Stop acting like a Nazi.

So if I work for Apple, AND I don't like Chinese people, does advocating for the forced labor that takes place in their China factories qualify? Or would I have to also advocate for executing the ones that can't work anymore, perhaps lobbying for the cost saving measure of building a crematorium?

I also think supporting invasion of Poland should be in the definition somewhere.

I'll add invading Poland. As for your example, any part of that would definitely be problematic. If you lobbied for executions and a crematorium, then yes, it would be fair to compare you to Nazis. The point of this post was to suggest Nazi allegories, for the most part, should only be used as a last resort or when Nazi-like practices are being advocated.

You know, maybe we should have a thing where the editorial staff does an op-ed? We sticky it for 3-4 days and then replace it when someone writes a new one? I like this post, I have been trying to think of ways to jump-start conversation in the sub, maybe this will do it?

Sure. Sounds good to me.
