From "The Associated Press Stylebook": "We do not use obscenities, racial epithets or other offensive slurs in stories unless they are part of direct quotations and there is a compelling reason for them."

From "The New York Times Manual of Style and Usage": "The *Times* very rarely publishes obscene words . . . sometimes at an acknowledged cost in the vividness of an article or two."

From the Daily Stormer style guide: "While racial slurs are allowed/recommended, not every reference to non-white[s] should be a slur. . . . It should not come across as genuine raging vitriol. That is a turnoff to the overwhelming majority of people." The guide, apparently written by the site's founder and chief propagandist, Andrew Anglin, lists eighteen racial slurs that are "advisable" and four that are "not allowed," and reminds writers to "follow the prime directive." The prime directive, as stated a few paragraphs later: "All enemies should be combined into one enemy, which is the Jews."
