I'll try to explain, so you can properly resent it.  :-)

"Rank one best, approve some others" doesn't provide the voters the
ability to express themselves as clearly as Condorcet+NOTB would.

What advantage does it have, other than possibly being easier for 
certain voters to comprehend?

I acknowledge it's not as "dumbed-down" as the status quo, but why 
advocate it when we can do better?
