"one should be able to objectively examine the argument and decide whether or not that's true."

100% agree, but I have found that when people bust out "Straw Man!" as their response, it's often because they don't want to examine the argument. In this thread alone, straw man was tossed out with the insistence that no one was talking about replacing live theater with streamed theater, even though someone had totally written how excited they were to replace live theater with streaming theater.

And that's just the low hanging fruit, lol.
