Alex Got It!  

I was also testing the categorization filter on the website. 

Vi/Emacs/Joe/Nano/Pico/Hitler/UFO/Redhat/Ubuntu/Mint/Bodhi/Debian/Android/Jobs/Salaries/EPB/Diesel/Chugalunch/Meeting

Some of those are keywords.

=============================================================== From: Stephen Kraus ------------------------------------------------------ Too bad the 10 plagues never actually happened. The uprising of the Hebrews (who were not the Hebrews at the time, they we're the Canaanites) were largely actually thrown out of Egypt, so Pharoah was not likely similar to Hitler. Also, Hitler was not voted into power. He actually came in second in the Chancellorship vote, but Hindenburg and several key members of the German Reichstag GAVE him the chancellorship out of fear of a civil war (which Hitler and the SA had fully expected would be required) and in the hopes of controlling him. Hitler 'won' the second (and by and large fraud filled) vote after Austria joined Germany through 'Anschluss', where he received a 90% vote (despite 4 million voting no, which testifies to just how fraud fraught the vote was)

=============================================================== From: Chad Smith ------------------------------------------------------ I=E2=80=99m not going to get into a theological debate here - but the phras= e =E2=80=9Cwho was Hitler before Hitler=E2=80=9D doesn=E2=80=99t require the person to act= ually have been evil, or even to have literally existed at all. The phrase merely refers to Hitler becoming the de facto standard of evil, and the go-to by-word to call someone evil.

=============================================================== From: Chad Smith ------------------------------------------------------ Completely off-topic. The question was asked (not by me) who was Hitler before Hitler was Hitler, and the historically accurate answer is "Pharaoh". Pharaoh was what you called someone who was acting evil and controlling. King of England =3D Pharaoh. Slave-owners =3D Pharaoh. It doesn't matter in this context whether or not the 10 plaques literally happened. It merely matters that it was a nearly-universally understood reference to the English-speaking world at that time, and was used as an easy way to insult, discredit, and generally bash someone without having to do a lot of explanation. 2014 "[Insert Horrible Politcal Leader Here] is Hitler." 1714/1814/1914 "[Insert Horrible Politcal Leader Here] is Pharaoh." 2014 "My boss is Hitler." 1714/1814/1914 "My boss is Pharaoh." There was no call for your opinion on what, again, is a huge part of the beliefs of billions (Jews, Christians, and Muslims). You know who else off-handedly discredited the beliefs of the Jewish people....? *- Chad W. Smith* On Thu, Jul 24, 2014 at 5:23 PM, Stephen Kraus wrote:

Suggesting that we should ignore relevant evidence and historical evidence because it might inconvenience or offend someones faith is literally the echo of arguments from the days of Galileo from the Geocentrists. to

=============================================================== From: James Nylen ------------------------------------------------------ I think we've made a momentous discovery today. "It is considered poor form to raise [a comparison to Hitler] arbitrarily with the motive of ending the thread. There is a widely recognized corollary that any such ulterior-motive invocation of Godwin's law will be unsuccessful." It appears that if Godwin's Law is invoked in the *first post* of a thread, the consequences will be even worse and the thread is hopeless from the beginning. I haven't seen iOS mentioned yet.
