Hair-trigger accusations of pedophilia. Usually, this accompanies a "you're with us or you're with the pedophiles" false dichotomy style of thought, not unlike "you're with us or you're with the terrorists."

Alt: pedohysteria
Person: Can we please have a rational discussion about the consequences of running a sex offender list?

Pedohysterics: Why? That sounds like something a pedophile would say. Only pedophiles and pedo apologists would want a list like that gone.

The feeling which occurs after one has stayed up past his sleep cycle such that the body has abandoned its "go to sleep" feeling and has shifted into a light buzz.

It is comparable to the lingering buzz that remains in the morning after a night of drinking, because the body is rather awake yet clearly not fully sober.
KATE: John, go to bed. Aren't you sleepy? You were dozing off at your desk a few hours ago.

JOHN: Yeah, but the sleepy part of my cycle is over. It's back into awake mode, so I'm lanked now.

A conflict or argument made to convince the people watching the conflict, rather than the person being confronted.
Shouting about how much of a jerk someone is will not convince that person, but it can be used as a show conflict to convince the people watching you shout at that person.

Show arguments / show conflicts are for the audience, not the attackee.

Attempts to refute an argument by showing that it matches a pattern of behavior typical of a person or group. What makes something right or wrong is the set of reasons for it, not the ability to recognize that it exists. (Can also be thought of as argument by pattern-matching.)

"You match a pattern of behavior or stereotype that I have described, therefore you are wrong."
Libertarian bingo, liberal bingo, feminist bingo, MRA bingo, and pretty much any bingo card refutation are examples of bingo arguments.

An insincere and self-promoting post on another's Facebook wall intended for a public audience, in spite of the wall's one-on-one nature.

This is usually done to advertise traits which when put in the direct form of a status update would make the poster's motives far too transparent.
KATE: Why did Christina post "you're the best. LOVE LOVE LOVE." on my facebook wall? She hasn't talked to me in five months and it's not my birthday.

MARK: She probably wants everyone to think she's the type of girl who is tight with her friends, and people would call her on it if it were a status update.

KATE: A proxy wallpost? Seriously?
