Hm, I might be wrong about this, and votes for one candidate might be
possible to interpret like that. I'm really not sure; Condorcet is
complicated in its excellence. But in any case, the instructions are
quite clearly stated on the voting page, and in my first reply to Ian I
list a large number of reasons why an action on the part of the board to
restart the election under different rules would be a huge mistake. I
stand by those comments.
