Ahh, arguing on the Internet. Whether it's about politics, religion, culture or science, if you're anything like me you've had 1000 online arguments and changed the mind of exactly nobody. Still, it's fun to exercise those debating muscles, and now with the handy website thou shalt not commit logical fallacies you have the perfect riposte to any invalid, inappropriate or just plain wrong argument (click for the full version):
Someone impugning your character instead of responding to your well-reasoned point? Send 'em over to Ad-Hominem land. Asking you to prove a negative, that they introduced? That's not where the burden of proof lies, buddy. You might say that no true debater would use a tool like this, but I say that's just moving the goalposts.
Each of the fallacies comes with a pithy example. (Begging the Question: "The word of Zorbo the Great is flawless and perfect. We know this because it says so in The Great and Infallible Book of Zorbo's Best and Most Truest Things that are Definitely True and Should Not Ever Be Questioned."). You can find all of the fallacies and examples by downloading the poster, which comes under a sharing-friendly Creative Commons license.

Have a great weekend!
