Post a link to your example on the Week #3 Discussion Board. Post by Thursday at 11:59 pm. DO NOT IDENTIFY THE FALLACY!

Reply by identifying the logical fallacy posted and explain how the fallacy operates. Reply by Sunday at 11:59 pm.
Spend time reviewing some of the other examples found.
Note: Ad hominem fallacies are the easiest to identify. Please challenge yourself and your classmates by finding another type of fallacy as your example.
