This hasn’t happened to me recently but when it did, I found it tiresome and boring. This was brought up in another thread. Yes, I am too lazy to look for it now. Anyway, I can’t stand it when people make Hitler analogies directed at specific people. Yes, Hitler was cretinous and evil. But come on people, do you really think that becuase someone disagrees with you that they are that bad? (that is rhetorical) I really hated it when George Bush told the American public that Saddam Hussein was like Hitler. It could have been true, but from that moment on all I could think of was that he had his propaganda machine rolling. That is the only real reason to use Hitler now in my opinion. Comparing his atrocities to something mind boggling inane (such as telling someone that you don’t like them, and having the come back being, well Hitler didn’t like that either; Hitler was also a vegetarian, etc) decimates my intellectual opinion of said person.
Anyway, is there something about online debate that you guys can’t stand either?
PS. This was not meant as a flame. It is not directed at anyone in particular. If it pertains to you, I have not read the thread, and grow up.
