IMHO, that is exactly what it is an example of

Simple reasoning: "ranking all the options the same" has the same effect as 
"not voting at all" WRT the outcome of the vote. Absent reasons to the 
contrary, it therefore should also be considered equivalent WRT the 
Monotonicity Criterion, or violation thereof, or lack thereof.
