Is swearing bad?

The use of language is something I find really interesting. In particular I find it interesting how what some people find acceptable, and even great use of language, can be considered offensive by others. The so-called “seven dirty words” (see this Wikipedia article if the reference is unfamiliar) were considered unusable on television just a few years ago but are commonplace, at least on Australian TV, after 9.30PM.

This clip by the brilliant Stephen Fry is a case in point.

Have a great weekend.
