If they find it too hard to find the right rating between -99 and +99, then they'll consider the method bad however you put it. Again, RBJ has voiced the same point here on the list: "Range asks for too much, Approval asks for too little".

	¡That is so last week!  I wish to find a way to merge Score-Voting and Majority-Judgement into something even better.

So I don't think the grade inputs should be given with + and -, because the method appends a + and - to the result as part of the tiebreak process.

	I attempt to find a workaround, but for the time being, A through F without + and - is fine.
