"Beware of the Ad Hominem Defense"

To jd925 (see other people can post over you as well) -

An Ad Hom attack is when you attack someone -instead- of proving their argument false.

However, it is NOT an Ad Hom attack, to logically and factually prove your argument false and then call you out as an idiot for being so foolish as to hold your position.

We all rightfully point out that you are idiots, after we have proven you and your arguments to undeniably be idiotic.

That's not an Ad Hom attack... idiot.

Someone using an "Ad Hom Defense" would do so because they are unable to address the arguments which we have stated that lead us to believe you are in fact idiots.
