Hello, thank you for the question.
Can you tell me more about when this comment was made? Was it recorded or published? Don't use details that can identify anybody.
I need more. Were minutes taken? Was the commentor affiliated with the organization? Are you in a paid position? Is the organization incorporated?
Is anyone salaried?
What effect did this comment have, in your opinion?
I'm stepping away from my computer for a bit but I'll be back. You sound like an erudite person. What would you like to see done? I agree that nobody likes to be called Hitler, but it does happen because we can't control what other's say or write about us.
How many were present at this meeting? Are you concerned about your personal reputation?
I'm back, sorry about last night. I didn't have internet access after my last post to you.
While it happens frequently online, nobody likes to be called or compared to Hitler in front of a group. But your remedy, and whether you have one, depends on the context and the impact.
This was a small group and if asked each would likely have a different recall and interpretation of what happened.
What is your recall of the context of the comment? Could the commentor be said to have been being satiric, or sarcastic?
