But "Scheiße" is a pretty tame swear word. People say it all the time, even some of my teachers and professors. I believe swear words are a valid expression of emotions. That's why I think censoring them is silly.

I agree with you but I noticed that there are mentality differences in general between Germans and the British. In my daughter`s school teachers most definitely don`t like any form of swearing and therefore I have to keep reminding her to be careful with her language especially at school.
