Examples of Bad Faith

The advocate knowingly takes an unprincipled position or carries out an unprincipled action while disingenuously claiming to be motivated by principle.
Bad Faith is similar in nature to many other types of humbug, but the key difference is that the advocate is knowingly acting in an unprincipled fashion - out of pure self-interest. Before accusing an advocate of Bad Faith, it is important to ensure one is not merely Impugning (their) Motives (as much fun as that is).
