Trouble with the rational argument flowchart: on the internet, one usually encounters cocky undergrads who just ran across these ideas last week in their philosophy 101 class. Present them with a complicated argument and watch them skip to the you-cheated square, because they think they've discovered the eternal laws of thinking and don't get the many applications, exceptions, corner cases, etc.

Yeah. That's not really a problem with the flowchart, but just one of the many explanations on why people keep shorting to the "you cheated" square. =\
