Curses. People always think of them as bad things and talk about how 'evil' they are. In my opinion, there are several views of curses based on belief. Some may find them a terrible, evil thing to do, others may find them not a problem. Here is how I view them.
I believe in balance. I do not curse people just because they make me angry, or insult me. I only place a curse on an item or possession that I feel may be stolen or intended to be stolen. So for example. If I place a curse (Which I have not done.) around a possession that is valuable and may be stolen, I would curse it and give it a specific effect like "If they steal (item name) Their legs will be sore for 3 days." So if that item is stolen, they will feel pain. It doesn't mean they will return it though. You can also bless someone as a curse. Sometimes fortune can be just as bad as misfortune. In my opinion, there must always be a balance. Both good and bad things must happen in order for anything to change.
As stated before, Some may view curses as bad, evil ,etc. Others may view them nonchalantly. It all depends again on personal belief and moral values. You may agree, you may disagree.
