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.
