I'm sure slashdot will be happy to follow up, seeing as how this heated
discussion just made headlines there.

Personally I *like* when abusive language is used, assuming it's used
appropriately. I *hate very much* when people are nice to me and let
their frustrations grow, only to ambush me later with a string of curses
and lashings in one fell swoop. Not only does "holding it in" set me up
for failure becuase I remain ignorant, I also feel downright betrayed
when they come off as vindictive bastards that saved their beefs until
the moment was ripe to do the most damage. It doesn't just make me lose
respect for them, it makes me lose trust.

Give me an honest asshole over a silver tongued backstabber any day.
