    Ideological/logical fallacies

    Okay, I know there are a lot of people here who are very well versed in the finer points of logical arguments. A co-worker forwarded this to me earlier and I got such a kick out of reading it, and the fallacies contained therein, that I thought I would post it up here.

    I should state, in the interest of disclosure, that I am an MLS-holding librarian, though not a member of the ALA (which I probably should be, but I'm lazy like that).

    How many logical fallacies can you find in his article (repetitions count)?
    I'll hold off saying how many I found so as not to jinx anything. And a belated thanks to whoever posted that link to nizkor.org's fallacies page...it helped.
    Why? Two reasons. Because someone has to, and because I can.

    Hmmm I suspect that you are a dangerously na´ve or clandestinely seditious librarian and should be dragged out and shot.

    That'll teach those GQ styled terrorists a lesson, oh yes.
