[EM] [CES #8970] Score Voting and Approval Voting not practically substantially different from Plurality?

OK, I will totally eat this one if that's true, if there was no hostile
intent.  But it sincerely appears to me that there IS hostile intent, and
passive aggressiveness.  


*         Benn doesn't seem to be able to distinguish

*         People like Benn apparently still don't get it.

*         Benn also does not seem to recognize


If I am wrong, then I unreservedly apologize to all. But it's hard for me to
see this as utterly benign, as opposed to sneakily hostile.


Maybe I am totally off base here - maybe being impugned in the third person
in front of oneself is completely socially acceptable.


It just doesn't seem like a nice intent to me.

Benn, Warren did cross a line with you, and you were entirely justified in
calling him on it. But on a list like this, with half a dozen people
actively participating in each thread, it is really hard to decide whether
to address people in the second or third person. I understand that after the
incident with Warren you are naturally a little bit touchy, but I think that
Stephen was arguing in good faith, and you should try address his arguments'
logic and not their language.
