***Yes, sometimes people call "straw man" because it lets them off the hook of questioning their own point of view; far easier to presume that the other person is being conniving and stupid than to consider that they're being genuine and reflective.****

I'm sure some people sometimes do that, but as far as I'm concerned, the rules are clear as to what constitutes (or not) a straw man argument, and those rules are not a matter of opinion.
