comment What is the term for accusing a person of mischief through invented, twisting and changeable terminology?
Causistry simply means using examples or "cases" to support an argument. The examples do not have to be terminology, nor are they necessarily invented or confusing.

comment When and how should I use multiple exclamation marks?
