I'd say the "go away" translation rather corresponds to fuck off than fuck you. Paul Willocx 20:50, 22 May 2006 (UTC)

"go away" is good for U.S. English. I don’t know about BrE. —Stephen 22:55, 22 May 2006 (UTC)
Any chance of a citation? Kappa 23:27, 22 May 2006 (UTC)
I seriously doubt it. It’s just common usage in speech, but almost unheard of in writing. If someone asks me for something that he shouldn’t be asking about, I might reply "fuck you," meaning "go away, you idiot." If someone made the request in writing, then I would not use this term. —Stephen 23:33, 22 May 2006 (UTC)
Well your example is not very convincing, I would interpret "fuck you" as meaning "no you can't, and don't make such a rude request, you idiot". I believe you would be equally likely to say "fuck you" even this if person wasn't physically able to leave, or you if didn't actually want them to. Kappa 00:34, 25 May 2006 (UTC)
You may interpret it that way, but when I say it, I mean "go away." Whenever I mean "no you can't, and don't make such a rude request, you idiot," I simply say "no." In a situation where a person is not physically able to leave, or if I didn’t actually want him to, I still might use the phrase "go away" if I felt like using politer language. —Stephen 06:53, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
Hmm, I think I agree with Kappa, to me the sense is closer to something like up yours. Widsith 06:57, 26 May 2006 (UTC)
To me, up yours is much ruder than fuck you ... equivalent to fuck off. I would only use up yours or fuck off if I were extremely angry; fuck you means go away, but in a friendly way. —Stephen 10:40, 26 May 2006 (UTC)

Actually this is a very ruder form than fuck you....Shut the fuck up or CockWanker is more ruder. Trust me I've been called it before. Don't ask me why.--98.183.183.210 03:42, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

Once you get to the use of this f-word, there isn't any way to make it more vulgar. That said, I'm not a neutral party since I don't swear at all (I have in the past, but that was long ago). Furthermore, how can the "up" phrase be anymore or any less vulgar than the f-word? Tharthan (talk) 13:48, 4 October 2014 (UTC)

offensive, taboo, vulgar[edit]

Is it really necessary to mention this over and over again in the translation table? I think that if you look up fuck you you'll notice that it is vulgar and that the translations/equivalents will also be vulgar. 81.68.255.36 17:55, 23 March 2010 (UTC)

Equivalents of taboo words are not always taboo in another language, and in any case the equivalent rarely has the same strength. In some languages, the natural bodily functions such as pissing and shitting are not considered vulgar at all. In others, a mention might cause a woman to faint dead away. —Stephen 05:49, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

Hehe, okay. 81.68.255.36 14:51, 24 March 2010 (UTC)

All definitions mean the same thing[edit]

I don't really see why you need three definitions which really say the same thing. I think everything is covered by definition 2. 80.202.87.26 20:01, 14 June 2014 (UTC)
