Help, what does "ad-hominem" mean?...

...How you didn’t know this I don’t know yet it’s probably due to you not paying attention during your school years and that’s probably because you don’t have the mental capacity

Thanks to those who explain "ad-hominem" and providing the references of and without sarcasm.


Friend TB, all in jest. I just had to put an example at the end of my post and I wouldn’t have done it unless I knew the recipient was who he/she is. You’re a mench.

I could have put an emoticon at the end of it (and maybe should have) but that would have spoiled the joke. And it was a joke.
