I'm not a fan of calling logical fallacy. Many 'fallacies' are correct axioms for exploratory reasoning, or necessary shortcuts when dealing with the colossal complexity of the real world (as are emotions).

I've seen people abuse the term fallacy to just be a dick and flaunt their 'intellect' a bit too often, even erroneously.
