The whole blurring thing for me is just hysterical. I love it and I love doing it. I think we are catering for the most delicate 2% of the population here, and 98% just get on with swear words like it’s just a means of expression.
I had this argument with my father in law a long time ago. A swear word is just a word. It is the receiver that interprets good or bad or ugly meaning in the word. So, it’s not the sender that is actually swearing, it is the sensitive receiver that is actually swearing in their interpretation of the word their brain.
I think I am right. But my FIL’s point was that that was all just meaningless mumbo jumbo, and the effect was something you don’t want ie someone being upset. Therefore, don’t do it if there is a risk that the receiver could be upset. I think this is what the blurring is all about.
But I am with you: who doesn’t want to know what the word is underneath the blur??
