I think one of the best things I've heard about fiction is this: "Fiction is creating realistic characters, putting them in unrealistic situations, and seeing how they would react realistically."
Wish I could remember who said that.
In any case, what I would take from it is this. Think about who your characters are and what situation they're in. If it feels right that they would swear, have them swear. If not, then don't.
But I wouldn't worry about what's come before.

Forum Logic dictates that if the devs don't do what a poster wants, they therefor actively hate what that poster is advocating for.
Forum Logic =/= Real Logic
