Definition of Godwin's Law
noun - uncountable
- an Internet "Law" (i.e. observation that often holds true) formulated by Mike Godwin. It states that "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 100%."
I think that was an intentional invocation of Godwin's Law, so it doesn't really count.
