Before proceeding to the bulk of the material available in Yvelheim, please take a few moments to check this list of people who may be offended by its content. If you are offended, but are not warned here, I apologize. Please let me know your name and the reason for your offense, and I will add both to the list.
Yvelheim contains some naughty words. Those who have a problem with this may be offended. Those who wish to censor my words are invited to contribute to the eventual enlightenment of the human race by getting yourselves sterilized. Which leads us to...
The author supports our first- and fourth-amendment rights, and opposes deliberate threats to our well-being. This will be offensive to nazis, fascists, and southern baptists. Also, based upon voting and signing records, these rights are offensive to nearly all members of the Senate1 and the House of Representatives2, as well as to every President in my lifetime.3
The author advocates treating people with respect. This may be offensive to assholes, bigots, liars, hate-mongers, fundamentalists, and other Harriers.
The author supports moral absolutism. This will be offensive to some moral relativists, and to most small-minded creeps.
Yvelheim contains insults to several political parties; you can guess which ones by now.
