We have reached Godwin's law and not even to page 5 yet.....
You're the catalyst only sir, not directed at you.
and this is a problem that needs serious addressing...I spent months this year with PM's off because of the usual members, but also a group/sockpuppets. Dan banned him/them for an unbelievable attack on me in the roll call thread...and I actually asked Dan and then changed it to a suspension.
To call me, a veteran, an honorable veteran a nazi is absolutely hate speech and should not imo be accepted in any civilized society...but I am called worse (but keep in mind, this soldier went through boot camp in 1978, every single drill sgt was a well seasoned Vietnam Vet, Full Metal Jacket boot camp scenes were very close to my experience...I wouldnt suggest saying it to my face)
Billions of words on this planet and people who call themselves intelligent cant express themselves any better? Godwins law is offensive to the people who are making the posts calling people nazis, it simply screams desperation of no longer having a point to make and imo displays a total lack of intellect.
There are indeed legit uses of the word, or at least some that would not directly challenge KvR rules...calling someone/company a nazi is a violation of the rules.../end
