[Election-Methods] RE : STV in the context of modeling voters

I didn't quite understand your post... In the first part of your post you
seemed to be discussing the strategy of selecting the candidate you want to
win. It didn't seem you were discussing the voting strategy once you know
what you want. So how could this become easier when you're allowed to rank
the candidates (whether with a LNHarm guarantee or without)? Surely it's
harder to form a ranking than to pick a single favorite?

For me, even a totally strategy-free method would not be acceptable if I
could not stand to the side as an observer and agree that the method gave
proper results.
