Uhm, I'm unclear on whether you're "language" blame is being placed on
the IRCC, myself, or both... but I feel compelled to point out that
I really don't have a problem using words that can be considered
"swearwords" in contexts where they're not explicitly disallowed, and
that is in fact a good example of the "substance over form" problem I
mentioned in the posted logs.

I felt offended and insulted by some of the content that was being
directed at me, but I really had no problem with the language forms
the IRCC used, and while I am aware I used some "four-letter words"
myself, in this case I really fail to see how that matters... at all.

This may be just a misunderstanding, but for clarity, can we agree that
it is, or should be, much more important, and in the spirit of the CoC
(which doesn't directly talk about "language", anyway, I believe) to
be considerate of others at a much deeper level than the language
register one chooses as appropriate to the circumstances?
