I personally don't think specific words should be banned from books. Sometimes words that are profane are necessary in a situation (For instance, if you are writing about  a dysfunctional family in contemporary times, you wouldn't really be using polite words.) and when that is executed tastefully, there's nothing really wrong with it. However, that doesn't mean every other word should be profane.

The word that annoys me: dazzle/dazzled/dazzling or any other variation thereof. In a short amount of time, I've grown to dislike the words so much that I will put the book down if the book has the aforementioned word in it.
 
Of course, books about dysfunctional families, gang violence, etc could use profane words to get the meaning across, but I meant I don't believe in profance words being used in all kinds of books, even normal ones. I've seen lots of books about normal High School life where people use swear words as if they were normal. That just irks me beyond anything.

No offence...don't take this the wrong way but you know that's true, right? I live in Canada and, while it's annoying, people use swear words too often and it's a bit TOO real in some books...you know?
I, myself, don't appreciate the words but you know that it's more real if they DO use them...
There are a lot of books that don't and they're ususally the "happy-go-lucky" type that I personally love...haha.
There are also books like "Go Ask Alice" that would be incomplete without the profanity...
So, I guess I do agree with you...I think we need to understand the message behind why the words are used.
Take care! Smile

if you mean swear words then i don't really have a problem with them, i mean they're clearly harmless... but yeah overused words can be annoying, it's better to keep the readers intrigued by new use of vocabulary.
