I said that offensive truncation, offensive order-reversal, and defensive 
truncation are present in all the best methods, including the very best.

I should clarify that offensive truncation is not a concern in any of the 
best methods, including wv, and including any marginally better methods that 
are possible.

In all those better methods, from wv on up, offensive truncation doesn't 
work against a candidate who has majority support against the truncator's 

What I meant to say, then, was that all the best methods share the same 
defensive strategy properties of wv.
