Umm, about number 1 - what if the debater is comparing neo-nazis to the original nazis?
About number 2 - a Wiki can be correct, just do independent fact checking. You should be doing that regardless of what source you are quoting.
And number 3 - just plain ignorant. What if the debate is about some point of theology? What? Everyone is wrong as soon as they mentioned an outside reference?
Think before you post, man. Overstating claims like yours is a more sure-fire way of losing any debate then your list.
