That's a slight mischaracterization of what I wrote. I wrote,
referring to the voter Moulin labelled 'i':
"... So we must infer that Moulin meant either that i would
vote sincerely or that we would measure compliance by i's
But in a practical sense, participation is about ensuring voters
won't regret voting, and presumably this means sincere regret,
which would be based on sincere preferences.
If Moulin wants to ensure voters won't regret *sincere* voting
then he should prefer other methods more than Borda.
