	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 ;-).

	That is indeed how the scripts work.
