You wrote, and even highlighted, "An ad hominem is character assassination at the omission of rebuttal."

An ad hominem can be used in addition to some rebuttal in an attempt to bolster it.

What you wrote is at odds with that.

Can you put that into form?

I have no idea what you mean.

Construct an example of an ad hom which also offers a rebuttal.

I see. Offer a rebuttal to person A, then liken that which you rebuked's awfulness to the likes of person B's arguments. Person B's character (ability to reason) has been questioned, but he presented no argument himself.

A and B are not people, they are statements.

In your post, I recognise that Aand B are people. In my post they aren't. I do agree with your construction, btw.

Edit: not people, I meant.

Edit2: and that in mine they ARE. lol.
