Graham's hierarchy of disagreement - Pyramid diagram
"Graham proposed a "disagreement hierarchy" in a 2008 essay "How to Disagree", putting types of argument into a seven-point hierarchy and observing that "If moving up the disagreement hierarchy makes people less mean, that will make most of them happier."
Although originally written as a simple list, Graham's hierarchy can be represented as a pyramid with the most convincing form of disagreement at the top, and the weakest at the bottom.
Graham notes that articulate forms of name-calling ("The author is a self-important dilettante.") are no different from crude insults, in this hierarchy." [Paul Graham (computer programmer). Wikipedia]
