Comments: Congratulations!

Wasn't it related to an argument you had with him at his site (about what, I forget), where he was being his usual maddeningly stubborn self and you were trying to maintain your cool while becoming increasingly exasperated at his resistance to facts and logic? That's how I remember it.

It was fairly civil and polite, though, which is better than most of his engagements with people to his left.

Right, that was it. I think I referred to him as worse than a thousands Hitlers. Then he linked to this site as MegaHitler. I responded by linking to The Poorman as GigaHitler. And it escalated from there, until we ran out of prefixes. At one point the link here referred to him as YottaHitler.

At one point does Godwin kick in? Milli-hitler, centi-hitler, or does it require several deci-hitlers?

Donald: I think it turns out only to require a picohitler, oddly enough. That's when you're a fascist antisemite responsible for the deaths of twelve millionths of a person. It's not the number, it's the comparison.
