I remember thinking about this as a child in elementary school -- where you had to trust someone enough to swear in front of them, otherwise, they could be a threat to you via tattling.

Swearing indicates a level of intimacy, and intimacy indicates trustworthiness.

To lie, you have to inhibit telling the truth.

Cussing is dis-inhibited, though a person's natural "cuss level" depends on their culture and upbringing. In some cultures, every other word is f***/f***in'/f***'d. S***.

Still more dis-inhibited is making animal noises.

From the article:

TFA wrote:
In 1939, Clark Gable uttering the memorable line “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn” in the film Gone with the Wind, was enough to land the producers a $5,000 fine.


This might qualify for the "Best $5000 ever spent" award.

Also from the article:

TFA wrote:
The research found that those who used more profanity were also more likely to use language patterns that have been shown in previous research to be related to honesty, such as using pronouns like “I” and “me”


Pretty sure this means that the most honest thing a person can ever say is, "Fuck me! I'm fucked!"

Is that one long winded and self promoting guy still posting? Last I read /. was years ago and he was still going strong despite every comment in the chain ragging on him.

If you read the article, it's saying that cussing implies unfiltered speech, i.e. wearing your heart on your sleeve. I think that's different from honesty per se. Honesty--whether someone is cheating you in some way--is deeper. The article seems to say that cussing correlates with honest expression, that's all.

Honesty doesn't necessarily indicate accuracy.
