Fifteen-year-old McKay Hatch should be celebrated. Tired of hearing profanities, he started the No Cussing Club. The club is over 20,000 strong. Not every admires Hatch for efforts. In fact threats and pizza deliveries started showing up at his parents South Pasadena, California home.
The Hatch's deal constantly with false deliveries and pornographic material arriving at their home, but they didn't order any of it. McKay's e-mail box runs full of profanity-laced hate e-mails. The family's phone rings constantly with prank calls.
The situation reached a peak recently, when an anonymous caller told McKay they were standing in front of their house and were about to kill his family. Detectives are looking into the calls and e-mail and are working to make arrests.
McKay has something that many politicians lack--a backbone. No matter how bad it's gotten, he has continued to grow the club. At the end of the month, he has his first no cussing book coming out, and continues to grow the organization on the Web.
I think it is great! Nothing irks me more then listening to a bunch of 15 year old punks in halo that sound like they where raise in a sewer. This is one of the main reasons I don't play with the general public anymore.
agreed, people on Halo 3 are the worst. Ive hardly ever been online with it due to the immature fanbase. I enjoyed the games but COD4 has a much more mature following (from my months of online experience). Anyway, things like this deserve support.
I don't really have any room to talk, I have a bad mouth. One of my bad vices. The only time I think someone should wisely pick which words they use is in the presence of children. Trust me though, I've had some mess ups in my time lol.

It just seems that people band together and rebel against whatever they can, nowadays. It's quite annoying, and completely irrelevant. I understand the motives behind it, but there's just no way you can live in a world without swearing. Sure it can be overused, but it also helps aleviate your emotions. It sounds stupid, but it is a successful way of getting out your anger, or sadness, instead of punching the lights out of someone, breaking some furnature, or turning to smoking.
People should put their energies into something more beneficial towards the planet, rather than being selfish bastards trying to change things that will make themselves, personally, feel better.
