Windows 7: Language levels

Language levels

I don't want to sound too much like an old fogey but I do find the occasional bit of bad language offensive. An example is here:

Post no 32.
Am I being ultra sensitive?

Yeah, I think you are a bit too sensitive. This is apparently a young man and their language is that way. At my age, I have seen it all and do not get all upset about a little deviation from the norm as long as it does not become a personal attack.

I don't think you're sounding like an old fogey, It would be nice if people used less colorful language but I think it's just common vocabulary for alot of people these days.

Well, the post you linked does reveal a streak of intolerance, probably arising from ignorance and lack of actual hands on experience of using XP. In fact, its a very bookish kind of post. And yes, the language did make me squirm.

But the Poster will learn and hopefully enlighten himself. I hope this forum will help him do so.

I agree there. 99.9% are fine as this Forum proves but it only takes one to start a war but a million to finish it. Now I am sounding old so will shut up before someone tells me to. Very politely, of course
