He looks as though he has wandered into the wrong building and would be more at home in an office or a bank with his timid manner and silver spectacles, his hair carefully combed to diguise the fact that it is beginning to thin.

Author: Jeffrey Tayler

On the other hand, polite, formal language is allowed almost anywhere even when all it is communicating is hatred and violence.
