I am wondering what the rules are exactly, not because I use such words a lot but because I am thinking of doing a hub on famous people I have met and how they didn't or did turn out as I'd imagined. Captain Beefheart and Marc Bolan were two music ' heros' of mine I met but I didn't end up having a pleasant conversation with and both used 4-letter words in what they had to say to me. Bolan used the F-word and Beefheart used the word beginning with C and ending with T. Is it OK for me to write hubs using these words or would it be classed as offensive?
Honestly, I don't know, but you could write them like this c**t or F**k. I don't think doing so would be detrimental to your writing. You'd still get the full flavor of the quotes without violating and Hub policy.
I forget the main purpose of your asking and now I am searching answers to this Riddle/Puzzle etc...Where/How will I get the answers I don't know..
I am sure it would be fine. Especially as it is in the cause of historical accuracy.
You met Marc Bolan huh? He was a hero of mine as a kid. He died before I had a chance to meet him, but "Ride a White Swan," was my first album.
Most of the famous people I have met have been the same. lol Yul Brinner was a C***
Sparingly, and in context, it's permitted.
Of course, I've always maintained that "diet" is a four-letter word, and I myself use it regularly in hubs.
Thanks for all your replies Poppa, Mark, Maddie and fun2hub!
You have answered my question!

Hi there, I was going to write a funny double-act that will be coming in series in different hubs and there might be use of words that are naturally spoken but not in use when written. Do you normally use any words that you like, or you limit yourself using only polite words?
