100 voters.

Sincere preferences:

 41 39 20
  A  B  C

Actual votes (A voters insincerely order B & C):

 41 39 20
  A  B  C
  C     B


With Margins, A voters' strategy succeeds, & A wins.

With Votes-Against, because B voters truncated or were indifferent,
A doesn't win. A voters aren't punished, but at least they don't
succeed in defeating the CW & winning, as they do in Margins.
