We’ve all been there; you stated your position on a point, dragged out all the facts and figures and citations, made it as clear as you can….. and someone completely misses the point and Straw Man’s you: you never said what they say you said, you never meant what they say you meant, and you never saw it coming because you thought you were clear as crystal.
What is ‘Straw Manning’, how was it done to us, and how do we call it out without breaking “Wheaton’s Rule” in the process?
