The whole point of free speech is not to make ideas exempt from criticism but to expose them to it.

M@#her#uc*ing A**hol# IDIOTS!

I have used profanity on this blog. I have tried to do it when the impact desired could best be achieved by using profanity sparingly.

Couple of recent posts, one in which I was called a f#cking idiot, seemed to use profanity for profanity's sake.

In any event, The Decorum Forum is supposed to be a mature discussion of the issues. If you think I'm an idiot, fine. Demonstrate your superior intellect by using your powerful vocabulary and writing skills to prove your point.

In the meantime, if you feel the need to get something profane off your chest, here and now is your chance. Be as profane as you wish in response to this post. In later posts, I will likely edit posts to remove superfluous vulgarities.

:^) excellent post, Mike. You rock.

Great point, Mike. Have a nice day.


Bob Newland said...

Fuck you. Kiss my ass.

Michael Sanborn said...


Sorry the mother of your children doesn't like me. Sometimes the mother of mine, to whom I've been married for 35 years, thinks I'm an idiot, too.

Bill Fleming said...

!!! Bob also rocks.

This is the most fun this blog has seen since it started.

The ultimate Tourette's blog post:

Balls to the walls, boys.


rim cheese!

donky d*ck!

carpet creeper!




(How come Mexican cussing
doesn't sound nasty except
if you're Mexican?)

Mike, after a quick phone call, she has since recanted by saying, "I don't know, I was really drunk at the time."


larry kurtz said...

Btw Mike.

I threw myself in front of a bus to protect another blogger at SDWC and Bill pulled me to safety.

Don't take it personally.

Michael Sanborn said...


I used to be a music critic. I have very thick skin. No offense taken.

Bill! "Balls to the wall" actually isn't dirty! It refers to pressing the throttle on a fighter jet all the way forward to the panel. It's like "full steam ahead," but with jet fuel. Zoom!

And Michael, I don't consider you an idiot and take no position on your sexual activities. Anyone who says otherwise can go to heck.

Mr. Newland is a bit of a prude at times, and my young friend Bill is a darn mean person when he wakes up on the grumpy side.

Bill Fleming said...

Hey, cool, Cory. Good to know!

Does that mean I can start saying it around the office when I want the women in the Art Department to get the lead out and hit the doggone deadline?

Hmmm. Now why do I think that might not be such a good idea.


*dians* (unbelievable)

caheidelberger said...

Say it, Bill! When they give you grief, you can file a sexual harassment complaint against them. After all, they're the weirdos thinking of nookie just because you said "Balls!"

[mantig—what I wouldn't give for a w after that t...]

Bill Fleming said...

Okay, I don't have anything else to post. Just typing in the word verification on this one on this thread will be enough:

My verification word even has a Flickr page:

Profanity has abso-fuckin'-lutely nothing to do with decorum, or lack thereof. OK, that's not entirely true. There is some overlap. Just like some people who consume alcohol, weed or Oxywhatever will get behind the wheel and endanger others, some people will spew so-called profanity without saying much else.

Corollary: some people will get behind the wheel while overtired, texting, distraught over the cancelling of their favorite TV show, etc.--having consumed no inebriants, legal or illegal--and endanger others while some fuckwads will utter no naughty words and still manage to be complete assholes.

See the following timely post for a perfect example (not the post itself, but content referred to therein).

And,So cold, it would "Freeze the balls of a brass monkey" probably doesn't mean what you (or I) always thought it meant.
