I have a poem I'd like to post. It contains the stronger version of the word darned, but used in the biblical sense. As in so and so was darned to hell. Not the exact words, but you catch my meaning. I won't post it if it violates the no cursing policy. I understand that policy, and appreciate it, especially since there are some younger users on this site.
What is considered swearing? Are we talking just the hard curses or do I have to be wary of the not quite swear words of middle school?

My mother lumps in the words "shut up" and "stupid" in with cursing. Is there a list I can read so I don't step over the line?
