Well, since you responded to my post (and not commenting on what a
workflow with 397x10^16 managerial cooks is like) <g>:

I write software documentation. I try not to put anything offensive
after the full stop/period. For example, anything that would get bleeped
off the radio or T.V./telly (plus others) here in conservative, good old
USA. I can probably categorize these words as those you would not use in
church, usually slang and/or pertaining to sex, violence, and bodily
functions, and often heard in a George Carlin comedy routine.

Other than that, I play fast and loose with the alleged rules of
grammar, but in a consistent way.

Cheers,

Sean
