I have noticed that the "smiles" feature list the 'ninja' image as the the N*word.

You might think this is a mistake but it occurs twice in the smiles menu for the second 'ninja' icon.

I am of African-American descent and find this quite offensive.

It's not a mistake. When people type it it puts up the Ninja image the same way as when you type the f word Fuck appears.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

How is it offensive? Please explain to me the logical process that goes through your brain, that tells you that seeing the Ninja Gaiden logo, instead of a racial slur, is offensive. It only exists as an emergency censor system should some goofy biggot come on CAG and drop a bunch of N bombs.

I didn't realize that was what it was meant for. Thanks whoknows for explaining. But I dont think I have to defend my initial response.

it's the exact opposite of offensive, it's practically defensive: Cheapy doesn't want the word around, so, like Fuck, he has it censored.

Why not go after the beeping sound whenever someone curses on a TV show, it's the same premise.

If you're insulted because it's on the list, I'm pretty sure cheapy can't help that. It's just how the program works

Wow, some of you people are attacking the OP for nothing.

Did you guys happen to think that he might have thought it was a joke or something and didn't understand it was a censor?

Crazy idea I know, but some of you are being assholes about it.
