sometimes, it serves as a kind of emotional punctuation. For some people it does substitute for articulation - but for others (I'd hazard a guess of most), the use is very deliberate.

    A computer lets you make more mistakes faster than any other invention in human history, with the possible exception of handguns and tequila. - Mitch Ratcliffe
