Any compound phrase, like "straw man" or "fully realized", is spelled witho=

When used as a unit modifier prior to a noun, it's hyphenated.
"The fallacy there is straw man."
"It is a straw-man argument."

"Somehow the fully-realized project never made a profit."
So while it is true that "straw man" is spelled without a hyphen when the h=
not required, that has no bearing on the misspelling that I called out.
I promise I will not try to correct you on fine points of non-English gramm=
