i do too, Jameson. Score is bad (how do you score your second choice?)
but Borda is worser because of the restriction. the difference in
preference between #1 and #2 might be far less than that between #2 and
#3 and Borda does not know nor care about it. if i hate #2, Borda
scores him/her too highly, and if i like #2 (just not as much as #1),
Borda handles that just as poorly.
there's nothing good about Borda.
