Bullying

“‘Bulverism’; that is, finding in someone’s social location or other interests a hidden motivation that supposedly invalidates all their reasoning.”

"Bulverism, in all my experience, is never satisfied. Those who resort to it have never given me any evidence that they think their opponents can be won over, only derided, defeated, and destroyed. In fact, resorting to Bulverism is itself a declaration that efforts at persuasion have been judged useless or unnecessary. Rhetorical bludgeoning is the only tool left." - Mark Ward: Answering Moe the Internet Bully
