In Why weren't the shields up already?, the question text contains the phrase "shit just got real".
Now, I'm not offended by this at all, but it was my understanding that our position was essentially "don't put anything that might have a chance of offending anyone unless there's a reason for it".
I.e., in Is profanity in direct quotes from source material permitted?, we establish that we don't avoid profanity in quoted materials (because we're all adults and that would be silly). The accepted answer there sort of addresses this issue (I think it should be okay to say "this is bullshit"), but it's not clear to me that the acceptance of that answer really conveys consensus on that part of the answer since it's a minor part of the whole.
So what's the consensus on mild but unnecessary expressions which might offend some people but not most.
Do we have such a policy?
