Every ATS member should have to read this. So many, including myself occasionally, fall pray to some of these fallacies.
Side note: One of the things that creates many of these is tit for tat between posters. I've been drawn in on occasion. Our natural inclination is to
"beat" the other guy rather than have a rational conversation. While I'm sure I may be drawn in again at some point in the near future, I've been
trying to just back out rather than get into a spat. They tend to degenerate into personal peepee contests. And many of those fallacies get used.
Also, your point in the OP. The political media complex is especially adept at using them too.
