Also, I would think using curse words would be bad marketing for The Hardy Boys- seeing as how the books are aimed at children and most parents don't want their children using such language. I would think Simon & Schuster would hate to be held up as the one responsible for introducing people's kids to bad language- and thus possibly lose sales from some parents.
But as kosmicdust said, there are better ways to express oneself and I'd prefer the books stick with that. I thought that was at least one lesson the Adventures series learned from the Undercover Brothers books.

So they swear in the Adventure books too?
