Case in point: https://m.erwaysoftware.com/posts/by-url?url=//stackoverflow.com/a/45460636
Some (non-native) speakers think f*cking is a synonym for very. Smokey reports them, we edit out the rude language and leave a comment.

What feedback is appropriate in this case?

Arguments for tpu-:

  • It's rude, and rude is synonymous to tpu-

Arguments for tp-:

  • Doesn't blacklist the user.
  • Like vandalism, this is something the community can resolve.

Arguments for fp- (or naa- when appropriate):

  • Doesn't blacklist the user.
  • The post itself is (potentially) valuable so we don't want it as a system block.

I was (when this case was posted) in the fp- camp, but I'm slowly leaning towards tp- now. Whatever the outcome, it's good to add this case to the Feedback Guidance wiki page.

The post itself is (potentially) valuable so we don't want it as a system block.

In my opinion, that's the test. We wouldn't want to implement a system-level block against this, so it's an FP.

Adding to Art's answer, these aren't even flaggable. We (I, at least) decline red flags on bad language used within an otherwise good post - with the reasoning that all we'll do is edit it out, so you should just do it yourself.

Well, the system block could be a warning like 'Your post contains offensive language, are you sure you want to post it?'. But if you both think it's fp-, that probably defines policy on this matter and I will update the wiki.
