Wiki puts it as
pquote]An ad hominem argument, also known as argumentum ad hominem (Latin, literally "argument to the man") or attacking the messenger, is a logical fallacy that involves replying to an argument or assertion by attacking the person presenting the argument or assertion rather than the argument itself.[/quote]
This is used as a reason by many bloggers, reputed sites to ban people. I am just wondering if CW is doing this. If not, why? I know at least one user (who I specified to Neil) who falls into not debating a point more often than not.
I hope the moderators, James can look into this aspect because attacking a messenger doesn't add to a forum. Rather, it takes away from the forum. CW is a great place and I believe looking into this aspect can make it even a better place.
