Red herring[edit]

The Red herring link in the template points to Ignoratio elenchi's very brief treatment - is there a reason for not linking it to Red herring's own article? --Shingra 11:36, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Two that do not belong here[edit]

Illusory correlation and the availability heuristic are not logical fallacies and are not typically presented as such in textbooks (not every principle of reasoning, or mistake people make in reasoning, is a fallacy). I'm going to revert their addition, but I'm open to them being restored if there is some source to justify it. MartinPoulter (talk) 01:30, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
