Don't forget that the no-show paradox is closely related to (in fact is 
an aspect of) the consistency problem. If B is elected, but removing a 
handful of A supporters (say, by disqualifying their ballots) would 
cause A to be elected, can that be a good thing, generally speaking?

Not all methods have this problem. Approval doesn't.
