    The corellary to Godwin's law is that mentioning Hitler merely to envoke
Godwin's law nullifies it.  Of course it is also a misunderstanding of
Godwin's law that a thread ends when Hitler is mentioned.  It really states
that the longer a thread goes the higher the chance it will gravitate to
mentioning Hitler so that all sufficiently long-lived topics will eventually
converge on the same thing.  No mention of ending.  ;)
