How wud u react if u see an unexpected expletive in a fellow blog?

I named my blog expletively just fr kicks n initially I thot it ws cool...(of course, I still think its cool Cool) But nw, after u get followers, u realize tht ur blog is as much your's as it is your followers .. yes, besides the obvious profanity in the title, my blog content is far frm it......but i think I may hv offended many becos of my blogname..Embarassed I even came up with an explantion..but it's more a post than tht.

So how do u react to an unexpected bad word in a post?

It'll be nice to knw everyone's opinion Smile

@Raj, I think it depends on the individual. Some might be offended, others may get along with it. Also, the readers can always make out whether usage of swear words in that post is justified or not.

Personally I find excessive usage of profanity very discouraging. Like the sorcerer said, you cant rely on them all the time. but thats my opinion, lets see what others have to say. :)

In India it's always considered kind of cool to use English expletives. :D So if I see an unexpected English expletive in a blog I'd maybe chuckle and think "Ok this person is just following the trends..."..However, if I see an expletive in an Indian language in a blog, I'll laugh and think, "Wow! This guy/girl really has the guts and the sense of humor!"

I would only come to a conclusion after i read the posts, and many a times, fun bloggers do have expletives for a blog name. Nothing wrong in that, but a general perception in India (as Xeno said) is they consider some expletives to be prono blogs/websites.

I think swear words are fine if thats how you talk. I write as I speak. Well, maybe I tone it down slightly, but not much. Overuse can get a tad boring, but if you content stays good, then it won't matter. May make your posts fun though. 

heck, look at gkhamba or flyyoufools- they are both full of "language". I don;t think there is anything wrong with them. They are probably two of the most famous ones, AFAIK, and they use gaalis like nobody's business.

yeah, that is one funny dude.

i guess you already know gkhamba too, right?

gkhamba had an audio podcast in which he intervied the FYF blogger. Boring interview, but shows that even A-holes can be great comics. Or, maybe, only A-holes can become comics.

i will be so ****ing shocked! i write as a i speak...so these expletives are part of my communication...it adds emphasis to wht i intend to say...i dont think its cool or anything...it just shows my lack of skill in the language when i have to resort to unrelated words as adjectives....but i love the flexibility of a swear word...it can be used in so many context...not many words can do that...so if u have a limited vocabulary like mine, swear words come in handy... yeah, u also get the added thrill of offending some morons who thinks their way of communication is the only way a person shd communicate...which in my book is being very talibanish... i say let the filth flow...maybe that way we will perhaps get used to the stink

Maybe we should encode it is as F & B to ride over the objections or reprimand from conservatives. It is an individuals choice how he wants to be perceived by others. Once a way it is okies fokies i suppose, good topic for dicussion RAJ

If that's the only thing you see in a blog, then i guess it's a little discouraging and would move me away from the blog..But sometimes when someone is explaining a situation in a write up, some words have to be used..So i guess it's the need of the situation or a write up sometimes.
