Cussing- Downed by many religions, but does an atheist thinker think the same?

Personally I cuss all the time, really can't help it. Just want peoples thoughts on it, does it make you sound stupid? Some times is it actually a good enhancing word to your statement or question? It is considered a sin to many religious people, but here, where we are clear headed thinkers, does it seem like a morally wrong thing to do?

                 P.S. it's my first post, stupid thing to ask? If so please say so, over time I'll judge whether or not i should shut up or not on this site.

So this guy points his finger in my face and says "Don't take it so fucking personally, dickhead!".

...and you replied, "Richard Cranium, please!"?

That's a good question. Definitely worth asking. I find swearing (cussing) particularly effective with certain types of people. You can usually tell which people will freak out if you swear gratuitously, and which people will just take the swearing as emphasis points.

The downside to using swear words often with one group of people is that you tend to continue using them when with the other group of people.

Watch some George Carlin vids.  The man was brilliant and cussed like a sailor.

Personally, I can't understand why anyone finds it objectionable. I just can't wrap my head around it. It's the most ridiculous of taboos in our culture.
