Interesting use of language in feed description May 22, 2004 4:05 PM   Subscribe

Interesting use of language in feed description. Well yes I laughed and went straight to the article for an explaination. It is a great link. I have no problem with the use of colourful language under normal circumstances and I don't want to sound like a prude, but I was just worried about site image. Also aren't there going to be issues in some workplaces with filters and that sort of thing?

... or is my oncoming common cold making me touchy?

I'v ealways gone under the rule of no swearing in the post itself, threads whatever. I think with the advent of widespread use of RSS readers the title field is becoming more useful, and should probably be treated with a little more care by posters. This includes making them more descriptive.

On the other hand, this was hilarious.

Workplaces with filters are going to tag cussing in comments, so that point is moot. I doubt cussing in a title is going to lessen site image any more than the usual cussing.

"who will think of the sites image!", he asks ROFLy.
