Sorry, when you said "Why should there even be a blame game for this?", I tough you were talking about the characters of the series playing a "blame game", not about us viewers!

All else aside, I disagree with that last part. There's beauty in simplicity.

With all due respect, I find that the use of curse words, while carrying a lot of impact, are a crude and unintelligent way of speaking. I don't mean that people who use them are stupid; what I mean is that there is always a better word for whatever you are labeling somebody as.

Specifically, the curse words may express your general feelings about someone, but carry no meaning that explains those feelings. In isolation, they are therefore of very limited use.

But it doesn't carry the emotional punch of that one word. Plus it's way more tedious to type out than a single word that sums up all of that raw emotion, like CJD said, there's beauty in simplicity. The C-word isn't a beautiful word when put into a negative connotation, it's a powerful reactionary word which can be used to express extreme contempt (which is how I used it), BUT.....it can be given any sort of connotation one wants under the right circumstances, and THAT'S the beauty of language: It's flexibility in different emotional situations. You CAN use the C-word in a more positive light or connotation...it's just that the majority of it's use unfortunately is linked with negativity. It's WAY more linked with negativity than it's closest simile: "pussy". For example, you can call someone a pussy and have it mean that they're a coward OR a woman/man can use it as a positive term of endearment for a woman's genitalia etc, etc. It IS possible to do the same thing with "The C-Word" but unfortunately, again, it's WAY more linked with negativity than "pussy" is. Like I said before, if there's ONE WORD that carries the same emotional punch as "The C-Word" that is less inflammatory....point me to it, but then maybe it has to be inflammatory in order for it to have the proper impact.

I'm just trying to explain this as logically and as Carlin-esque as I possible can without trying to offend anyone. If I have, then my apologies.
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

Raw emotion? I think it's a word that anybody can dole out, regardless of what emotional state they're in.

But I digress. Topic?
