These lists are not necessarily exhaustive. Use common sense in applying these rules (for example, a word that may seem offensive in one context may have another, more benign meaning in another context). For guidance on how to deal with inappropriate names if encountered, see Dealing with inappropriate usernames below.

Famous quotes containing the word policy:

—George Marshall (18801959)
