What is the default fallacy for most, if not all formal debates? (read description)

Posted by: reece

I'll vote on the correct fallacy if someone puts it up. I'll add it if no one does.

@Diqiucun_Cunmin That's a good one but it's not a default. False dichotomies are subjective.

@reece: Was it among the ones I added?

Nope. When i said subjective i meant opinions on False dichotomies can vary.

It's the bare assertion fallacy, obviously.
reece says2015-06-09T20:16:41.3873573-05:00
@Varrack no...

The thumbnail is a huge clue.
Varrack says2015-06-09T20:19:36.7779104-05:00
What could it possibly be then?

Appeal to consequences is correct because both can agree that the other wants to win.
reece says2015-06-09T20:28:37.7765083-05:00
And both can agree that they want to win themselves.
