Mr. Ossipoff wrote in part-

The reason why Nurmi's manipulability hierarch is garbage
is because the academic authors seem to be idiots on that
D- Perhaps Mr. Nurmi and other academic authors should be on the EM list to
defend their academic works between the hammer of Mr. Ossipoff and the anvil
of Demorep !!!

As I have mentioned a few times an election method, for public elections at
least, must work on the votes cast on election day (and not on academic
replays with changed votes or added or subtracted voters that produce all
sorts of strange criteria). 

The academic mania for having manufactured replays is why a large percentage
of election method academic works are irrelevant for public elections.
