I have noticed quite often that, in discussions on such products as NAET, CieAura, LifeWave, and so on, there tends to be a whole lot of repetition.  New people will show up, usually to sing the praises of whatever product that is being discussed.  And almost immediately they will fall into one of about a dozen different types of bad tactics.  It is as though they are given a script before signing up, and then blindly follow it from there on.  And every single time, it has to be explained why their arguments just don’t work.

So to save time, I’ve gone ahead and drawn up a description of some of the more common errors that people in these discussions fall into, and why the errors are errors.  Now, instead of having to write out a long reply every single time I run across such an error, I can just link to this page.

And perhaps some of these new people will take the time to read this before posting, and so will be able to avoid these errors right from the start.  Perhaps. . .

Thus, the list:
