It seems to me that insulting a person, or attempting to dehumanise an opponent, in the stead of addressing their points, however incompetent or themselves lacking in anything but fallacy they may be, would fit as an abusive style of Ad hominem, as it is attacking character, not presented arguments or contested statement.

Tourette's has no points to make, hence the name. It writes, but has no idea what it's writing.

However, when you failed to pick up on this, I was bored and one thing lead to another culminating in a game of "follow me!" by me making seemingly nonsense statements to which I know you would respond and thus 'follow'.

Yes I knew you were calling me out on it from the start. What is your point?

Assuming you knew the cause, and taking your apparently absolute disregard of it one can only assume that further interaction here is pointless in that you have no qualm about throwing insults at those you disagree with or otherwise ignoring them in a manner no better than that of an angry child.
Remarkably, Taq, Chippy and yourself are all quite similar. Consider

And now that's done, I need to find something else to do on the forum. Too bad there isn't much fun going around right now...

I thought the initial interaction was pointless, but that didn't stop you either so it's your call whether you continue here or not.

Tourette's Chimp has no substantive points to address. What it has posted that is minimally capable of being addressed has been addressed.

You obviously haven't looked sufficiently close else you wouldn't have made your initial (unnecessary) inquiry.

You say nothing, but incessantly chatter. Are you American or under 7?
