SECOND EDIT to add @Rimstalker for maximum attention! As we all know, I love attention, and this seems like ‘my kind of thread’. Lots of Logicz.
Seems like a troll thread to me! So can I haz flag 4 your post pleas?
(not a troll, a response to the OP, via demonstration).
DOWNVOTING as well as LIKING would be good thing though, I think, in my opinion.
Also, in my experience,
-and of course only based on my necessarily limited view point and morality,
-which can only be a function of my ‘culture’ (and all that the mark ,and its use, supposes and presupposes),
purely as I say with no ill intent to ‘troll’
in my oppinion…
those who call others stupid, are rarely as clever as they think they are.
Just my 2isk.
EDIT- I too have linked a list of logical fallacies in a post, as retort to someone WHO STATED HE WAS ARGUING RATIONALY, and liked to use phrases like ‘ad hominem’, so it was relevant
BUT to suggest that the definition of a Troll is someone who never argues fallaciously, to use ‘the rules of debate’ to define a troll in this way-
IS actually faulty logic- @Rimstalker you broke a few of those points in your ‘commandments of reasonable debate’ when you made this thread and subsequent replies.
The first step is to find and acknowledge our own assumptions, our hidden premises if you like, then we can reason with ‘pure logic’
But this is Internet Spaceship forums not philosophy forum or debate society.
