 ABOUT CUSS WORD TABOOS
 In many countries and not just the United States, a person's word choices signal to the other people his or her
 competency (or trustworthiness) at recognizing the appropriate social cues and seriousness of the current situation.
 If a person chooses inappropriate language, then either that person can not be trusted to read the social cues or that
 person is intentionally violating them, which tells everyone else something about that person's character, competency
 and trustworthiness
 Cuss words are excellent for expressing emotion, most often rage or pain or unbridled excitement --but this makes
 them inappropriate when cool reason is what is required. This is why we look down upon people who choose to use
 cuss words instead of choosing to use reasoned and educated language.
 Cuss words are often used to express contempt, and this makes them inappropriate when sincere respect is what is
 required. This is why we look down upon people who cuss out good people
 The cuss word taboos also have a recent history to them in the United States. During the first part of the 20th century
 in America, cuss words were recruited for a sort of "class warfare" in which people who lacked the social resources or
 intelligence to learn all the social niceties would wield cuss words as a weapon to show contempt for polite society and
