Nobody is impressed that you know a few Latin phrases, dorkwad. Nor is that an “ad hominem”.

Point of logical order because I think the article missed this nuance.

If Person A makes argument X
And Person B responds with ad hominem or anything entirely exclusive of X (disjoint set)
That is the formal fallacy of Avoiding the Issue

A metric ton of internet shitlords love to do this.

A: “My argument is X”.


Person B has failed to counter the argument.
