Can people stop responding to this thread, especially the personal OT back and forth exchanges? I'm on the freebsd-questions list and it's clogging up my inbox and has nothing to do with the FreeBSD operating system. I think most agree the website should be change to exclude the specific reference to Hitler and I'm going to email the freebsd-www list to see if I can get this change made, unless someone has a better suggestion on how to get it changed. Everything else is very OT. Here's one man's plea to stop this thread now.

I do agree with this statement above! Besides I wouldn't like to see the name Hitler on freebsd's website. It just doesn't belong there. Especially when the website is saying, that the quotes are not offensive. Please remove that entry, at least.
