Thou shalt not commit logical fallacies

Thou shalt not commit logical fallacies "A logical fallacy is a flaw in reasoning. Logical fallacies are like tricks or illusions of thought, and they're often very sneakily used by politicians and the media to fool people. Don't be fooled! This website has been designed to help you identify and call out dodgy logic wherever it may raise its ugly, incoherent head."

It's much prettier than Wikipedia's page on Fallacy.

I had this printed out and posted in my office, until I realized that people meeting with me would look to see which of the logical fallacies I was committing when I was talking (arguing) with them, though I politely didn't point out theirs. It is gone now.

I have been cleaning up my rhetorical style for awhile now. Mea culpa.
