    Significant doesn't mean good or bad.

    Personally I think he was pretty significant in history

    In Germany any kind of publicity directed at nazi ideals and history is illegal. Thus the omission. Its not PC, its just illegal over there.

    When I was young I was told 'Never be ashamed of who you are or where you came from'. Germany should be told this.

    But if he can't even win a poll of the most significant people named Adolf, he's really in trouble. Perhaps a sex tape of him should be released to boost his popularity.

    To get that you need to speak to Will Smith. He has copies of the Porn from Hitler's bunker.

    There are plenty of examples of Germany's strict attitude towards anything Nazi, so why would you make one up?

    Also, even if you believe it, don't say "PC is going too far!!!!". It makes you sound like a tool.
