"1)  While one could complain that disallowing cyclic preferences
unnecessarily restricts a voter's freedom of choice, somebody else could
complain that using ordinal preferences instead of cardinal ratings
restricts freedom of expression.  A voting method has to impose some type of
simplification on the information that a voter presents"


No one suggested that. All that was suggested that the claim that voters
preferences could be inferred from the pairwise matrix without regard to
what was on the voters ballots has not been substantiated.


Pointless anecdotes won't change that.
