In the spirit of everyone from Moore to Godwin, I humbly present:
Greenberg’s Law: On the Internet, any discussion, no matter how substantial its subject matter, can be completely derailed by the presence of a typographical error. For example, regardless of the veracity of the previous sentence, no one would discuss the point it makes if there were an apostrophe in the word “its.”
Greenberg’s Corollary: The person who brings up the typo, at the exclusion of the subject being discussed, concedes the argument.
