Default Please vote again - profanity or not?

I'm re-doing this to include the compromise option.

I think the compromise looks unprofessional, and swearing should be allowed, if necessary. Having stupid quotes that swear is unnecessary.

I agree with YNH, I think a disclaimer would be the best COA.

We should, however, try to avoid swearing on talk pages, though.

So, it looks like the majority are in favor of retaining the profanity.

When I found out who's been viewing the site (and there have been some pretty important people in the business who have seen us), I have to admit that I did a 180 on this issue.
