Some Excellent Advice From a liberal Progressive

Shaw, over at Progressive Eruptions, gave some advice for her commenters but it is also some great advice for all of us bloggers whether we be the owner of a blog or just a commenter on someone’s blog. Writing an essay as well as commenting on a blog is one thing but we should all be aware of the fact that it should be a logical argument and abide by the rules of logic.

We must realize that while an appeal to emotion may, at times, be a good argument it can never be considered as a logical argument. A good emotional appeal is used to get a person to react emotionally. A good logical argument is meant to be used to give a person something to think on before reacting. When we fully understand this we can know what type of argument we need to use and when to use a particular form of argument.

So, my friends, we need to think before we react, especially when discussing certain emotionally charged issues, and always beware of fallacies in our own arguments as well as others. If we do there is no doubt in my mind that our experience in the blogosphere will be far more pleasant for everyone.

    Well, no argument from me…

    awwww, shuckens, BB, and here I thought I wrote something we could have one of our old fashion rip-roaring debates on too. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m thinking Griper, that opinion without bias is not only rare, but
    likley quite boring. So, in the interest of controversy, I’ll point out that my bias is at least as good as your bias. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. The Griper

    now you got me, my friend, i can’t think of an argument against that. ๐Ÿ™‚

    are we agreeing that bias is good then even when our society is trying to wipe it out?

Be respecful or your comment will be deleted. Also know that Alinsky tactics do not phase me
