Mister_Man
Mr.Grace

This came to my mind after finding it is against the terms of service to use profane language on this site. - Does this really matter? I do not imply insults. Insults and profanity or swear words are completely different things. The Wikipedia definition [1] is what I will use. If you do not like that definition, please provide your own. My argument is that the use of profane language should not only not offend someone if it is not used in the form of an insult, but it should not take a...

Slang is a symptom of decadence

tpmassive

My argument is that slang is a sign that moral as well as ethical values are being lost. This can be observed by the way in which some slang words have been incorporated into the English language. Preference of slang words to conventional and formal words is also evidence of my stance. Furthermore, the way in which some slang words, most of which can be found on the urban dictionary website, are linked to sensual and rather vulgar phenomena shows that the unmoral and the immoral have teamed up t...

I will be arguing in FAVOR of the whale hunt in Norway. To start off, the minke whales that are targeted by the hunt are NOT endangered. [1] Secondly, the kill is generally very humane, with 80% of whales dying instantly. [2] Thirdly, whaling is important to fishermen in remote villages, who have not much income from fishing in the spring and summer, because the cod are away for this time. [3] And lastly, minke whale meat is not as mercury-laced as people like to think, because they eat mainly p...
