Can confirm that I've used the phrase "next level shit" at my GDC
Certainly what's considered professional in my industry (an
entertainment industry) doesn't fly with classic white-collar IT.
(TIL that it's now classified gold-collar. Whatevs.)
Swears are fine where I'm from. Using swears to demean or insult
someone doesn't matter, you're still being demeaning and
insulting ie a dick. Don't be a dick.
Of course, I don't mind keeping it white-collar when I post here.
I swear a lot in person, use blue-ish humour to get a point
across. But on a forum, I have the luxury of time to think about
how to say something in a clean manner.
