Your Fallacies:
  1. False Dilemma (wiki): Two alternative statements are held to be the only possible options, when in reality there are more.
  2. Association Fallacy (wiki): Arguing that because two things share a property they are the same. Commonly guilt by association or honor by association.
  3. Cherry Picking (wiki): Act of pointing at individual cases or data that seem to confirm a particular position, while ignoring a significant portion of related cases or data that may contradict that position.
  4. Hasty Generalization (wiki): Basing a broad conclusion on a small sample.
  5. 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.
  6. False Analogy (wiki): An argument by analogy in which the analogy is poorly suited.
  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. Cum hoc ergo propter hoc (wiki): A faulty assumption that correlation between two variables implies that one causes the other.
  9. 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.
  10. Inconsistent Comparison (wiki): Where different methods of comparison are used, leaving one with a false impression of the whole comparison.
  11. 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).
  12. Straw man (wiki): An argument based on misrepresentation of an opponent's position.
  13. Opinion as Fact (basically free): It is true if I say it enough.
  14. Texas Sharpshooter Fallacy (wiki): Improperly asserting a cause to explain a cluster of data that the larger data set does not support.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. Fallacy of Composition (wiki): Assuming that something true of part of a whole must also be true of the whole.
  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. Fallacy fallacy (wiki): Assumes that if an argument for some conclusion is fallacious, then the conclusion itself is false.
  20. Appeal to Ridicule (wiki): A specific type of appeal to emotion where an argument is made by presenting the opponent's argument in a way that makes it appear ridiculous.
  21. Chronological Snobbery (wiki): Where a thesis is deemed incorrect because it was commonly held when something else, clearly false, was also commonly held.
  22. Nirvana Fallacy (wiki): When solutions to problems are rejected because they are not perfect.
  23. Slippery Slope Fallacy (wiki): Asserting that a relatively small first step inevitably leads to a chain of related events culminating in some significant impact.
  24. 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.
  25. Retrospective Determinism (wiki): The argument that because some event has occurred, its occurrence must have been inevitable beforehand.
