Unless you consider it "offensive", "blather", and "idiotic crap"
to ask how you define "voting systems", I would like to ask how
you define "voting systems."

By the way: In your 9 Jan 2002 mail, you asked me which "method"
meets IIAC. You didn't ask me which "voting system" meets IIAC.
So if e.g. a "voting method" implies the Pareto criterion due to
your definition of "voting methods", then you should have asked
which method meets both Pareto and IIAC. Otherwise you must not
be angry when the answer doesn't satisfies you.
