What exactly is Godwin’s theory? It seems related to discussions and mentioning of hitler/nazis, but I can’t seem to get it from the context it’s used in.

Godwin’s Law

Eventually a poster in a thread will mention Hitler or the Nazis. At that point the thread is over and the poster has lost.

Just like Aro said. :slight_smile:

And if Aro’s link doesn’t answer your question fully this guy goes into an extruciatingly detailed description.

… Leading to this link where Godwin himself speaks … interesting stuff!
