Err, ...

i thought the voting system would rank the 'default' option as lower
than all the expressed votes and higher than all the non-expressed
votes. I even asked about this, and was told that it was so on this
list, if i remember well.

So a vote with only one option (one candidate) should be a vote where
this candidate rate higher than (defeats) all other candidates. How can
that be similar to abstention ? 

So, from your response, i think that is not so, which feels strange as
the condorcet voting used here is different from the condorcet voting
used for debian leader election for example.

I personnally did rank all 8 candidates though.
