If you search for "motherf--ing website" you also have many examples of a very simple but readable website. (I hate the edgy language though.)

I understand where you're coming from, but I do think it serves an important purpose here.

The language is chosen to underscore the message and ensure virality. The goal was to get the point in front of as many people as possible, and it did that quite well IMO.

I'm not sure that message could have spread as far and wide as it did without that language. Perhaps if FAANG pushed it...
