I don't mean to be rude, but...
But you are. Think of a politer way to say it. This shows you simply do not care.

This is a line of 4pt unreadable text that was not worth reading.
Small text is fine so people who skim can skip it, but the minimum size is 8pt or by exception 7pt. Beyond that it's unreadable and simply a pain for everyone.

Well F*ck, you're such an ***hole!
If you want to say fuck and asshole, go ahead and say it. Everyone knows what you want to say, it's not going to turn into anything polite by covering it up, nor will it less offend whoever you are talking about. When you are afraid of being filtered out because the word fuck appears on your page, think of another way to say it.
One of the things I notice when reading good books is how the writers always manage to express the right level of annoyance or anxiety or any emotion at all, but they never use any obscene words. Usually even better than people who do use obscenities.
