The fallacy chart is useless except among people who believe in the veracity of the fallacy chart.

see that picture. That’s me at 17 years old. I’m 43 years old now. I’ve been on the Internet the entire time whenever I could be, since 1989.

Arguing with logical fallacies doesn’t work. I tried it for three months in 1993 on Usenet. Seemed like fun. But all it was is a “haha we took them down” group in what used to be called a “flame war” and nothing changed. Got old.

The fallacy chart is useless except among people who believe in the veracity of the fallacy chart. For anybody else, it’s just a ridiculous chart and most people who use them are assholes who hardly even use the chart much and spend most of the time mocking in some way. It’s heckling to get Likes from their friends, rarely a reasonable discourse from those who use it.

 

You may believe the bullshit but I don’t think you do. It’s a fun game to pass the time, but it’s nothing close to reason or discussion.
