Maybe you should look up the definition:
ad hominem, is an argument made personally against an opponent, instead of against the opponent's argument
Or maybe you need to learn to read. lol can you not read?
Maybe you should look up the definition, you dumbass. Place it in the context of logic, because it is a logical fallacy
An example of an ad hominem is the following argument, either explicit or implied: You are wrong because you are stupid.
This is not an ad hominem: You are stupid. [Argument follows, which is entirely detachable and independent from the previous personal attack.]
When determining whether something is an ad hominem, remove the insult and consider whether there is still an argument. If so, it is not an ad hominem, because no logical fallacy exists. However, if the insult is part of the argument, it is an ad hominem because the logical argument cannot stand on its own absent the insult.
Do you understand this, you dumb f
uck? (notice how this question is detachable and irrelevant to the above argument. It is therefore, not an ad hominem because the insult has no bearing or relation to my overall argument--I'm just being an ass. I have committed no logical fallacy
