    I mostly avoid whipping out knowledge of logical fallacies during actual arguments in favor of just trying to explain why what's being said doesn't work in my mind, partially to avoid the temptation to treat the labels as trump cards and use them incorrectly in the process as I often see others do, and to avoid derailing discussions into debates about argumentative structure...
