Firstly, Godwin's Law refers to the inevitable reference to Hitler as a
fallacious attack against an opponent in an online debate. I wasn't attacking
you but was merely illustrating how the mind set of an extreme racist (a
neo-Nazis) is something I'm gladly ignorant of.
Furthermore, I'm not sure how I could have "lost the thread" when the author
(Kristy) of the point I was commenting on agreed with me.
