Sully gets Godwin'd

Not a good day for Sully as he decides to call anyone who disagrees with him ( by inferance) of thinking like hitler.

Ace calls Godwin's Law on Sully's talking about torture.

There is a tradition in many Usenet newsgroups that once such a comparison is made, the thread is over, and whoever mentioned the Nazis has automatically lost whatever argument was in progress. Godwin's law thus practically guarantees the existence of an upper bound on thread length in those groups. Many people understand Godwin's law to mean this, although (as is clear from the statement of the law above) this is not the original formulation.

Under USENET rules Sully has now lost his arguments on torture
