Can we move this thread entirely to com-priv, please?
Somehow, this reminds me of Godwin's Law, and a couple
of associated corollaries:
"As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison
involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one."
- "Godwin's Law of Nazi Analogies", Mike Godwin, EFF staff counsel.
"As global connectivity improves, the probability of actual Nazis being
on the net approaches one."
- "Van der Leun's Corollary to Godwin's Law", Gerard Van der Leun, former
EFF Cambridge office director. This corollary is already proven.
"Thread bandwidth consumption increases in inverse proportion to thread
- "McCandlish's Second Corollary to the Wilcox/McCandlish Law", Stanton
McCandlish, EFF online activist; 1995.
On second thought, this thread actually reminds me of Sturgeon's Law:
"90% of everything is crap."
- "Sturgeon's Law", Theodore Sturgeon
