Having a list does prevent people from saying they had no notice, though. There's simply no justification for preserving this level of vagueness.
Right, that was a good example of the standard in action. Under the standard, everyone should be able to come up with a partial list in their head of things that would be considered racial slurs when used in context. If you can't work with the standard of not using racial slurs (in a derogatory manner), then you're probably not responsible enough to use the internet, anyway.
The list of racial slurs is long and unbearable to detail for these purposes; if the moderators were to set out a detailed guide with a list, they are bound to miss some. And then the argument becomes "Well, you didn't list [porch monkey, mud shark, someother vailpass favorite, etc.], therefore, I didn't have notice."
Let common sense be your guide. Anyway, there's no vagueness doctrine to chiefsplanet rules. We aren't interpreting your Constitution. If someone has trouble with this, perhaps a different forum will suit their purposes.
