Thanks for corrections in quote! Much obliged :).
As of thinking in binary, maybe a bit but it rarely hurts me. In this case, perhaps it could seem like I'm trying to be unnecessarily thick but it is pretty close to my stance. I know that not everything is binary, however I don't really 'feel' one fallacy as better or worse than the other. Some are a bit harder or annoying to deal with, and if that's the case I would agree with you completely.
