The use of the "c word". When is it okay? When is it not okay? Is there a better word, than the "c" word to describe reprehensible public figures calling for violence?

So, I made the mistake of calling the moose-lady from Alaska, the very naughty, and very harsh "c-word" in the thread about growing right wing violence
. Her troublesome irresponsible statement, and I must confess, my own deep loathing of the woman, caused me to get carried away. Ha!
So, when is the "c-word," okay to use? Is there ever a time when its usage, might be acceptable? Is there be an alternative that packs the same wallop? Can we call other mefites, the "c-word" in fun or jest, Such as: Hey Brandon Blatcher, you excellent "c-word" how's it hangin'?" Or should one avoid it at altogether, lest he mods unleash the fury of the DeleteHammer on ones comment. Who knows perhaps it wasn't even the "c-word" that caused my commentary to be deleted, in which case I hope the mods can clarify.
