I would not say it meant nothing. It means that you prefer one
candidate, but say nothing about how the other choices stand in
respect to each other. It also means that is your candidate does not
win you have no preferences.

Umm, this is slightly different, in that you assign a value to
candidate you vote 3 above the candidate voted 4; also, you indicate
that you would rather see further discussion than seeing other people
win, this is a stronger anti-everyone-but-my-candidate stance than
the one above.
You get to decide how stronlgy you feel pro you guy and anti
everyone else ;-).
