The article erroneously claims compliance with Minimal Defense requires voting methods to permit voters to truncate their rankings. There is an alternative: permit voters to express indifference (at least at the bottom of their ranking). In other words, a voter may rank multiple candidates as equal to each other. For example, B > A=C. (Note: I'm not advocating that indifference be permitted ONLY at the bottom. I don't yet have an opinion either way.) SEppley 15:48, 22 November 2012 (PST)
