There seems to be some confusion at present about what exactly "logic" is. Recent examples include talk about logical consistency and attention to logic.

This leads to a lot of confusion, and miscommunications result.
Consistency in one's reasoning can be due to many factors, such as intelligence, environment, experience in debates, education, rationality/irrationality, etc.
