well truthfully i left for 3 years in 2006 and came back about a year ago. in the past i used to look at the winners and not read the replies. like i said it just seemed that people were calling the split vote a lot, and this was a way to fix it.
I'm Canadian. but regardless of my country of origin, you're label of my behavior is kinda loaded. like, how can i even reply to it? In doing so, I perpetuate this now rightist and ignorant stigma you've attached. the very fact that i have an opinion seems to be your focus. sorry i guess i'll always have an opinion, and i think you shouldn't silence the debate with labels that attack the very motive in which i post. it's kind of ironic because you're not a yes man on this site. you often stir the pot or call people on bullshit, so why have your sights set on my behavior? i won't hit below the belt if you don't, there is no way out of what you said other than to see it's inherent flaws in dominance. basically regardless of how i reply, you can say "see".
given the context of this, it's interesting because first past the post is way more republican/conservative then preferential voting. global voting reform is actually a liberal movement. basically the reason in Canada is the fact that there is one conservative party and 2-3 left leaning parties. with preferential voting it eliminates the public tendency to vote for what has the best chance and in stead go for what they want, because the best chance will still get their vote before the conservative one. You're a smart enough guy to already know that, along with others on the site. so if i am rebelling, and acting political, it's more liberal minded. I guess preferential is way less considered in the US because with only two combatants you kind of technically already have it.
in 10 months if i remember, and i hope i do, i will bring it up again. and if people are game i'm more than willing to help out. i think it would make for a much more interesting awards season. i don't know, it's a soft side of me, but i really like how this site has the awards. it's geeky freaky or w/e, but it's fun.
