    Have a short friend you would like to get started on Ultima Online? NO PROBLEM! Just send them to this link over at the UO Herald!

    THE YEW TIMES - A Newspaper for Sosaria | Mythic Entertainment | Ultima Online

    With plenty of offensive/derogatory words to go around for the whole family, who can go wrong!?

    -This post on the herald just goes to show, UO does in fact support the use of offensive/derogatory words from it's player base....

    Have Fun!

    -Way to lose a potential target audience who would love to escape into a fantasy world. =)

    *For more information on the word "midget" please head on over to wikipedia!

    Just another great example of everyone gets offended by something. Its becoming impossible to speak without someone getting "offended"

    Best to avoid most fantasy worlds then... between Hobbits and Dwarfs, Lord of the Rings and Narnia must be off limits.

    And usually, offended on behalf of someone else..... as if those people need a spokesperson...

    My Aunt prefers the term *Little Person*. She's 3 feet 2 inches tall...my favorite Aunt in the WHOLE world because she's one of the few people I know that's shorter then me! :)

    Though I would have thought that Lord Popeye should have asked for some Turkish Delight before taking the both of them out ;)

    IF you must get technical however, it wasn't a midget but a dwarf that accompanied the White Witch through Narnia....but I don't think they were going for accuracy in The Yew Times :/

    Some people just need to chillax! :banana:

    Actually, both of the Yew Times posts have had somewhat offensive content in them. Whoever is proofing them for subject material needs to reread the UO ToS.
