that was straw-man reply, autofocus was implied by the premise.

How does that translate into non native English?

Mr Bruno,

a "straw-man" argument in Logic is one that mistakes the other person's argument. See below...

The phrase derives from a straw-man being easy to knock down.

Thanks for the lesson, I've always fallen for idiomatic expressions.
This is a good resource BTW: http://www.usingenglish.com/reference/idioms/s.html
