Humbug hunting in bad faith

No way in the world was Gary Curtis referring to us with this post:

Too often, fallacy hunters set out to find fault with the arguments of those whom they disagree with, and whose conclusions they want to reject, instead of looking for flaws in their own arguments and those whose conclusions they wish to believe. In this way, looking for fallacies becomes a way of reinforcing prejudices, rather than correcting errors and strengthening arguments, as it should be.

That would be acting in Bad Faith!
