Hello, I'm rather new. I noticed that it is a violation to use "excessive profanity" in one's hubs. To what extent does excessive profanity mean? And does that mean that all profanity should be kept PG (hell, damn, etc)? I'm not an excessive swearer, but I do occasionally use profanity in my writing, usually to exaggerate a point. I know that isn't exactly a good thing, but that's what I do.
I can't give you an exact count, but I'd just try to keep it down. One or two profane words certainly won't kill you, and if one of your Hubs is ever moderated for having too much profanity, all you'll have to do is remove some and it can be republished.
There are lots of funny things to say instead of precisely profane words, though. Perhaps this can turn into a challenge of creativity!
