Where may we find this de facto list of swear words?

Google defines crap as vulgar, and the Cambridge Dictionary (I don't have the OED on my phone) calls it offensive. The same terms are used for other 4 letter words I guess you'd rather we didn't use. I'd like to see which other words can actually be used as they're not swear words...

FWIW I agree with the majority, I think it's offensive and shouldn't be used if we're maintaining a "family friendly" policy.
I think we all have a pretty good idea of which words are vulgar within the UK  :o and using a dictionary is a good reference point. However we are not just a UK forum and that is where it becomes a little harder to be precise about what is unacceptable and what is not. For example, crap is no longer defined as being vulgar by the New Oxford American Dictionary and the Cambridge American dictionary states that it is UK offensive. Plus craps is a dice game - so it would be hard to allow craps but not crap. The best policy is to use the censored  :censored: smiley if one is not sure what is vulgar and what is not
