re: this bullshit
- the definition of poisoning the well
- another definition, this time of the appeal to emotion
- an explanation of the ad hominem fallacy fallacy
- a discussion of the problems with the phrase “you haven’t walked in my shoes”
Please keep these in mind the next time you respond to your co-workers. All employees of Blogosphere LLC need to ensure that they maintain a civil tone while corresponding with their fellow employees; don’t let your emotions blind you. Try arguing through your pain next time instead of freaking out.
I’d hate for this to become an issue during your annual review, but I’ll be forced to if you continue to foster this environment of tremendous personal hostility.
See you at the budget review!
