Recently the question has been raised about if (and to what extent) we should allow coarse language in our posts here on ELL. No one is trying to tamp down on free speech, and I know this has been brought up on MSO many times in the past. We're not really talking about the occasional curse word here and there, though, but questions which revolve around curse words. A recent example can be found here.
So the question is, are questions like this acceptable? My personal opinion is that, in general, if a question is asked in good faith and is well-researched and also happens to question the meaning of a curse word, it is acceptable (we certainly don't want learners to go around misusing inappropriate words!). However it isn't always easy to determine when a question is asked in good faith, and we also don't want to open ourselves up to people asking questions with gratuitous bad language to garner a reaction from the community.
So, we're not really sure which way we should lean on this one. My first instinct is that everything should be taken in moderation and a middle ground is appropriate, but we'd like to hear what the community thinks. (Perhaps, as Matt suggests in a comment on the example question, a higher threshold of research effort should be enforced on such questions to show good faith?). Please come share your opinions, we want the community to shape our policy on this.
