I thought I would share here concerning the Bill Bauer/LizardKings situation. In my textbook, under "Recognizing Logical Fallacies," I found the following: "Allness. The allness fallacy means stating or implying that something is true of an entire class of things. There are exceptions to every rule, and your readers are likely to find them.... Be wary of *allness* words -- *all*, *everyone*, *no one*, *always*, *never*." Other standouts in the list are "oversimplification" ("offer[ing] neat and easy solutions for large, complicated problems"), "either/or reasoning" ("a special brand of oversimplified thinking"), and the argument from ignorance, which fallacy of course allegedly includes the rejection of arbitrary claims. I had planned to argue that there is no reason to fear the Bill Bauer/Lizardking criticisms and tantrums, by pointing out the (real) ad ignorantiam fallacy of their oppositions to each other. I am not sure how to proceed knowing that my post will be judged by the above standards.
