  2. Poisoning the well (wiki): A type of ad hominem where adverse information about a target is presented with the intention of discrediting everything that the target person says.
  3. Naturalistic Fallacy (wiki): Attempts to prove a claim about ethics by appealing to a definition of the term -good- in terms of either one or more claims about natural properties.
  4. Thought terminating cliche (wiki): A commonly used phrase, sometimes passing as folk wisdom, used to quell cognitive dissonance, conceal lack of thought-entertainment, move onto other topics etc. but in any case, end the debate with a cliche, not a point.
  5. Fallacy fallacy (wiki): Assumes that if an argument for some conclusion is fallacious, then the conclusion itself is false.
  6. Appeal to Fear (wiki): A specific type of appeal to emotion where an argument is made by increasing fear and prejudice towards the opposing side.
  7. Appeal to Hypocrisy (wiki): The argument states that a certain position is false or wrong and/or should be disregarded because its proponent fails to act consistently in accordance with that position.
  8. Moving the Goalposts (wiki): Argument in which evidence presented in response to a specific claim is dismissed and some other (often greater) evidence is demanded.
  9. Appeal to Novelty (wiki): Where a proposal is claimed to be superior or better solely because it is new or modern.
  10. Slippery Slope Fallacy (wiki): Asserting that a relatively small first step inevitably leads to a chain of related events culminating in some significant impact.
  11. False Analogy (wiki): An argument by analogy in which the analogy is poorly suited.
  12. Wishful Thinking (wiki): A specific type of appeal to emotion where a decision is made according to what might be pleasing to imagine, rather than according to evidence or reason.
  13. Opinion as Fact (basically free): It is true if I say it enough.
  14. Appeal to Probability (wiki): Assumes that because something is likely to happen, it is inevitable that it will happen.
  15. Appeal to Flattery (wiki): A specific type of appeal to emotion where an argument is made due to the use of flattery to gather support.
  16. Inconsistent Comparison (wiki): Where different methods of comparison are used, leaving one with a false impression of the whole comparison.
  17. Historian's Fallacy (wiki): Occurs when one assumes that decision makers of the past viewed events from the same perspective and having the same information as those subsequently analyzing the decision.
  18. Appeal to Spite (wiki): A specific type of appeal to emotion where an argument is made through exploiting people's bitterness or spite towards an opposing party.
  19. Appeal to Tradition (wiki): A conclusion supported solely because it has long been held to be true.
  20. Genetic Fallacy (wiki): Where a conclusion is suggested based solely on something or someone's origin rather than its current meaning or context.
  21. Fallacy of Composition (wiki): Assuming that something true of part of a whole must also be true of the whole.
  22. Fallacy of Many Questions (wiki): Someone asks a question that presupposes something that has not been proven or accepted by all the people involved (loaded question).
  23. Appeal to Consequences (wiki): The conclusion is supported by a premise that asserts positive or negative consequences from some course of action (If P, then Q will occur. Q is desirable. Therefore, P is true. ).
