It is meant to portray a one-sided action where the accused party is
not afforded a voice, or his/her objections, rationale, or
explanations are ignored.
C'mon, FFS, you know what I mean.
Nobody has called anybody a Nazi, okay?
I'm sorry Dewald, but when I think Gestapo, "knitting circle" is not the
first thing that comes to mind. Nazi is. Yes Twitter needs to be a
little more clear in their communication (ironic?) with developers and
not just send out blank e-mails when they deny a whitelist application
or blacklist somebody as spam. But that is not "Gestapo-like" tactics.
Go ask a survivor of WWII; I'm sure they could tell you the difference.
