I'm currently engaged in a debate where the opposing party has said:
"I'm right because I've written 1000 blog posts on this issue. Go read them before replying"
Is there a name for this technique/fallacy? I realize it's an "argument from authority", but I'm looking for something more specific.
The general idea is that, instead of arguing the subject directly, you claim the opposing party has insufficient knowledge, and tell them they should read a timeconsuming corpus before responding.
Note: this isn't the same thing as saying "we've already answered this argument in these 3 posts" or "read the FAQ", since, in both cases, you're directing the opposing party to short, specific documents.
The technique/fallacy I'm looking for is the one that intends to overwhelm the opposing party with the quantity of documents, with the implication the opposing party is unqualified to continue arguing until he/she has read the large quantity of documents.
