I don't fully agree Andrew's point.
But Eric and other Seattle people should consider that the patch includes only the code made by Seattle people.

And I don't agree Eric's argument; "fuck" makes code more readable.
If you want to use such word, that is because your code is ugly.

Bug #5625: Remove profanity and pejoratives
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5625

Author: Andrew Grimm
Status: Third Party's Issue
Priority: Normal
Assignee: Eric Hodel
Category: 
Target version: 
ruby -v: F**king external libraries


There are currently 6 lines with the f-word, 4 lines with "wtf" that weren't just random combinations of letters, and one line with "bullshit". 

While I personally dislike such profanity, the main benefit from getting rid of it is that it'd mean people of all ages could read Ruby's source code.

There's also three lines where "lame" is used as a pejorative. Using a group of people as a pejorative should be avoided.
