    As an online discussion grows longer, the probablity of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1.

    What's a Godwin and how do I smoke it? Oh, ok. I think it's bullshit.

    Of course, not having in mind the term "grammar nazi"

    Ah yes, reductio ad Hitlerum.

    If it's a heated discussion, yes, it's unavoidable. There are a few topics that are sure to bring up Hitler sooner or later:

    Politics: Hitler.
    Religion: Hitler.
    Vegetarianism: Hitler.
    Drugs: Hitler.
    Human rights: Hitler.

    There are more, these are just off the top of my head.

    The person to bring up Hitler in an argument has immediately lost it and the topic should end at said point

    They should make a wordfilter so that when somebody includes "Hitler" in their post, the thread locks.

    oh, and if we're talking about Hitler, can we say a joke?

    Why did Hitler commit suicide?
    He got his gas bill. [​IMG]

    Scientists have announced that we have made contact with an alien race who's planet is entirely covered by one gigantic shopping center.
    The sceptical scientists didn't believe it at first, but they've now confirmed that it's a mall world after all.

    I took a beer bottle to the recycling center, but they wouldn't take it.
    They said: "This is the pint of no return."

    As I was leaving the hospital, I got an electric shock from my credit card.
    But the doctor said not to worry about it; it had just been discharged.
