Instead of trying to find new ways around the language filters, or design new filters, may you should invest time in actually trying to express yourself in a way that doesn't rely on negatively charged language to bludgeon a point across. I've always thought that people who curse excessively are simply trying to make up for the fact that they don't have much else of value to say.

Japanese sign language means bro or sister, I can't remember which one. Ok someone means snow, it didn't say snow it, read English, depend on know-how, when someone meant wrong. Now you get a woman, if she says snow by know snow like secret language, if you're brainy lol

sorry, i'm not a bland person. i understand the benefits of being bland in the working and/or intellectually speaking world(which means next to nothing, since intellectuals aren't bothering to fix the problems in this world, but rather exploit others using their intelligence), but i also understand that it doesn't entertain me or others by being bland. besides the fact, that i am filled to the brim with emotion(i'm in a glass cage, lol), and using more colorful language is the only true way of expressing myself adequately. i have whole oceans of feeling that prevent me from being entirely calm/composed/submissive. no, i would need mood stabilizers(read: zombie meds that are used on the working class at large to KEEP them calm and submissive), in order to be calm/composed/submissive.

what i've found, is that most old people don't like swear words. and, old people are absolutely BORING. not to mention, they're largely the reason why life in society sucks as much as it does. because of their failures and wrongdoings, the young are constantly made to deal with what hasn't been fixed; or even worsened.

no, i like my language, because mostly, it directly reflects the negativity i am forced to deal with from the outside world(read: the old-and-crusty people's world). i'll keep it within the coc here and in the workplace, of course. i'm not without sense by any means; or even without care. as much as i'd like to be. i understand that, to have harmony, one must follow inane and counterproductive rules.

of course, i'm talking about actual swearing and why i do it here; not about childish words like "poop". because of the kindergarten environment here, we cannot even express reality in the way it SHOULD be expressed. and that is, with high degrees of negative emotion.

Profanity is like seasoning on food, some food is better off without it, you don't put every herb on every dish and if you overdo it, it will defeat its purpose and ruin the taste. If you know what you're doing though, it has the potential to create delicious variety.

oh, absolutely. i'm not saying that using the f-bomb in every other word is essential; far from it. one of my cousins does that, and it's annoying and infantile. i used to do that when i first started cursing back in my preteens, lol. but back then it wasn't about emotion or as a reaction; it was just about being a bad boy. back then, cursing was the only drug i could get my hands on.

I think in pre-teens, early-teens, you enjoy to curse constantly simply because it makes you feel more grown up. You're in your "Hey, I'm not a kid anymore, got that!" period (oh, the  sweet, stupid cluelesness) and cursing is part of that rite of passage.

If you are looking for an interesting read about what the origins of profanity are, why we use it, and what it says about how we think, check out chapter 7 of Stephen Pinker's The Stuff of Thought - "The Seven Words you Can't Say on Television".

The book is worth it for that chapter alone.
