Abusing Bad Arguments

Having went through the short illustrated book of bad arguments, I introspected a bit and have discovered that, for sake of convincing and/or trolling, I tend to sometimes abuse the following types of arguments:
  • Straw Man, because it's the most effective and pretty easily made covert enough,
  • Equivocation, when I'm not particularly concerned with being exposed,
  • Hasty Generalization, which is the one I least commonly make on purpose,
  • Genetic Fallacy and Guilt by Association, because they hold true most of the time.

What are your favorites? :-)
