1. I accept that I am under the control of a higher power (Muppet).

Is there a name for this kind of thinking?

Don't make harmless anonymous comments about people getting arrested because someday you might make non-anonymous comments about people getting arrested.

Don't include outside links to dancing bananas because someday you might include outside links to child porn.

Do not allow a camel to put his nose under the edge of your tent, for soon you will have a camel in your tent.

I agree, it feels like it must fit into the 'logical fallacy' group of arguments somewhere.

mind you, its so breathtakingly stupid maybe the logicians who put together the list didn't think it was worth mentioning..

It's "slippery slope" with a lobotomy.

Don't broadcast personal information obtained in confidence because it will excite people's curiosity to dig for more details and more may come out than was originally said.

Don't deep link to images on other web sites without permission because it is rude, and may cause "waiting for..." messages that slow the loading of the page.

I tend to judge comments by the source. And when the source has a long, rich track history of:
- abusing people
- showing no consideration whatsoever for the feelings of others
- being a total ass
- treating a public forum as his personal playground
- being a complete hypocrite
- being totally unable to admit he's wrong

Then I'm willing to just point and say "that was a stupid fucking thing to do, you moron" without even knowing what we're talking about, because it's probably true.

"Don't broadcast personal information obtained in confidence because it will excite people's curiosity to dig for more details and more may come out than was originally said. "

How may that happen?

Again, this is slippery slope with a lobotomy.  It's a fallacy.  You are hens.

somehow, the inet caused the worst in (some) people to come out. They don't think, there's nobody to confront them on a spot. But we all now that...or do we
