  1. Fascist: one of those words that gets thrown around way too much.

    fas-cism (fshzm)

    1. often Fascism
       a. A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism.
       b. A political philosophy or movement based on or advocating such a system of government.
    2. Oppressive, dictatorial control.

    I would characterise Mr. Nielson as a quasi-fascist, but not as totally fascist. The day he starts hacking your site to make it conform to his standards, then he’s a fascist. ;-) Not as bad as calling him a Nazi, though.

  2. Have you ever heard of hyperbole? Huh? Have you!?
    Jon can bite me!

    And I guess he is correct. Quasi-fascist would be more appropriate.
