In general, I am with you on this but:

What about when the argument labeled as "straw man" isn't straw at all?

Because as I note below, Dramedy seems to be saying that he finds watching theatre on his gigantic TV to be not only the same as an in-person theatrical experience but actually better. And Dramedy is not "no one."

This reminds me of a familiar exchange I used to have with my father when I was in high school and I wanted to stay out half the night with my friends. "Everyone's doing it," I would argue, to which he would respond, "No, you are not doing it, and you are a part of everyone, so what you say is incorrect."

Ah, adolescence. :-)
