Some bollocks being spouted by both sides of this debate.

The point of language is to make yourself understood - otherwise, grunt away.

By definition, friends have a mutual rapport that strangers don't have. The language used by friends isn't any indication of how to communicate in other settings, therefore it's irrelevant to this discussion.

If you want to test the "any word goes" theory, try going to Coldharbour Lane in Brixton and dropping the phrase "scum sucking negro" into a conversation with a black guy who you've just met. Then come back and tell us about it.
