Hey All,

I've spotted 12 instances of swear words in OpenJDK source comments, and 
it seems appropriate to remove them.

Bug: https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8215217

I've created a webrev and attached to the bug.

Also, I've mentioned in the bug that there are additional swears in more 
excusable locations. It would be good to get the community's take on 

Reviews and opinions welcome. :)

Best Regards
