Mind your language

November 18, 2005

Is it really necessary to use the coarse and gutter language found in one of your news stories ("Know your 'arse' from your 'hello'", November 11)? I thought The Times Higher was a quality newspaper. Is it necessary to gratuitously offend your readers?

Should you not be concerned with raising standards instead of seeking the lowest denominator in public and in private life?
