Baeclast #61 - A tool for all of us and a cautionary tale

I mean... slippery slope arguments aren't inherently fallacious; they're logical if the risk of slippage is real, essentially.

A fallacy is the use of invalid) or otherwise faulty reasoning, or "wrong moves"[1] in the construction of an argument.A fallacious argument may be deceptive by appearing to be better than it really is. Some fallacies are committed intentionally to manipulate or persuade by deception, while others are committed unintentionally due to carelessness or ignorance.

The effective use of a fallacy may be considered clever, but the reasoning should be recognized as unsound and the conclusion regarded as unproven.

Chris obviously thinks the slippage risk is real. What reason do you have reason to believe it isn't? I think that's the argument you should be making (I don't see that in your statements) if you want to convince people of whatever you're trying to convince them of (?).

I honestly couldn't follow. Are you saying that somehow Baeclast / GGG meetings should become some sort of exercise in formal logic? or it's simply a challenge to me to test the arguments? either way I just find it tedious AF atm.

I think you can better understand the point by reading this:

  • To Chris: ... " write a couple of PRO/CON arguments and when you are done check the List of fallacies crossing-out every argument that is a logical fallacy".
  • To GGG staff: You guys need to split into two teams. A team with arguments in favor and a team with arguments against the agenda. Each team needs to beware of the opposing team's arguments. At the end every team needs to curate their arguments and make sure no logical fallacies have been made. You all need to be keenly aware that the framing sets up everything.

I'm not sure if this is yet another ad hominem (to shift the light away from the topic) or if you are truly interested in a formal logic example.

If you truly looking for a logic example I find that tedious. I might abide but first you need to answer some questions so I understand the basic ground rules:

  • How is it a slippery slope to add something that's already in the game (Azurite/Harvest organs)?
  • Items = Currency & Essence & Fragments & Oils & Prophecy & Uniques & Shards & Scrolls.... Are all these things items? So in your mind an alteration shard is an item in the same way a mirror of kalandra is an item... like there is no spectrum and no distinction?

There two answers... so I can start tackling your formal logic test ( ̄︶ ̄)↗
