We once performed a poll on the wiki. There was also a separate mailing
list where this topic was discussed.

I think I'd have to update my answers somewhat.

There are a number of Condorcet methods that I would support even though I

seem to have an advantage in that it is hard to find other Condorcet
methods that satisfy criteria that they don't.
