The reason you don't know a term for that is that You've Never Seen ANYbody DO that. What you HAVE seen is people dismissing arguments as "bullshit" and "crank babble" AFTER rebutting them. But you personally are just SO FUCKING STUPID -- and prudish -- that the fact that the word "bullshit" occurred following the rebuttal PREVENTED you from parsing the rebuttal. That is, if your own stupidity didn't prevent it sooner.
