    I. Argumentum ad Hominem (abusive and circumstantial) : the fallacy of attacking the character or circumstances of an individual who is advancing a statement or an argument instead of trying to disprove the truth of the statement or the soundness of the argument. Often the argument is characterized simply as a personal attack.
    A. The personal attack is also often termed an 'ad personem argument': the statement or argument at issue is dropped from consideration or is ignored, and the locutor's character or circumstances are used to influence opinion.
    B. The fallacy draws its appeal from the technique of 'getting personal.' The assumption is that what the locutor is saying is entirely or partially dictated by his character or special circumstances and so should be disregarded.

    OK, you think it's 'kinda stupid' or 'strange and wild indeed'! Which appraisal is the mosr absurd? Does no one read Lewis Carroll these days? Diana and Kevin evidently do not, they dwell in the land of the smug and the smurf! Loosen up and lighten up, you prigs and enjoy! What the devil is the 'fantasist interrupted by the mundane', Mr. Straw? (Report) Reply

    Strange and wild indeed. But the story is the fantasist constantly interrupted by the mundane. (Report) Reply

    Sort of a sideshow to the MAD HATTERS TEA PARTY. What more can you say about a imaginative genius writer. (Report) Reply
