Perhaps it doesn't matter, but I operate several wikis, and I've
contributed to Wikipedia (though I'm certainly not a wiki expert). I don't
know why Mr. Araucana got the idea that I didn't understand this basic concept.
An unknown person changed the page and Mr. Araucana changed it back.
Happens all the time. Since he reported this here, I looked at the page and
made my comment here.

The whole page is not exactly a model of clarity, but I did think that I
understood what Definite Majority Choice meant. But here is how the text in
question reads now, having been changed back by Mr. Araucana:

So the least-approved candidate ... is the winner? Explain this thing to me....

Well, since Mr. Araucana thinks I'm a newbie to wikis, it is certainly
helpful for him to point out that I need to create an account on a wiki set
up that way -- and ones that aren't seem to become spam pages within a few
days -- but, of course, I'd have found this out for myself if I tried.

Actually, even stupid and ignorant comments can be very useful.
I do have comments to make, lots of them. But not yet.
