I wonder if it is possible for a CL to win three slot MMPO when the number of ballots on which X appears
in the bottom slot is counted as an oppsitions to X.
In other words, I wonder if the CL disqualification is redudant in that context.
Also, how does the CLD rule affect the FBC in general?
I too have been concerned that FBC compliance could be affected by CLD, or the other
disqualification and completion proposals that I've speculatively suggested.
I suggest that when one method is completed by another, or when there are
disqualifications, the "," relation should be used instead of the "//" relation.
So, when applying the 2nd method--the completion method, or the method used after
the disqualifications--the entire initial set of candidates would be used in
calculating the scores for the completion or post-disqualification method, even
though that method is applied only to the post-disqualification candidates.
Doesn't that do a lot to protect FBC compliance.
I found that CLDMMPO wouldn't avoid Kevin's MMPO bad-example (I mentioned that in
my other post today). But, as Ted suggested, maybe 3-slot methods can avoid many
of the problems that can happen with unlimited-ranking methods. So that's another
thing to investigate. Might 3-slot MMPO be easier to protect from Kevin's
bad-example? Is there some easy way to achieve that?
