" You seem to be very narcissistic. How are you a true fan? How is your opinion any more legit than any other."

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I offer in evidence the testimony of the opposing counsel. Here is an ad hominem that attacks the questioner rather than answering the question. The idea that one should use one's own judgment to judge the strength or weakness of an argument is one never proposed in their rhetoric, only personal attacks.

In a column where I level the criticism that they hold a lack of judgment to be the sole measure of their moral goodness, a Morlock opens the portcullis of his mouth and lets escape the unreflective word that I must have some psychological malfunction, that is, being a narcissist, because I make a moral judgment. See?
