  Bullshit - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Bullshit as an activity commonly occurs in situations where truth and accuracy are far less important than the ability to achieve a suitable response in the audience.
Bullshit does not necessarily have to be a complete fabrication; with only basic knowledge about a topic, bullshit is often used to make the audience believe that one knows far more about the topic by feigning total certainty or making probable predictions.
Bullshit is also used in the popular saying "money talks, bullshit walks" meaning that people who "do something" such as "put their money on the table", or "put up or shutup" will get more results than people who merely talk.

 NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Bullshit Detector
Bullshit Detector was the name of a series of compilation LPs put together by the punk band Crass and released on their Crass Records label.
The title Bullshit Detector was derived as a reference to the Clash song "Garageland" from their first LP The Clash.
The sound quality of the Bullshit Detector series was mixed, and was often very basic or poor as Crass would master the tapes directly to record without any additional production or enhancement.

 Jonathan Derbyshire: Raging Bull (updated)
‘On Bullshit’ is addressed, therefore, not only to Frankfurt’s colleagues, who will no doubt admire its virtuosity, but also to his fellow citizens, who should recognise the desirability, political as much as anything, of being able to tell the difference between a load of bullshit and a pack of lies.
Moreover, the dictionary definition of ‘bullshit’, which is 'to intimidate, deceive, or persuade somebody with deceitful or foolish talk', closely resembles Black’s definition of ‘humbug’: ‘deceptive misrepresentation, short of lying, especially by pretentious word or deed, of somebody’s own thoughts, feelings, or attitudes’.
And bullshit spreads, he argues, when we start to believe that it is the ‘responsibility of the citizen in a democracy to have opinions about everything’ and when we come to regard knowing oneself as more important than accurately representing the world; when sincerity trumps truth.

Indeed, a finely tuned bullshit detector is a survival trait in the information age.
Ad hominem, in all its manifestations, can be very useful when preaching to the choir, and you tend to see its heavy use among advocates for embattled minority positions who are trying to stem losses among their supporters.
It's much less successful when one is on the attack and attempting to woo the undecided or to seduce supporters from the other side, because for most of us it tends to set off our bullshit detectors and make us wonder what the advocate is truly up to.
