Nazi refers to a particular historical group and is thus misused in this
thread. If "react" replaces Nazi with fascist can he continue? I'm
enjoying the banter.
BTW: Are you suggesting that no discussion could ever exist where a
comparison to Nazis or Hitler is accurate and therefore appropriate? What
about comparisons to Whigs or maybe Caesar? Just curious about the "rules".
