I have noticed the repeated use of a very dishonest debate tactic. The tactic is taking a statement from an opponent and isolating it from the context in which it is found and then proceeding to dismantle it without regard to the actual context it is placed in by their opponent. Of course, a piecemeal approach is necessary as many posts can be long, but the evil is not the piecemeal approach but with how that statement is treated with regard to its actual context. The evil is not merely isolating the statement, but isolating it from its context when dealing with it. This piecemeal isolated approach can dismantle and destroy any argument no matter if the argument is as solid as the rock of Gibraltar. It is pure sophistry rather than a show of real knowledge. Indeed, it is used by those who can't deal with an argument and so they destroy the argument by this isolation tactic.
