I ended up writing to those people they listed as supporting IRV and 
got the following response back:

Thank you for your email message.

I looked at the links that you provided and am not persuaded.  However, if
you would like to provide a guest editorial arguing against IRV (less than
1,000 words) we will consider it for publication at our alternative daily
news web site.

You may also want to have a look at a previous essay we published, which
argues directly against one of the links that you provided:


Hanno T. Beck
banneker at progress.org
Banneker Center for Economic Justice

This person would at least seem to be willing to listen and I would 
encourage people, who are more knowledgeable in this area then I, to 
present credible counter-arguements.

How would you respond to:


for example?
