And it was right about the time I got on EM and started learning a lot
about election methods too. What a coincidence, eh.
Wrong. You didn't achieve that complete transformation after learning on EM.
You achieved it pretty much instantaneously when denied permission to have
what I'd written. It wasn't a learning process. You began on EM with your

permission for you to have them there. And you've already demonstrated that
that is the case.
