Spelling and grammar are things someone who is educated and has gone to college should quite adept at. Particularly given that the difference between your and you're is something you should have learned before high school.

Please continue thinking yourself brilliant because you have taken possible 1 or 2 Philosphy courses. Judging by the fact you cannot spell, it must not have been a very good college.

NO. Just no. Their motivation is irrelevant to the argument they use. It is the evidence that they present that matters. So even if you could prove they are the worst player on the planet; IT STILL WOULD NOT MATTER. It is the evidence they present in their argument that matters, you have to deal with that: not "if they are bad or not".

In logic this is what we call argument ad hominem, or "attack of the person". I know politicians do it all the time, I know in grade 6 school yard they do it, it is used all the time, but in LOGIC it is a fallacy.

Any time you use it: You FAIL.

Pretty substantial difference between making a typo and error of a single letter while thinking of something else and not knowing the difference your and you're.

Also a pretty substanial difference between you and i given that you are calling people uneducated and then showing yourself to be. Whereas i have not done the same.

How am I somehow thinking myself brilliant because I know about arugment ad hom??? Did I say this?? Like ever?? lol. Dude, just relax.

I am not brilliant, but I do know about a BASIC fallacy. Why isn't it that you don't agree with me?

I don't get it.

See no Latin.
I always thought the slippery slope fallacy was that "if you allow X then this will lead to Y" in situations where X does not lead to Y.
Specifically when X is something unimportant or acceptable and Y is something much more important and less acceptable.

I do however accept your OP as replying with L2P is lazy. The reply should of course be pointing out the abilities available to avoid getting roflstomped.
