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 think if the meme is nsfw it's fair game. Otherwise I try to be civil.

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.

These things have past and we're doing just fine.

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.

But, Mr. Beckett, I'll respect your request and not leave any "F" bombs on YOUR memes since you so respectfully asked everyone not to.

Should I, in the future, leave an "F" bomb on one of your memes, I'll delete it if you kindly remind me not to do it.

The memory is the first thing to go in old age and though I curse, I mean no real disrespect.

I find the lack of personal censorship to be more offensive. We all need to censor our language. Hopefully We do it in church, around children, around certain people. Why not just eliminate profanity from our language all the time? That’s what I try to do.
reply
1 up, 8m
I just said I would "censor" myself to respect Mr. Beckett. Did you not read my comment? You're confusing self-control with censorship. I'm not advocating a lack of self-control. The thing about profanity is, even if you were to eliminate all the bad words from language, society would invent all new ones that use to be just fine to say but are now, in some way, provocative or sensitive to others.

We'd be better to eliminate the idea OF profanity and understand that words are just words and don't allow them to have power over us.

I for one have an opinion on foul language it’s use and how it relates to intelligence and creativity. I work in an environment where the f bomb is used in every possible form, noun, verb, adjective etc. Said so common that you don’t even hear it anymore. I try not to use offensive language but in a public setting I resign myself to the fact that it is unavoidable to hear it. Now my close associates and I have an understanding and mutual respect for a level of discourse that we agree on. So my question is why should we view social media as anything but another public place? I see there is a great community in here with people that have been friends for a long time. But to me imgflip looks like a worldwide coffee shop and people are here to relax and speak their mind. Morals aside our level of tolerance for what we choose to expose ourselves to is our own responsibility. I guess we have a right to go into Starbucks and tell everybody to watch their mouths but I don’t know if that would be recieved well. And I agree someone should not come up to your table butt in and puke the f bomb, but are our posts really private conversations?
I don’t like the f word. It’s worn out and lazy. Jokes are funnier to me if someone bends over backwards not to use them and can still make it work.
Meme on fellow memeers! Nothin but love for y’all!

The fact that your place of employment appears to ALLOW cussing shows me just what kind of world we're living in (which is sad, considering that we're supposed to be civilized). You and others may say, "Dude, chill, It's only a word", but I would counter with, "Would you swear in the presence of someone's grandmother? Or in a courtroom?" If your answer is "No", then I would follow up my question by saying that if there is any place in this world where you PERSONALLY would not cuss, then it is not just another word!
When I'm VERY upset, I do swear! It's ingrained into my head from childhood growing up on the so-called "bad part of town". I don't place myself above others in that respect. However, my point was simply that one should not reply to another's meme/comment using swear words just because they themselves don't seem to be bothered by them. It's damm disrespectful and IGNORANT!
Please excuse my caps and exclamation points, Slim. And I appreciate the time you took to reply, as well as the upvote you gave me (if you did).

God Bless and Keep you and yours :-)

Nothin but respect for you. Absolutely I upvoted your stuff. Your a funny man. And I assure you I feel the exact same way you do. I don’t WANT to hear that stuff. I don’t WANT say it either. Society has changed a lot in so many ways. Do I care for all those aspects? no way. BUT do I want someone to limit my freedoms and choices?
I completely get that if someone is making a direct reply to you they are disrespectful to not honor your wishes. But if you post a meme for the purpose of ANYONE to see and make a comment on and have a side conversation then you have entered into a public arena not the other way around. This isn’t court and it isn’t grandmothers house. It’s imgflip where all bets seem to be off. You can’t just blankety say someone has horrible morals because they use salty language. The memes I’ve seen posted here sometimes offend me way beyond the f-bomb and I don’t think highly of that person, but who am I to judge that person I don’t even know. Let alone tell them to stop their participation in something that is free and open to everyone. Again no offense not trying to pick a fight. Hope you don’t take it that way. It’s awesome that you are having a great discussion with people about this.

“Would you swear in a courtroom?”
Sorry, couldn’t resist,

I totally agree with you. Just because people use profanity in public doesn’t mean I need to invite it into my home. If a guest used it I would ask them to stop or leave. Since I use ImgFlip in my home, I’m asking people to do the same.

No offense but do you watch movies with foul language? Most pg13s drop the bomb. Watch Ferris Beulers day off, super hero movies, so in and so on. I believe you take your home to the public when using the internet not the other way around. It’s a personal responsibility to filter that. My thing is imgflip is a public forum with freedom of expression. There are no guards in place to control that other than an NSFW button. You are asking a public platform to conform to your value system. Right or wrong it’s not going to happen. The stuff I have seen on this site I don’t believe is appropriate for children but the only way I could control that with my kids, if I had any, would be not to let them on it. I would never reply directly to someone I don’t know with anything but respect and manners so that’s what I do here. But I also understand that others have the right to be disrespectful. I don’t think it right but it’s not up to me.

I avoid movies with foul language, but I admit, I don’t completely keep them out of my home. We draw the line at R rated movies. At least PG and PG13 movies limit the amount of profanity.
Like Becket, I don’t expect people to never use the F word on ImgFlip but they can at least refrain from using it when commenting.
