Top definition
To stop a discussion or debate because you expect the outcome to devolve in a preordered process to something that approximates Godwin's Law. This usually occurs by someone with the wisdom or experience to anticipate such an outcome and may give the more vocal and/or calcified poster thinking he/she has won an argument.
