The Taxonomy of Logical Fallacies... Tagged

At The Fallacy Files Website, an extensive taxonomy of fallacies may be found. Based from Drew Curtis's Fark.com, a user idsfa maintains a gallery of cute labels to illustrate and summarize the nature of these fallacies. (There are a few other people whose contributions I've added.) This page is created to facillitate identifying the relationship between the illustrated fallacies, and to encourage idsfa to get around to eventually completing this (silly) illustration process.

Illustrations are linked to where idsfa was last noticed storing them; the actual pictures are mirrored on this server. Where fallacies were not in the original taxonomy, I have added them according to my best judgement. Text links go back to the original information at the Fallacy Files.

See also this, for contrast.
