While Facebook's rules do not directly prohibit swearing and it can be used in posts, comments, and messages, there are some sorts of speech that are prohibited and should be reported to keep your page clean. Swearing violates this policy and can lead to being blocked from posting on Facebook.
Users can report any comment that breaks the website's commenting guidelines or any other post that violates community standards. The user who reports the comment will receive an email notification that their content was found inappropriate and they will be given the option to delete it. If a second violation occurs after the first one is deleted, then Facebook may block that user from posting for 30 days. A third violation within 12 months leads to permanent blocking.
In addition, users can report any photo or video as inappropriate. The reporting user will again receive an email notification that their content was found objectionable and they will have the option to delete it. If a second violation occurs after deleting the first one, then Facebook may block that user from posting for 30 days.
Finally, users can report any user who uses curse words in their profile description or cover image. When reporting someone's profile, only select the "I am in danger" option; otherwise, your message will not be delivered.
Cursing and swearing are not generally prohibited by Facebook's terms of service or community standards. If your company is aimed at a mature audience, you may curse all you want on your page as long as it doesn't cross the line into bullying or hate speech.
Facebook also has a function that filters out well-known vulgarity and other insults. The profanity filter employs a list of terms that have been flagged as inappropriate by other users. You may remove improper swearing from your Facebook profile by using this filter. However, some items may not be removed through this process. For example, references to specific individuals or groups of people cannot be removed with this tool.
If you feel you have been defamed on Facebook, ensure that the remark or item ticks all four boxes listed below. The assertion is untrue. A statement must be untrue in order to be called defamatory. If it is true, it cannot be defamatory.
If you are not sure whether something constitutes defamation, we recommend that you seek legal advice from a solicitor.
Remember, if you publish comments on Facebook they can and will be seen by many more people than would ever see your blog post or newspaper article. Therefore, you should only make statements that are worthy of being published elsewhere.
Facebook has excellent guidelines for reporting comments as well as taking down inappropriate content. We recommend that you read these guidelines before filing any reports.

While profanity isn't permitted, Blizzard isn't stupid enough to anticipate 100% compliance all of the time, hence the filter to protect those who don't want to see that possibility. Language is no longer grounds for a ban or even suspension! This means that as long as what you say doesn't break any rules, you can say whatever you want.
However, this does not mean that cursing will get you away with saying inappropriate things. If someone feels offended by something you said, they can report you. This can result in your account being banned from online play or removed completely if it was your main account. There are also people who take offense to certain types of language who may use different methods to expose your indiscretion. For example, if you use the f-word too often, some people may hunt you down and kill you as a form of revenge hacking.
In conclusion, yes, you can get banned from World of Warcraft for swearing. However, if you say everything nice about everyone, there's no way you could be banned for life!
