Ouch. Do you think there would be more of an advantage to this list if we
had some journal-style arm which would incorporate whole articles and be
committee-mediated? I'm not casting aspersions upon current postings'
objectivity or scientific nous; I'm just finding it very difficult to
handle what are often discontinuous arguments and it would be appreciated
if there was some extensive and well-argued investigation of each members'
interests and research. The "election-methods-journal" might be a group
mediated message board somewhere, or even on "e-groups."

It might get the Mike's deluded little "academic authors" to pay
