Ad hominem is a type of logical fallacy where a person or group of people attack the moral standing of another person instead of refuting that other person's arguments. Ad hominem is a fallacy because the character of a person making an argument, good or bad, does not affect whether the arguments are logical or invalid. The character of the person arguing is irrelevant one way or the other.
