Why do skeptics cite the 'No True Scotsman' fallacy?

Why do skeptics cite the 'No True Scotsman' fallacy on every situation in which the genuineness of someone is?

I'm not aware of any skeptics here using it. My impression was the op was insinuating that skeptics in general use the fallacy.

It's polite to present examples when such an assertion is claimed. That allows everyone to see for themselves whether or not the the assertion is true. If not this thread won't move any further especially if the poster doesn't return.

hmm, I note the 'Fallacies' button and page above, but it would be interesting to blend in some of those classic identified philosophical and epistemological fallacies into the discussion to prove how age old they are and how they are still being used.

Like the classic ProfWag line, 'as soon as I saw x on that website, I refused to read any further'... that one must have a name...

The OP can be interpreted a couple of ways since it really isn't a complete sentence. If OP comes back maybe they can clarify.

Actually, I was saying the opposite - he DIDN'T make a logical fallacy there! ;)
