Oh, please! Don't tell me you guys don't know this one!
The Sycophant Card is a tactic that involves one person (Prima) accusing someone (Secunda) of being a Sycophant of another person (Tertitia) when Secunda agrees with the statement of Tertitia.
The "flow of action" is basically:
1. Prima and Tertitia are in a flamewar.
2. Secunda agrees with Tertitia.
3. Prima calls Secunda a sycophant/lackey/minion/whatever of Tertitia.
4. Another flamewar ensues.
The only problem with this tactic is: IT DOESN'T DO ANY "DAMAGE". Especially not if it's played over and over again, even after the theory of "Prima" has been refuted. _________________ Chaos Revenant:
