You are hereby forbidden to use the phrase Gish gallop. It is a false accusation tactic and fallacious dodge; it is an alleged fallacy is a polarising diversion and is a fallacy in its turn. It is an oil soaked straw ad hominem (or something).
You are forbidden to use this term under pain of a visit from Mr Leathers.

KF is a divine gift not only to Montserrat but to the whole world:

After the following brief introduction
In a recent comment clipped by GP in the Jerad thread, Keiths has used the rhetorically dismissive term “Gish Gallop.”

Let me cite:    
KS: . . . with gpuccio it is sometimes possible to zero in on the crux of a disagreement. You can’t do that with Gish Gallopers.
Now, as I will shortly show
he gallops another 1,191 words of thought salad.
With comments closed.

The best part is that KF, with his offense-o-meter set to "ultra hair-trigger", failed to notice that I was actually defending gpuccio from an accusation of Gish galloping.

What a useless twit KF is.
