'Logical fallacy' is not just a classy way of referring to a statement you disagree with. It refers to a structural flaw in an argument. Can you show a structural flaw in an argument in my post?
Absolutely. Your statement that because of my response to Chris, I can not be taken seriously, by definition is flawed logically. Just because you disagree with my response to Chris does not have any relationship to how seriously, I as a person, should be taken.http://www.nizkor.org/features/fallacie ... minem.html
If the issue under discussion was one independent of human judgement, such as arithmetical calculations, you would be quite right that it would be misleading to suggest that your views on such matters were to be discounted on the mere grounds that I disagreed with you about some matter of opinion.
But if the issue is how posters on this board are to be judged - then I am quite happy to state as my considered view that anyone who evaluates the work of Chris Smith in the dismissive and contemptuous fashion you do is not a person on whose judgements of other posters I would place much weight.
The argument goes like this, you see:
Anyone who views Chris Smith's work with contempt has demonstrated a low ability to evaluate the intelligence and sincerity of posters.
Jskains has viewed Chris Smith's work with contempt.
Therefore jskains has demonstrated a low ability to evaluate the intelligence and sincerity of posters.
The logic is flawless. Your problem is with the truth value of the premises.
