Is profanity necessary?

Is profanity really necessary? I mean, is there a reason to say something in a negative, mean way when you can say it with a positive connotation? There is no reason to cuss or use inappropriate language just to express strong emotion. If someone is frustrated, there is no need to say the "F" word if they can use words like "darn" or "shoot."

Thanks to Zaradi for agreeing to debate this with me for the semifinal round of the DDO tournament. Standard rules apply. No semantics, no new arguments in the last round, ect. As we're both experienced debaters I dont really think we need to worry about this coming down to a definitions or semantics war, but its always best to make sure. Round one is acceptance and I look forward to the debate....

Definitions: Humanity - Fairly obvious. Ought - a moral obligation to do something. Animals - Non-human creatures (excluding insects and such) Basic rights - Right to Life, right not to be treated inhumanly, etc. Besides what consitutes "basic rights", all the definitions are fairly obvious.
