Do you want to join what will become arguably the most annoying group on DDO (After spambots)? Then join the Fallacy Police! Your job is to roam the forums, opinion,polls and debates of this site giving people tickets for every time they commit a logical fallacy! Everytime you spot a fallacy bring the offender to any webpage that describes the fallacy commited.

IF you want to join then write your name in the list below (When the recruitment list is done I will message all members of the police via-private message)

It's good we have the fallacy police, so we can point to you guys and confirm something is fallacy based on the fact you said it is.

You don't need sources. Your authority as the fallacy police is enough.

We don't need a fallacy police. Posters like bluesteel, Raisor, popculturpoooka, and Envisage would make such an organization redundant. They already call out and humiliate users for their logical fallacies.

This post has four logical fallacies. It contains:

(1) An appeal to bluesteel fallacy
(2) An appeal to Raisor fallacy
(3) An appeal to popculturepooka fallacy
(4) An appeal to Envisage fallacy

Pshhhh. You fool. Those aren't fallacies at all! Appeals to authority are fine when the authorities in question are literally embodiments of divine perfection.

And, by the way, "appeal to bluesteel" rhymes, which is reason enough to consider it logically sound.
