How old is this phenomenon, and is it another feature of The Sign of the End? At the risk of dating myself, I remember when ``suck'' was never used in civil company, as it was considered a filthy word, a euphemism for fellatio. Today, I find that I react viscerally to its wide use, and must admit to still finding it crass and offensive, although that admission likely places me at the margin rather than in the mainstream of contemporary society. What say you?
(Apologies for this, my first, and probably my only, foray in the esoteric world of ``fluff'')
