[ox-en] Mako and Plagiarism - or in future do your own work mate ....

Did a cc and searched for nazi and debian and funny I came across this from 
2002. Does it remind you of something Mako said here late last year when 
talking about freedom and a comparison made to all that free speak and bush 
not that I care about originality that much but I actually thought Mako was 
telling us something he wrote not just cut and pasting!!!

Godwin's law is not something one can "invoke". It merely states that
given a thread of sufficient length, the probability that one party will
compare the other to Hitler or Nazis approaches 1.

When one party deliberately mentions it, and uses the word "Nazi", then
the situation is abnormal.

Perhaps there should be a corollary, vis:

As a discussion grows, the likelihood of one party muttering about
Godwin's Law also approaches 1.
