I am reminded of this good heuristic by Dennett for spotting weak 
arguments: look for the word "surely".

An opponent in a debate once pointed out to me and the audience that I 
was clearly a bioethicist since I was using the word "we" (as in "should 
we enhance ourselves?") - bioethicists always do that, dragging everyone 
into their universalistic grouping.
