What are your favorite logical fallacies? I like ad hominem and non sequitur, as well as affirming the consequent. How about you?

Ad hominem. It may be mainstream, but it's still the best nonetheless.

I think tu qoque is a pretty interesting one to use. Personally I use ambiguity to get my way out of things if push comes to shove.

Appeal to authority.

I see that one all the time.

I do mean the most amusing one.

Lorreen the One Punch Moderator says it the most amusing one as well, so I believe it.

Forget authority. I see you're trying to master "appeal through canards" (or rather, creation of them through lies)
