|Today's article is called How to Win Arguments as an Internet Tough Guy. Here's an excerpt:|
In order to win a face to face argument, you need a strong grasp of the language, extensive knowledge in the subject matter, and a good understanding of logic. Arguments on the internet require none of those things. People who can barely speak your language can beat you in an argument. People who have only the most basic notion of what you're talking about can make you look foolish. And people who don't even know what the word "logic" is can defeat you, because these arguments are not about facts or logic or knowledge at all. Instead, the person who wins arguments on the internet does so through the cunning use of fallacies. Arguments that appear to be logical in nature but are not. This article will explain the most common fallacies and how to apply them in order to win any argument no matter how ridiculous.
