    • Being able to label a concept or thing implies an understanding of it.
    • For example, if I knew the latin name of a species it would be reasonable to think that I knew other things about that species.
    • Thus the skillful use of labels can give the impression of a well informed argument or rebuttal.
  • Starboard:
    • But, they are just labels. A label isn't actually a valid argument.
  • Port:
    • Yes it is. The Potsworth defense will not work against me.
