Goalpost moving
Obviously a tactic. The most obvious example is asking for an instance where information or genetic diversity increases. And then when such an instance is provided, arguing that this still does not account for macroevolution, when the original question was not about macroevolution, but about information increase. I haven't been here long, but I must have seen that one at least four times.

Behe
Just noticed one that Behe uses in his book. Maybe seen it here, but it's hard to judge because the creationist actually has to have a defined position in order to use this one.
Make arguments against creationism (or ID, in Behe's case). The response you get is not a defense of ID or creationism, but "Well, that still doesn't prove why evolution is true." It may not, but that doesn't change the fact that the argument is still a problem for ID.
