Re: The Godwin's Law brigade Re: The Godwin's Law brigade (mainly for the benefit of Matt Clark...) You are a sorry soul aren't you ... dear dear dear. I hate to be inversely snobbish but I'm glad I didn't know what Godwin's Law meant - I really am... but now that I do, and since it is obvious that you want to make an issue of it, I took the liberty of finding out what it really meant. http://www.faqs.org/faqs/usenet/legends/godwin/ Here's a quick quote: "5. What should I do if somebody else invokes Godwin's Law? The obvious response is to call them on it, say "thread's over", and declare victory. This is also one of the stupidest possible responses, because it involves believing far too much in the power of a few rules that don't say exactly what you wish they said anyway. The proper response to an invocation is probably to simply followup with a message saying "Oh. I'm a Nazi? Sure. Bye" and leave, and in most cases even that much of a post is unnecessary. " Seeing that my reference to Hitler was not an insult in any way, it is clear that you completely misinterpreted my comment, and also this 'rule'. So, now we all know that you are, to quote your colourful expression, an 'intellectually stunted drop-kick'.... Congratulations.
