Which rules don't apply, and why don't they?
I never said it wasn't. I said before that I usually use my 'own' sound judgement instead of pointing out fallacies.<quoted text>
If you form an opinion that a person's argument fits into the category of a particular logical fallacy, how is that not judgment?
Do you have a topic you want to talk about other than argue about arguments?
