Why are ad homimen arguments fallacious?

Debate Information

Some people just love to use those.
I often reply that they have used an informal logical fallacy, that it's obnoxious and that I no longer want to participate in our debate, or indeed, any conversation at all because I just don't like to be insulted.

    Ad hom. is a fallacy because it doesn't address or evaluate the argument. Instead, it amounts to "You're a poopy head therefore you're argument is false." One can be a poopy head AND have a valid argument.

    I agree.

    Some people in here will ONLY insult certain people who have "triggered" their automatic aggressive response.
