    Re: How the word f*ck has become important

    Yes, and it often replaces the full stop. What a shame!

    I think a person who doesn´t use such word is almost a saint.

    All the people in Germany are Saints. They haven't got such a word.
    And if English speakers use this word instead of fullstop, here in Russia they say it three-four times in one sentence. I mean not f*ck, but its Russian translation. What's interesting,not only men but also women use it.

    And here in the Philippines children as young as 4-5 years old say the word f*ck. Well, some of them especially the ones who live in the slum areas.

    if they're using it 3-4 times in one sentence then they're mispunctuating their sentences. Better teach them a little of grammar Harry!

    That's because they think that saying it makes them look cool.

    Unfortunately I don't teach Russian. I myself used that word when I was a kid.
