	I am just curious.  This is just a thought-experiment.  I see nothing wrong with Score-Voting.  My biggest problem with Majority-Judgement is that it needs more testing.  This is what I advocate:

	0.	Remove the overvote rule, thus turning Plurality-Voting into Approval Voting.
	1.	Expand the range from 0 to 1 to from negative -99 to positive +99, thus turning Approval Voting into Score-Voting.

	While a tried to explain advanced voting to PegaSisters and Bronies, I had an interesting idea.  I am almost ready to submit my idea to the mailing list Electoral Methods.  I definitely do not advocate the adoption of a voting system I just pulled out of mine ass  ——  evidently, we just went from ponies to asses  ;-)  ——  last week.  The idea was combining the expressivity of Score-Voting with the resistance to tactical voting of Majority-Judgement.
