I'm having a net debate and the person is raving about how pathetic my argument is rather than explaining why it is a pathetic argument. I believe its a logical fallacy but I'm not sure.


This looks like an appeal to ridicule because it does not involve attacking you personally (so its not ad hominem). Begging the question is another possibly-relevant type of circular argument.
