     False.  The process of Dharma Battle follows strict guidelines of
logic which may not be stepped out side of.  If the person is debating in
good faith, they will not step outside of those lines, if their intentions
are bad, they will, they can not stay inside them. 

     Dharma Treason is very easy to spot.

     Dreamball: OT powers exist.
      Meatball: No one has ever demonstrated OT powers  (Dharma Treason)
     Dreamball: You don't know that.
      Meatball: Can YOU move the marble?
     Dreamball: No
      Meatball: See that proves it!  (Dharma Treason)
     Dreamball: No it proves nothing, even if I could move the
                marble I probably wouldn't as it would scare the
                shit out of you.
      Meatball: Oh that's silly, why would I be scared of powers
                that don't exist!  (Dharma Treason)

     Is the meatball stupid or evil?

     Dharma Treason is very easy to spot and immediately tells that the
person is either a non functioning mind, or is trying to confuse onlookers
hoping they don't notice.
