What is Godwin’s Law?
This law states that “as an Internet discussion drags on, the probability that a comparison be made with Hitler or the Nazis, tends to 1”. Or, in other words, the more you discuss something on the Internet, will eventually make a comparison to Nazis or Hitler, regardless of the topic that was originally discussed.
This law is part of a group of terms that apply to Internet discussions in order to describe what to expect to see Internet content. It is a commonly empelada label in a forum or online discussion to reach a reference to obey the law of Godwin, the conversation ends (unless in the case of a direct discussion of the subject, of course).
This law originated around 1990, and is attributed to Mike Godwin, American lawyer and who has been involved with the world of open source. Initially it referred specifically to discussions taking place in the Usenet network, which has existed since 1980, but references to this law are still used in blogs, forums and other means of discussion on the Internet.
