Straw men fallacies are prevalent in discussions. They occur when one misrepresents the side one opposes to make it easier to defeat than it really is.

This is most easy when dealing with broadly-defined opponents who are not represented in the audience.

Examples:
> Those who promote capitalism just want to oppress the poor and control society.

> Those anti-capitalists are just against freedom and a hard work and want the state to own everything.

The idea is that you are putting up a fake, weak opponent made of straw, and beating it up, hoping others think you are beating down a real argument.

Unfortunately, we can often only see fallacies when they are used against us, and accept them when they are used against our opponents.

Solution: Listen to opponents. And argue against real arguments instead of ones you make up for the other side.

YOUTUBE-DL IS BACK 🎉 :boosts_ok_gay:

GitHub's response here is pretty phenomenal. They're working to reform the law, donating to the EFF and Software Freedom Law Center, and enacting specific strict policies specifically for DMCA takedown notices centered around §1201. Stellar job.

I have to reiterate how incredible this @starlabsltd@twitter.com Star LabTop Mk IV is. Running stock @elementary@twitter.com OS 5.1 out of the box. Extremely smooth trackpad—both physically and in software. Exceptional packaging, unboxing experience, and hardware quality. Super solid and well-built.
