Fairman's Law

Every notice how some online discussion end up calling each other Nazis. There is a law in blogging called Godwin's Law which attempts to explain this. It is:
"As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1 (i.e. certainty)"

However, one other trend I have noted is that discussions about almost anything can end up being a slanging match over the old Israel-Palstine issue. This I have named it Fairman's Law. It is:
"Not how off the track it might be, some how it is possible to end up discussing the conflict in the Middle East".
