    “Uncharitable” is the one that annoys me. They’ve managed to twist the principle of charity into a cheap attack, by taking it to mean “framing my argument in a way I don’t like”, or even just “criticising my argument”.

    Also, don’t forget their latest buzzwords: “drama blogging” and “rage blogging”. They’re used to disguise the ad hominem fallacy (i.e. what you say can be dismissed because you’re angry and emotional) as a call for civility.

    Actually this one has been featured here once before – which is cool. I just want draw people’s attention to one of my personal favorietes that has thus far gone almost unnoticed. It was the second cartoon I did, and can be found here :)

    Back when Michael Nugent dipped his toes in, I tried my best to get them to be charitable. Very few could manage to do it for even one comment.

    It’s ironic isn’t it? Uncharitable only ever applies to people who disagree with them, who have a tone they don’t like; it never actually applies to them; the minute they’re uncharitable they’re magically making a ‘principled stand’ or some other such nonsense. Way to blast it Ophelia! =)
