Well there are some subjects that are somewhat taboo. A lot of times that''s a product of parents overprotective of their children, has to do with this puritan ethic that America has always had lingering on the surface.
However if you're talking specifically about here, well, there's a certain breed of artist who thinks that swear words and risque topics scare away customers. I personally have never believed that myself, but for instance,when the pipeline used to be on the front page here, we would constantly get complaints from the same people every time Larree said Fuck. There are also people who used to come out of the woodwork every time Holo Lukaloa posted a political opinion and complain that the posts were too abrasive for them to have to look at, and that's why we have a political forum.
When i first came onto the web, the amount of men and women who posted on the forums were about equal but as trolling and fighting got more prominent, most women just left the forums. I wish more women still posted so I suppose that's at least one good reason why loudness should be tempered though i innately prefer a total free speech environment minus racial and ethnic slurs of any kind.
