Thank you. I really HATE straw man arguments -- and what I hate most about them is that the person who makes such an argument assumes the people who hear it will be stupid enough not to realize it is, in fact, a straw man argument.
Someone tried this on me recently, and let's just say I did not react well, to put it mildly.
