    I like Monalibean [Monalisa that has the face of Mr. Bean]. Back to the topic, a lot of my officemates are using the big ¨F¨.

    Please explain how words can be "good" or "bad." Words are air molecules vibrating, drops of ink on paper, hand gestures, or electrons bouncing off a screen. They can have no intrinsic goodness or evil. I think that the belief in things like magic incantations is the exclusive realm of the uneducated and superstitious.

    I could write every profanity I could think of (and that's a lot!) in this space and neither I nor anyone else would be harmed by it. Why is it that the word fuck is proof of low class when it is used by a kid in the slums of Manila or Brooklyn, but when it is used by writers like Alan Ginsburg or J.D. Salinger it becomes an essential element of great literature?

    I don´t know, I think it comes bad by how you use the word ¨fuck¨. When you use it just by annoying people it becomes bad, especially when you are shouting the word. When you use it to express your deeper feelings, that the person feels that you really mean what you say, I think then it can be termed as ¨acceptable¨ but not a really good word. Good and bad words are categorized by people with different standards.
