I found a huge gaping hole in the utility of Thesaurus.com (and all the other online thesaurus providers).
There’s no profane words in their databases. One of the primary uses for a thesaurus (at least in my head) is saying to yourself “I want to say “blow smoke up your ass, but in a nice way” or “I want to say ‘hey I’m not bullshitting you’ but I need a nicer word than ‘bullshitting’ for this crowd.”
So for all you startup developers, or wannabe startups, please build me this profanity-to-nicer-word application, you’ll get lots of traffic by people that want to sound better, more educated, and more sophisticated than they actually are.
Oh, and it’d be really fucking cool if you did.
