What I've distilled from this interesting discussion on the use of obscenities (especially the remarks from authors about their own struggles with the issue) is:

Just because you can use dirty words doesn't mean you must use them.


Just because a lot of great authors didn't use them doesn't mean you must not use them.

I'm with Kevin and Mario on this -- they should be employed, or not, on a case-by-case basis, based on what is right for the specific character and situation, never just for their own sake.
