: McSpotlight: Lark, please drop it. If Frenchy's behaviour offends you, turn the other cheek. This is a debating room, not a flamepit.

People need to be made aware of the fact that this nuisance subscribes to the type of views that lead to the near extinction of an entire culture because of prejudice and hatred and that his outrage at the terrorism, cruelity and brutality of 'communism' is false. I don't make these posts out of some infantial get the last word and flame the other guy notion, I think everyone hasnt taken seriously enough the fact the guy's a nazi and when confronted by debators hasnt disputed the fact that he is one.

Now I could go about this in another manner without trying to be witty or whatever but I dont think it would benefit anyone if I simply ceased to comment at all and let a holocaust fan get away with it.

McSpotlight: Lark, either he is a neo-nazi or he isn't. If he isn't, then you're accusing him for the people he was making common cause with; which could have been a mistake on his part. If he is, then be thankful that he's actually talking.

This isn't the physical world; it is a place specifically for debating about the real world; as such, the only form of 'victory' you can score here is to make your opponent seem foolish.

Allow him to speak for himself; at the very least, if you just win a debate by drowning your opponent out, you are resorting to force to win an argument - that should be free of coercion.
