My remarks were about MinMax (Pairwise Opposition), which elects the
candidate who minimizes the maximum votes against him in any pairwise
contest (be it victory or defeat).

I repy:

I thought you were referring to PC, because some people on this list call PC 

You see, this is why I've tried to discourage "MinMax" as a name for PC: 
"MinMax" is used with too many different meanings for it to be of any use as 
the name of a count method.
