Could it be?



Bad feelings make you curse. Way too much foul language on the Internet. And most parents seem reluctant to teach their children to curse.

Or am I missing the whole point of this riddle?

  • $\begingroup$ Cursing is not the word I searched, though the one I described... Therefore technically it's correct :) This was too easy... If you get the word I searched I mark the answer as correct. $\endgroup$ – Tobias Peter May 22 '15 at 12:27

    $\begingroup$ Btw "swear" is also a noun (not only a verb). It's short for swear-word. Vulgarity? $\endgroup$ – dmg May 22 '15 at 12:35
