1. Unknown candidates lose.  There should be a way to distinguish
between candidates who have a consensus, and those who are simply in the
middle because the most popular candidates are also the most hated.

2. If "most hated" candidates are to be excluded, there should be a way
to distinguish truly hated candidates from those who are ranked last
merely because they compete with the voter's favorite -- in other words,
there should be no advantage to insincerely ranking a competitor last.
