Pulling a "James S. Fell" is when someone thinks he/she/they/zey/zorg is "educating the masses" but is in fact only proving to everyone that they are a misinformed idiot (IQ under 85) who is incapable of doing basic research that isn't twisted by their own ideology.
Being incapable of using well formed logical arguments supported by reliable data, they instead turn to shaming language and misinformation as their only means of attacking their opponent.
In other words "Pulling a Fell" is like the Dunning–Kruger effect, but with more name calling and moronic dribbling.

The term comes from "fitness guru" James Fell who has written many misinformed article about topics he is ignorant about, when he should be focusing on running in a straight line (something that takes all his concentration). It is unknown who taught him to use a keyboard, but it is rumored that with intensive help he is now capable of sometimes switching on his own computer by himself.
