An indirect appeal to authority is still a fallacious argument. There are other folks here with at least the same claim to "authority," so this sort of nonsense won't play well.
When speaking of various forms of non-monogamy...it ain't poly if you're just fucking around.
While polyamory, open relationships, and swinging are all distinctly different approaches to non-monogamy, they are not mutually exlusive. Folks can, and some do, engage in more than one of them at a time--and it's all good.
