I can see this now, too.  Worsening someone's score could happen
to make a preferred candidate into the winner.  That is surely why
random filling always makes more sense than truncation.

I reply:

Not always. If there's a danger or likelihooid of offensive order-reversal, 
and you want to deter it, then leave out of your ranking the candidate(s) 
whose voters are considering offensive order-reversal. Announce before the 
election that you are doing so and that you ask others to do so.
