Two rakan -- only one focal point

My username is derived from Enkyo (延慶?), which was a Japanese era name (年号, nengō,?, lit. "year name") in the Kamakura period after Tokuji and before Ōchō. This time frame spanned the years from October 1308 through April 1311. The reigning emperor was Hanazono-tennō (花園天皇?)

Graham's Hierarchy of Disagreement-en.svg
The pyramid graphic posted at WP:DR is the only image on the page. The specific wording of the pyramid graphic makes it helpful. The graphic suggests a hierarchy among common argument strategies:
  1. Refuting the Central Point refutes the central point
  2. Refutation finds the mistake and explains why its mistaken using quotes
  3. Counterargument contradicts and then backs it up with reasoning and/or supporting evidence
  4. Contradiction states the opposing case with little or no supporting evidence
  5. Responding to Tone criticizes the tone of the writing without addressing the substance of the argument
  6. Ad Hominem attacks the characteristics or authority of the writer without addressing the substance of the argument
  7. Name calling sounds something like, "You are an ass hat."

At WP:DR, the image caption is an hortatory command: "Stay in the top three sections of this pyramid."
