:Godwin's Law: prov.
[Usenet] "As a Usenet discussion grows longer, the probability of a
comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one." There is a
tradition in many groups that, once this occurs, that thread is over,
and whoever mentioned the Nazis has automatically lost whatever
argument was in progress. Godwin's Law thus practically guarantees
the existence of an upper bound on thread length in those groups.
However there is also a widely- recognized codicil that any
intentional triggering of Godwin's Law in order to invoke its
thread-ending effects will be unsuccessful. Godwin himself has
discussed the subject.
