Can someone explain to me why the Amazon suite of smart home devices won't say swear words? I don't understand the purpose of that random level of censorship.

@oneoddfrog because people tend to get more offended about swear words than they do war and violence? 🙃

@dzuk I feel like at least I should get to choose, right?

@dzuk @oneoddfrog in college, we had a speaker introduce a topic like “there are fucking millions of people living in poverty around the world… and you’re sitting here more offended that I just swore at you.”

@b @dzuk a well place swear word can be such wonderful emphasis. Maybe I just love swearing so much that I forgot to be offended.

I've just never seen the point.
