Godwin's Law

I have to say that a discussion about unit testing is the last place I expected this to show up (right after someone mentioned the term "programmer Nazis":
"Godwin's Law States:
"As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one."'s_law

Followed by this:
"Just so you know:
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. In addition, whoever points out that Godwin's Law applies to the thread is also considered to have "lost" the battle, as it is considered poor form to invoke the law explicitly.

Again, that is from wikipedia.  So, this thread should be over.

I changed my mind - Mock objects are wrong for database unit testing
