The part after "We've only said that.." logically implies that either:
(1) "IRV is evil" , or
(2) "Plurality isn't evil, or is only slightly evil".
Since when does "not a significant reform or not a significant improvement
over Plurality" mean "evil".
Plurality is the worst voting system of all (Well, Borda is worse in some
ways), but if you're going to go around saying that Plurality is evil,
people aren't goinig to take you seriously. That would be regreettable,
because, not listening to you, they wouldn't find out how undesirable a
voting system Plurality is, and its adverse affect on democracy.
