BTW, you completely misunderstand Godwin's Law.

"There is a tradition in many newsgroups and other Internet discussion
forums that once such a comparison is made, the thread is finished and

in progress. This principle is itself frequently referred to as Godwin's
Law. Thus Godwin's Law serves also to impose an upper bound on thread
length in general."


Look up "comparison" in a dictionary. Then come back here and explain that in the context of what I wrote. I didn't *compare* anything or anyone to Hitler. I referred to Hitler, the historical figure himself. You really do not understand Godwin's law at all.
