Okay, here's a question for my readers (loyal and, uh, anyone who happens to drop by *dry grin*):

Would you keep reading if I switched from a strict G rating on language to a loose R (i.e. dropping f-bombs and so forth whenever I go on a rant like yesterday's about Vaino)?

See, I feel like I can't be as scathing as I want in a G rating; I suspect this would be a much more entertaining blog, of the sort I'd like to read, if I didn't have to censor myself every time a Newbery book descended into the truly bad. But I don't want to make a major change like that without asking y'all whether you'd mind.

So. I'd put up a poll, but I don't have a paid Dreamwidth account. Please answer in comments (you can say as little as "yes" or "no", but I'd really appreciate hearing from all you lurkers who never comment, if you have any opinion):

"Would you keep reading if I switch from G-rated to R-rated language in my posts here?"

(Anon commenting is on. Anon comments will be screened, but if you're not an obvious spammer/troll I'll happily unscreen.)

Absolutely I'd keep reading!

I just discovered you and subscribed, so this is my first comment, but I wouldn't mind at all. From what I read, I don't think (or at least I hope for your sake!) all entries will deserve rants, in any case.

I'd definitely keep reading. Sometimes swearing is entertaining.

I don't mind swearing.

(Now I'm curious what the Vaino rant was. It's currently the seventh long-post* in line, but I think I'll skip ahead.)

*When going through my RSS feeds I read the short posts first, hence why I'm here now.

I gather you've already decided, but for the record I have no objection to strong language when the situation calls for it.
