Page move[change source]

I don't think this page should have been moved from Profanity to Vulgarism. Vulgarism does not equate to profanity. Profanity can be vulgar, but the vice versa does not apply. Nishkid64 (talk) 20:17, 4 June 2007 (UTC)

"Profanity is using a rude word"[change source]

Calling someone "stupid" is rude, but the word "stupid" is not profanity. Panda Bear | Talk | Changes 01:38, 21 August 2007 (UTC)

Profanity is a curse or an oath, but "stupid, fat, idiot" are all insults rather than curses.

Profanity really isn't vulgar. From a young age, I never have understood that. if it is, then shouldn't words like 'Piss' and 'puke' count as profanity ? LIAM !

They are considered mild profanity in some places, as is "crap". (And does anyone else see the irony in the "cleanup" tag, on a page about this topic?) Zephyrad 23:17, 24 August 2007 (UTC)

Cleaning up[change source]

Hello, I just created the article on obscenity, blasphemy also exists. I see a few items of improvement:

  • Get rid of the listing, as it is not encyclopedic.
  • Do not explain blasphemy here, but do it it in the blasphemy article. When doing so, try to not focus on a Christian viewpoint too much.
  • Same thing for obscenity; it has its own article.

I will therefore place {{cleanup}} on the article. --Eptalon (talk) 11:19, 12 December 2009 (UTC)

Re: "unencyclopedic"[change source]

I disagree... and it took how many years to come to the conclusion that they were? Zephyrad (talk) 04:04, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

Look at this article in other languages; neither English, nor Spanish, nor German have a listing of "common examples". Besides, when you revert another editor, please do so to the "last known good version". Since we have articles on blasphemy and obscenity I had adapted this article to reflect that, before removing what I considered to be the unencyclopedic part. And yes, I am well aware that this article needs a lot of work. --Eptalon (talk) 11:15, 13 December 2009 (UTC)

Realistically, does this image really add much to the article? Kansan (talk) 21:06, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Question[change source]

What does filthy language mean? Brandon5015 (talk) 05:32, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

@Brandon5015: It's usually a synonym for profanity. By the way, you usually won't get answers by leaving messages on article talk pages like this because most people won't see your question. Asking at WP:Simple talk is more likely to get you an answer. --Auntof6 (talk) 06:12, 17 September 2018 (UTC)

You really do not know that. Brandon5015 (talk) 12:01, 26 November 2018
