I'm not clear how the two "You'll know it's a dangerous one if it kills you" examples are actually this fallacy. That is a way to distinguish dangerous from harmless (albeit one with obvious drawbacks), it doesn't require assuming the conclusion.

This is just one of a series of logical fallacy pages. It does not look like the "rant" mentioned in the cutlist entry to me.

Agreed. Unless "one-sentence clarification to avoid people misusing the trope" = "rant", now.

If it's a rant, then so are any and all "not to be confused with X" clarifications. Do we cut every page that has one of those now?
