The law banning swearing on social networks officially came into force today. Its essence is quite simple if a person has spoken obscenely in front of everyone, then the owners of the social network must respond and remove this content, otherwise, they may face legal proceedings. The law says that it is forbidden to swear on certain topics, but we all remember the same Twitch and bans for any reason, so you can expect anything you want.

So how can it be, can turn to the origins and ask the question: “What kind of devil is going on or what kind of f&*$?” Initially, the progenitor of the word profanity is the word mother or a short form of the expression “send to mother”.

There is a theory that obscene words are part of erotic pagan rites or that sowing sayings had a double meaning, but over time, only one (negative) remained. In general, there is no confirmed history of the origin of profanity, and the harmful or beneficial use of swear words has its positive properties. It’s up to you to decide, but don’t overuse your vocabulary, but save it for the right moment.
