There are two things to mention here.

The first is that the occasional usage (like swearing) wasn't a problem, but it became a problem when parents began to feel that they were being ganged-up on. There's a thread on Fratching about people without children being harassed by those who have with the intent of getting them to produce offspring, but we were seeing the inverse happening here. We had to step in. A bit of venting once in a while was fine, but it got too much. Quite a number of people here are parents - please don't forget your fellow poster.

The second is that if something's making you feel uncomfortable culturally, let us know via PM or report. We won't always act, since it depends on how we think the culture shift on the board is going, but we'll always listen.
