    I'm confused, so nothing changes, but:

    If you say "allow **** " FOR EXAMPLE: "Allow NT"

    Does that mean: NT are great, Tolerate NT or : NT is shit?
    Help me out here!

    Okey dokey, here is the lenghty version:

    If you look on some of the UK threads, sometimes when discussion wanders onto a specific topic or writer, FOR EXAMPLE lets say the crew "NT", there always seems to be one person who posts the phrase;

    "Allow NT"

    What does this phrase mean ?

    maybe it's short for 'innit' which I think is short for 'Isn't it?'

    thought it meant, like: 'forget NT (bruv/init/breh)' or "don't worry bout NT" or whatever you apply it to

    i'm probably wrong - youth of today, not in my generation, i remember when this was all fields etc etc

    Allow = respect
    Allow is to permit the doing of, you give permission when you respect someone.

    Just a guess, most brits are wierd though, they enjoy boiled meat and such.

    depending on context...

    Allow Nt can mean 'fuck Nt' or 'allow Nt' in the more traditional sense

    u could say 'allow touching my (for example) hand' which would mean 'do not' sort of.

    anway, allow all these questions

    Yes. Generally when yoused by ghetto youts "allow" TENDS to purvey the negative.
    "Allow NT" ------> 'Fuck NT'
    "Allow raping me" -----> 'Please don't rape me.'
    "Allow pooing on my chest" ------> 'Don't shit on me you weirdo.'

    HOWEVER, an alternative use: asking permission;
    "Allow me your phone" -----> 'Gimme dat, i've got 4 of my mates standing with me so you'd be stupid to refuse.'



    I hope this clears things up.
