Let us not forget:

Godwin’s Law (a response to argumentum ad Nazium and reductio ad Hitlerum) was formulated by attorney Mike Godwin, former general counsel for the Wikimedia Foundation, in the 1990s, and states:

“”As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1."

Traditionally in many Internet discussion forums, it is the rule that once such a comparison is made, the discussion is effectively finished and whoever mentioned Hitler or the Nazis has automatically lost the debate, though it is considered sort-of acceptable if one immediately says "Pardon me for invoking Godwin's Law."

On a Quins forum, this could also be employed when using a comparison with, say, Saracens.

Given that, we should also not forget Poe's Law - "Without a clear indication of the author's intent, it is difficult or impossible to tell the difference between an expression of sincere extremism and a parody of extremism."
