1 Echosonic 3 years ago I know a lot of people cuss and when I hear people cussing it makes me not wanting too. I used to when I was a kid but as I got older I just thought that it was totally overrated. Is the word "hell" a cuss word or a place for the damned or both? People say that word way too much, so I say "heck" instead. I think I don't cuss because another reason is when I stopped I eventually stopped losing my temper and became more even tempered and relaxed.Then there are the other four letter words. I pretty much keep a clean lexicon these days. Do you guys think that foul language is overrated and that some words such as "hell" are way overused?
