    diarist around here for many reasons. I think very highly of you and just wish you would use LESS.

    As an older person I have only gotten used to the language of some diarists here over years of having to if I wanted to stay. But am never comfortable with it truly. I can take the F words, but the C word just drives me crazy--to find it here. To me it objectifies women in the worst way. I can't stand it that you used it and stopped reading when I saw that. Also Mfer is too much for me. That's what you get with a sheltered life. But I am not sure I'm all that unusual for my age group.

    I've long suspected that with younger people, the more a diarist uses these words the more popular they will be. Sometime I want to try an experiment with similar diaries that have them and that omit them.

      I really will. I'll try to cut down. It really serves no purpose, except for rants and every single diary cannot be a true rant.

      It rubs the loofah on its skin or else it gets the falafel again.

      •  Thanks, good to hear. I hate people to limit (0+ / 0-)

        self-expression, but here it is a dialogue so it seems appropriate to have some limits. You are just a great diarist and impart excellent information, and I trust you. Can't get much better than that.
