Yes. In three ways:

- I have magic mind-powers, and cursing releases them, and makes
kernel developers behave better. I'm not very strong in my
mind-powers, so only weak-willed individuals are noticeably affected -
and we really don't have a lot of those - but hey, every little bit
helps.

- It turns off small-minded people who care more about tone than
substance, and means that I can get rid of the whiners.

- it is a signal for people who have some sense that I'm getting
irritated, and reminds them about how I pay them the big bucks and
makes them behave.

In addition, it turns out that it affects not just other people, but
the person cursing too: there has also been scientific studies that
cursing relieves stress and actually relieves pain, and is not the bad
thing that the PC crowd thinks it is. It turns out that all societies
have cursing, and it really has an impact.

Seriously, I'm not just making that sh*t up. Google it.
