Is this also called The "Golden mean" fallacy?--TheLateGatsby (talk) 21:46, 20 August 2012 (UTC)

Yup, also the middle ground, false compromise, or gray fallacy. Tisane (talk) 22:08, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
We have an article on the balance fallacy. How is this different from that? Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 22:15, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
It's a bit different. The balance fallacy says that all views are equally valid. The argument to moderation says that the moderate view is best. Tisane (talk) 22:20, 20 August 2012 (UTC)
