Wow neal, that's very nice of you.  are you saying that hitler didn't do any of 
these things?  I'm not even going to respond to you here, just going to re-post 
your words to show that there are still people like you out there...

And as far as your sage to the moon quote, don't think too much of your own 
sagedom, there is always someone younger and smarter.  You would be better off 
being a little less "sagy" and a bit nicer.

Now to the rest of you who are for some reason turning this into a Censorship 
issue.  It's not.  I'm asking to replace the text on the HTML front page with a 
completely unnecessary reference to hitler.  We're not talking about pruning 
the quotes database for controversial speakers.  having hitlers name there does 
nothing positive for the project and polarizes the viewing audience because it 
offends the vast majority of people, 99% of whom are not going to spend an 
evening writing to a mailing list to have the issue fixed. They won't think 
about the deep philosophical reasons why this should be there in principle.  
They are going to read the page and think to themselves that the freebsd 
community are a bunch of jerks. 

There are far better ways to express the thought than by simply saying "hitler 
quotes".  For instance it can be replaced with "controversial persons" or 
something similar.  He was not the only such person in history, so we should 
not be focusing only on him.
