YES! This is the old question of the difference between the actual word and
the inference of the meaning of a word. I am with you Mike. Use the word if
that's what you want to say in your writng. If you use a *f--k* then you
probably could have used another word altogether. This has nothing to do
with inhibitions or a blue-collar rearing, it has to do with what you want
the audience to retrieve from your writing.
