After reading your arguments, it's clear that what we've 
talked about on this list in the past with regards to 
sincere and strategic CR voting has been in the context of 
zero-information cases vs. high-quality information cases, 
assuming that we'd either be dealing with one or the other. 
We weren't really thinking much about low-quality 
information cases. It's always good to have someone come 
along with fresh insight on these matters, so thanks!
