what do you people think about cursing?

to me, i feel vulgars as a form of expression is okay in a sense. but to scold other people with profanities is totally unacceptable.

It is a sign of "lack of discipline"

It worsen communication amongst people and it is harmful to social network.

Cursing is certainly not okay to me.

Cursing leads discussions to nowhere. Cursing brings you further away from the solution. By cursing, you can hardly get your message across. You will get others into total confusion as a result.

I read about this some time before. Instead of cursing when you are mad, why not try to suppress your anger and keep your head. When all around you are losing control, stay calm and not make matters worse.

Misunderstandings occur when you curse. Just remember that. Silently count till 10 or 20 before you spit out your favourite curses. Usually by the time you finish counting, you will have lost the urge to curse, really.

When you feel very bad,
try to close your eyes and smile for 10 minutes
it works !

i dun think the curse we are discussing here is the curse u are talking about?? i think they are talking about cursing as in using profanities.. swearing those F word, A word... u know...

I think cursing is limited to certain places, certain people and and certain time... I curse a lot... most of the time, cursing myself... Like after making some silly mistakes in a game(computer games and sports alike), in doing homework or quizzes or exam...

For me, cursing is just another way of expressing ur feelings... a way to release stress... (it works for me, but i do feel better after cursing) maybe others might think that it is not 'civilized' to curse, but i rarely curse in the public... so, that's fine for me...
It is also a way of motivating urself... By punishing myself for making silly mistakes by cursing, I tends to be able to learn from those mistakes...

other than that, I only curse in front of my close friends...

Definitely not in front of my parents or relatives, and not in the public...

So, i think as long as u know how to discipline urself and know where and when not to curse, cursing is fine...
