I don't have to support my argument, since I am asking for those who claim
Condorcet methods are "better" to support the claim that those methods are
"like" Nx(N-1)/2 different elections. They are not, unless I get to make
Nx(N-1)/2 choices, which I don't get to do.
The burden of proof is not upon me. I distrust all Condorcet methods, unless
and until someone has a good reason to like one of them other than "I like
it, so you should, too!"

No, I ignore nothing. I only continue to be attacked for pointing out that
the emporor is naked.
