Why do you think the worst insults are always about having sexual intercourse with your relatives?
Why is this particularly insulting?
I saw a flame war online, where one person kept retaliating to another person's attacks in the following fashion: And I porked your mother last night. It was magical.
And the swear word "motherfucker" i.e fucking one's mom, gets used a lot. What are your thoughts on all of this?
Maybe it's because most people find the example in their particular case to be utterly revolting. For many of us, however, convenience is far from the best part.
Among all Earth cultures, it is considered a particularly vile insult to slander the reputation of another's mother.
Please add this to the compendium of information you're beaming back to your home planet.

Think about the term motherfucker in terms of the Black experience in this country 400 years ago.
I don't care when people call me that, because it's true. Mom's a babe.
I got nothing. Sorry.
DId your dad's cum taste like your own, OP? Not to be insulting. Just trying to gather data for your diagnosis.
Now, I like that one. Will employ.
OP are you ok pet? Is the answer not obvious?
Picture your mother having sex, picture her having sex with your best friend. Now picture her enjoying it.
Grossed out yet?
To disparage someone's mom, who usually has nothing to do with the discussion at hand, is disrespectful but it's also just plain icky. That's why it's an insult.
Do you need any other basic human interactions explained?
"Grossed out yet?"
Why would anyone take that as an insult?
I don't understand the point of your motherfucking question.
I remember an anthropology class where the professor told us that every society has an incest taboo. The nature of the taboo will differ (some allow/encourage siblings to marry; most don't) but there is always some kind of prohibition of some kind of intrafamilial sex.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
