Well - they could be helped to make up their minds by interactive ballots
or what I call "automatic preference interview" at the GrouCho site. I
think it is not too difficult to answer simple questions like "When you
consider A and B, can you decide which is better?" by clicking either "A
is better", "B is better", "They're equally good", or "I cannot decide"...
