Basically its this:
Everything mentioned in my criteria is an obvious element of the situation.
FARCSs intended rankings (which, even in principle, couldnt be intended)
have no real-world interpretation.
The use of those fictitious rankings is very cumbersome and awkward,
roundabout and unnecessarily wordy, as shown in my presentation to JoAnn Q.
Theres nothing wrong with using votes-only criteria for comparing rank
methods, when you know that no nonrank method can pass anyway--when youre
doing it for your own information rather than to demonstrate a methods
merits to someone else.. For instance, I myself have made much use of the
votes-only Beatpath Criterion (BC) for that purpose, to test compliance with
the four majority defensive strategy criteria.
