Ah, so now it is a matter of determining intent. So, short of
providing code for telepathically determining the voters intent, how
can one cater to people who really find A unacceptable, and are
voting honestly, from people who would consider A acceptable, but are
lying to give B an edge?
You have taken yourself too seriously.
