The irony here is your "rebuttal" is a straw man argument.
Not directed at any particular poster but at the topic as a whole, it's still a Straw Man argument. In this case there is no particular poster but rather a position that you are misrepresenting or substituting for something else.
The position (whether or not it is voiced by any single poster) of the opposition is that only a jerk-off would systematically refuse to tip for service rendered by someone working on a gratuity wage system. This is, of course, assuming that the service didn't suck.
You have misrepresented this position to be something else entirely.
Granted the rebuttal was also a Straw Man argument, although it wasn't really an argument, so maybe it was a Straw Man comment?
