I don't mind swearing depending on the context but then I come from a country where profanities are used very differently. I can see what you mean about people leaving them on your posts though, especially when it's not necessary.
I admit, sometimes I get caught up in comments and forget what meme I am even commenting on! I do apologize if I bombed any of yours! I typically try not to talk like a sailor, but you know. Sometimes I do.
Then I would call you a liar. You could legitimately say "some" people, but saying "most" people implies you know for a fact that can speak for the majority, and I'd bet real money that you don't, and that you have absolutely no basis for that assertion.
(I mean, I don't know for certain, you could have taken a survey of every single Imgflip user except me, but I'm pretty sure you didn't.)
That's one of the big things causing problems today, people thinking they have the right to get offended on behalf of others without being authorized to do so.
I think it's important to consider the audience too. That goes for response in any form. Especially when it's a user with whom we are not familiar. I won't get specific because I haven't seen it happen in a while, but you know. I think we should make sure we know the person receiving our comments would appreciate them
For the record, you're the inspiration behind my meme, Nixie. Not mentioning any names, someone recently replied to you with the F word thrown in the mix, and the SH word in another reply. It boiled my blood seeing it! Here you are, a Church-going woman, submitting meme after meme with no cuss words (and no indication that you use them yourself), and it ires me to no end to think that someone would reply to you with that damm F word without even taking into consideration that you might not be fine with it!!
I do my best not be too foul myself. Though unless it is directed at me in some personal way I just overlook it. if I find something truly out of bounds, I won't respond. I also can't say I am not guilty of never cracking an inappropriate joke. I am actually married to a sailor. Or former sailor.He may fit the foul mouthed stereotype sometimes. LOL!
Archie Bunker had the first toilet that flushed on network TV. Murphy Brown was the first working woman. Lots of men refused to let their daughters watch the Murphy Brown, afraid that it was putting bad thoughts in their heads. Elvis was only filmed from the waste up on the Ed Sullivan show, because of his pelvic moves. Many people thought rock and roll was devil worship music.
Murphy Brown was the first working woman on television? LOL How about "Hazel" Or Mary from the "Mary Tyler Moore Show"? Or heck, even Miss Kitty from "Gunsmoke"? Kitty could run a saloon, give homespun advice to every dance hall girl in the joint, shoot the next bad guy that walked in, stitch up her wounded barkeep, make love to the marshall, feed all the stray dogs in town and still make time to bake a cake for the church social. Now THAT woman knew how to work.
