Sweary acronyms... WTF??

So I'm just putting something out there with this post. How 'acceptable' do you think it is to publish - be it an online publication or in a social media post - an acronym which uses swear words?

Let me give you an example:

Now let me be clear. There's absolutely no disrespect to Sophy Ridge here, who I think is an excellent journalist.

I'm just thinking... she, or any other journalist, probably wouldn't write the words "what the f**k" in print... but does it become 'acceptable' when it's written as an acronym?

Same with FFS.  Is this just the world we live in now?

Here's another example I spotted a few weeks ago:

Would be interested in your f**king thoughts ;)
