Things I will not accept in an argument posted 14 February 2006 in Philosophy DiscussionThings I will not accept in an argument by unJon, Auditor

Hey Quinthane,

Check out [url=http://www.slate.com/id/2129105/?nav=tap3:2jvqsu2s]this article[/url:2jvqsu2s] for an interesting take on the word literally. Btw, ironically, you 'misused' literally in your sentence, but I guess that was on purpose.

My pet peeve is when people use "slippery slope" as an argument against something instead of as a reason to set up a careful set of rules for how to do it.

I also hate ad hominum attacks. An argument should stand or fall on its own, not on its orator.

And I definitely concur with those above that I cannot stand those who have already made up their mind. view post
