Thou Shalt Not Commit Logical Fallicies

On a side note: I remember freshman logic class at Ole Miss. I proved Aristotle's square of opposition wrong using the square of opposition. Ask me to do it again, and I probably couldn't.

Just because someone uses fallacious reasoning doesn't necessarily mean the person is incorrect.
To conclude thus on such a basis alone would be, in itself, fallacious reasoning. People love to cry "fallacy!" to shut down discussion by using it as a means to invalidate someone's argument. And while the argument may indeed employ questionable logic, it doesn't mean the person is wrong.
Something to keep in mind the next time you go pointing your fingers at people you don't agree with, using anything and everything at your disposal to discredit them instead of considering their conclusions, which may be valid.
