If you've read the COMMUNITY RULES and you still have a question, please post it here.
I'll draw up a FAQ if it becomes necessary.

Why is the comm's name so SILLY????
When you let me write my dictionary on your breasts, you'll understand.
What are your rules for profanity?
In general, I'm not opposed to it -- though you should probably put a warning if your work contains a significant amount.
I think I'd only get annoyed by abundant use of racist/sexist/etc profanity in a work that shows no hint of the author's knowledge that these are bad things to say. Obviously this is more of a personal issue, and a story that discusses these themes intelligently might still include the offensive language; I think it'd have to be quite extreme before I spoke to the author about it. (Or if the author said it's a-okay to use such-and-such a racist/sexist/etc phrase, but that's a quite different matter.)
I hope this is not too vague. =/ I'll try to refine it if profanity ever becomes an issue, but hopefully a warning from the author will prevent readers from being surprised.
That helps thanks.
I had a short story I was considering posting that has a lot of swearing.
