Someone told me once that using the word "should" is rude. Do you agree? If so, what is a good way to replace the word?

It's a word like any other. Its neither rude nor polite. It's just a word. Any hint of rudeness comes from the way words are used.

There are times when the word "should' should be used such as "you should not drink and drive". In less important matters you could say "It might be a good idea to..." do this or that.
