Ad Hominem Fallacy

Ad Hominem Fallacy is a type of mistake people make when they are trying to make a point or prove something. This mistake is when someone uses a person's character or background to try and prove that their point is true, instead of using facts. This is not a good way to prove a point because it doesn't take into account the actual facts that support the argument. People should always make sure to use real facts and evidence when making an argument.
