Well, while I am -A- mom, I'm not everyone's mom. I would much prefer if the community completely self-censored and chose words that always made them sound like intelligent and reasonable human beings. This is what I teach my kid. Here, however, I am extremely uncomfortable telling other people precisely how to speak and washing away any words that others find distasteful. We have very specific guidelines here and have chosen not to go crazy with hard and fast rules or censorship and I do think that, by and large, we have managed to strike a palatable balance between freedom of expression combined with a sense of general decorum.
