Using Logical Fallacies in argument online is an Appeal To Authority

All human knowledge, no matter what anybody says, is either an appeal to authority or anecdotal. In fact, in a way, anecdotal is only a special case of appeal to authority where your own lived experience (or the lived experience of somebody else) is the authority. EVERYTHING is thus an appeal to authority, including the appeal to logical fallacy fallacy, which is of course, just an appeal to the authority of logical fallacies.
