Godwin’s Rule of Nazi Analogies

As you surf the Net, you will probably come across a reference to Godwin’s Rule. Coined by US lawyer Mike Godwin, it states that in all probability an online discussion will eventually lead to a comparison to Hilter or Nazism.

Godwin’s law is generally cited to discredit the discussion participant who invokes Hitler/Nazism and ends the thread - awarding him a Godwin point.
