I don't know any soft way to say this. The man, Hitler, was the most evil person that our generation has ever witnessed. The things he did and what was done on his behalf are unspeakable and give him a special place in whatever hell you believe in. As a society, we should distance ourselves and shun any imagery that puts any kind of human side to this monster. Saying that he loved dogs and was an art afficionado is completely irrelevant if you know anything about his actions.

There are far more worthy quotes that can be put into FreeBSD and I don't think its debateable.

What really gets me is the fact that this is one of the examples put on the FreeBSD page. I'm all for freedom and libertarian ideals, but for petes' sake, have some compassion and understand where your liberty crosses over into the pain of someone else's family. Why didn't they put on that page along with "quotes about hitler", "jokes about cancer" and "funny rape stories."

I don't want to outlaw anything, but have some good taste. Learn to moderate yourselves, this is what "freedom" is all based on, being good to others.

I would appreciate if someone would help me find the person who can help to modify the text on this page.
I think it can be worded differently and get the point accross without giving any extra attention to this monster.

Best Regards,

I see that as an example of something that might be offensive on the
surface but we might not want to outlaw just as a matter of course.

For instance if someone submitted this for the fortune rotation:

I might consider the man to be a maniac but he did utter some truths,
Should we automatically disqualify them?
