Another flaw in monotonicity

In violent movements your worst enemy is likely
to be close to you not far away. If someone


It is likely that A and G will be trivially
different people in the same movement.

When they judge figure skaters the high and
low scores are discarded. This means people
who would have voted a 10 may say 9.9 to
prevent having their votes thrown away. 
Dishonest voting.

Since the system is easy to change the fact
that it is kept means it must be broadly seen
as working well. Indeed I haven't heard anyone
suggest a change in that rule.
