Fallacious arguments

#1
We've got a thread on overused phrases, but what about the same shit arguments that crop up on every thread? Normally put forward when a tantrum is on the horizon.

Things like misrepresenting the opposing argument - leading to those awesome threads where legitimate debate is put in a paper bag and drowned like an unwanted puppy by those clarifying their initial position over and over again.

Just about all of these crop up on ARRSE on a regular basis: List of fallacies - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Any more?

I now believe that correlation doesn't necessarily imply causation.

The fallacy that anyone that expresses a Republican view is automatically advocating a President Blair, Brown or Cameron because, in the world of the fallacious argument, these are the only possible alternatives and an Executive President model is the only possible alternative.

Feel free to start a thread explaining the alternatives then!

"The silent majority". Usually used by someone who can't quite bring themselves to accept that something they themselves believe so passionately it consumes their very soul matters not a jot to anyone else.

And yet publicly loves himself. Last time they caught him at it, they had to take the bus out of service

He must love you very much judging by the amount of time you seem to spend there...
Enough to do the "special cuddle" where babies come from?
