    It seems that some of you aren't clear on our rules, so I thought I'd take a moment to point out the following:

    Partially edited or abbreviated profanity / slurs are NEVER allowed on NikeTalk.

    If I leave that as is, unfortunately some of you STILL won't get it. So, let me make this perfectly clear: you are NOT tomisspell curse words to get around the filter, to substitute _ or * in place of a letter, etc. Profanity is not allowed, period.

    The same goes for slurs. You are NOT to use any abbreviations for slurs, racial or otherwise. Let me break it down for the pedestrians ambling across ourinformation superhighway: that means no more "nh," no more "N's."
    Deal with it.

    Do NOT post videos containing profanity or racial slurs.

    Many of you continue to prove that common sense is a misnomer. If we don't allow you to curseon NT, we don't want you posting a video that's chock full of profanity. Connect the dots. You are responsible for the content of your posts on NT. That includes embedded videos, it includes links, it includes pasted or even quoted content. If you're going to laugh at someone else's flames andquote them, you're responsible for reproducing that content in your post and you'll be held accountable for that. DON'T DO IT.

    Do NOT mention or link to sites that contain content prohibited under NikeTalk rules.

    NikeTalk was created to be a safe, friendly environment for sneaker fans of all ages andbackgrounds. You are NOT allowed to discuss, link to, or even MENTION the names of websites dealing in illegal file transfers (e.g. "warez" sites),pornography, etc. Again, don't try to get cute and abbreviate unless you'd like to have your account terminated.

    For those who still haven't caught on, this means no "you can find it on that other site." I don'tcare if you think your code is cute or clever, people will invariably ask for links etc. and it's just a back door means of discussing what has no businessbeing discussed on NikeTalk. We absolutely do not want and will not tolerate any discussion of prohibited websites on NikeTalk. As far as our forums areconcerned, they don't even exist.

    Where you go when you leave here is your business - DON'T make it ours.

    This post IS your warning. Anyone who violates the above rules will be banned orsuspended.
