Did they use a special term for this property?

We used to have an FBC page on Wikipedia, based on content from Russ' site I believe, but eventually this
was removed since the notability is unclear.

The big difference between ABucklin and MJ is that in the former, raising and lowering a candidate can alter
the stage at which other candidates attain majority.

It occurred to me that it could happen that if you change

This could probably move the win from B to C or E. But then you could just top-rank B to prevent it.
