I don't think it's wise to allow voters to vote intransitive
preferences. I don't agree with Hugh that there's something
significant which would be gained. And it would make voting
For instance, what do you make of the vote:
A>B, B>C, C>A
Is it more likely such a vote was a mistake or that the voter had an
unusual set of preferences?
