2. IMO the level of discourse hasn't changed much since I've been posting. There are some folk

 

who practice a low level of discourse and some folk who practice a higher level. That's about what I'd expect for any similar group.

4. My Dad used many of these devices when "arguing."

 

I'd be winning an argument with him and he'd throw one of these fallacies in my path. And he thought he'd won the argument.

5. The problem w ad hominem attacks is that one group does it & it's ok.

 

But when another group does it, it's not ok. That's the real problem w ad hominem attacks on DU.
