No, I didn't. I said "inferior alternatives". Implicitly, that means "...
for this particular use case" (phrasing which I've now added
And yes, I do believe that MJ is best for the particular use case I was
talking about there.

In fact, earlier in the piece, I explained that: "Please note that this is
not a one-size-fits-all solution. While Majority Judgment is a good system
overall, there are situations where I'd recommend others even more highly.
For US president, I'd recommend Approval; for US Senate, SODA Voting; for
most congressional and parliamentary systems, a biproportional system such
as PAL voting; in Robert's Rules situations, approval with runoffs; and in
loose internet voting, Score Voting. Such flexibility is the spirit of the
Declaration of Election Method Reform Advocates, of which I am a signator."
