I/P discussions....

I know it's a hard subject to discuss civilly. I have a modest suggestion on how to improve such discussions. [more inside]

Why so much Nazi referencing?

So, when do Nazi references become gratuitous?

Sorry if I'm being a Language Nazi, but this has to stop

Okay, just a quick history lesson, paraphrasing Tom Tomorrow:

Feminazis are women who would prefer to treated equally, and in some cases slightly superior, to men, and attempt to spread these views through public protest and legislation.

The actual Nazis were a military group that systematically slaughtered twelve million men, women, and children by means of public execution and torture before burying them in mass graves or incinerating them in ovens.

Sorry if I'm being a Language Nazi, but this has to stop. Please.

A poignant comment

There is much poignancy seeping between the posts in Paris' "Mel Brooks comment on Hitler" thread. And I must say, because of, well, Paris bringing it up. It may be most important to argue with how one feels emotionally on Mel Brooks' statement, but the sum here is definitely more robust than its parts. I thought everybody's posts lent to deepening the discussion and I've found the thread, thus far, very moving.

This miniscule, though very public conversation is yet another example of humanity working through issues that somehow hypothetically we all will go through, whether in fact we actually do or not. Thanks to Paris for bringing it up and sticking to his guns. And like I said, whether I agree with him or not.

This is pure MetaFilter!
