      Thanks for this post from:

      How many times have you been out and have slipped a few profanities? How many times have you been at work and wanted to just BLEEP BLEEP everyone? How many times have you just wanted to BLEEP just for the feel of letting it out? I read this below it was very interesting to read.. and yes sometimes when you do just let out those BLEEP BLEEPS you do feel a little bit powerful.. they are powerful words and can turn heads in an instant.. read this lol

      Swear words in the workplace might sound like a fairly juvenile way to build a sense of solidarity, yet they are essential. The pleasure of using a forbidden word can be pretty powerful. And when that pleasure is shared, it is more thrilling still. One feels like a renegade 13-year-old, armed with an illusion of competence and power. You might be a cog at a trading desk, compensated with nothing but money. But you can drop all the f-bombs you’d like. Until now, that is. Now your e-mails will be scanned and filtered by sophisticated software, heightening the sense that you are monitored and very much subject to discipline. A sense of powerlessness is the inevitable result.”

      Based on Salam’s argument, banning curse words is akin to banning eye rolls and sighs. Workers need to vent somehow, and apparently a bad word now and then does the job for many people.

      Many companies have rules about what language should be avoided in written and verbal communications. In some companies, the list of forbidden words isn’t confined to expletives that would earn a “bleep” on TV. Employees at some companies are given broader guidelines that prevent any talk of a potentially controversial topic. Companies aren’t just worried about you offending a colleague; they’re worried about being held responsible for your profane words. If you’ll recall, discussing the sexually tinged  Junior Mint episode of “Seinfeld” led to one firing, which then snowballed into a multimillion-dollar lawsuit that gained national attention and a major headache for one employer. So employers are skittish about salty language for good reason.

      Consider that companies can prohibit their employees from posting negative comments on Facebook and Twitter. They don’t want a digital paper trail of bad behavior, and e-mails are no different.

      Are people making a big fuss over this because it’s Goldman Sachs and it’s an easy target? This story might not be newsworthy if it were a grade school instituting this policy on teachers, for example. It would likely be a noteworthy story if a construction company didn’t allow its crew to use expletives, I imagine.

      Is the controversy much ado about nothing to you because you don’t think profanity should ever be used in the workplace? Or can you make exceptions and let out a few unsavory words when things just get too stressful?

        Whats weird to me is we only cuss while or when we want to express an extreme emotion. What makes those words cuss words? What if we all reversed the words like say went to Taco Bell and ordered like this...

        Cashier: Yea, what the f**k do you want?
        Customer: I'll take a sh*tty taco, and a got damn burrito.
        Cashier: What the hell do you want to drink with it?
        Customer: I'll have a f**kin rootbeer with that.
        Cashier: Okay B**ch, thats going to be 5 bucks.
        Customer: You got change for a f**kin' 100?

        I just got an idea.. i wonder what would happen if i opened up a restaurant and named all the food and drinks after cuss words?
        Think anyone would come to my restaurant, order and eat? lol

          Hey Imagin,

          I can't even begin to tell ya how many times i have to bite my tongue....err fingers when typing!! I think it depends on where you work and the environment. If it is a construction crew then and it is all guys then i can't see the harm in it.

          It is the people around you more than anything i think. Where some swear every other word another person wouldn't say s**t if they had a mouth full! And as far as environment i think it's not only work, but places you are at.

          If i went to Mc Donalds and heard someone drop the F bomb in line it is not going to effect me as much as if i went to a nice steak house and the table next to me was dropping the F bomb. Also i am totally against swearing in front of small children at least the bad bad bad words!!

          I don't think there is an easy answer, all depends on the person, place and work environment.

          Lips

          What i found interesting in this is this...
          "Now your e-mails will be scanned and filtered by sophisticated software, heightening the sense that you are monitored and very much subject to discipline. A sense of powerlessness is the inevitable result.”

          and my question is who or what makes them bad words.. what if we yelled "banana" when we stubbed our toe, or someone/something makes you mad at work.. or made up a word like say.. "schzaballs" and always used it when we are stressed or upset or wowed by something, would that word eventually come up as a profanity/unsavored/bad word in our future?

            I never ******* swear.

            Seriously, I do swear but not as much as I used to when I worked in an office.  The stress of it all made me swear but the swearing did help.

              My f*****g company bans f*****g employees from even f******g listing them as a f*****g employer. F*****g co-workers have received f*****g calls from f*****g HR requiring them to f*****g remove the f*****g company name from their f*****g profile.

              I swear my a** off at work but I f*****g choose my audience. I know who the f**k I can be myself with.

              P.S.

              F*****g Imagin, that Taco Bell s**t is f*****g hilarious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
