That's a non-sensical claim. The current system is exactly equivalent to having a ballot that consists of any proposal anyone makes ever, eg: ,--------- Do you second? Y/N | ,---- Ranking | | V V [ ] [ ] Option A [ ] [ ] Option B [ ] [ ] Option C [ ] [ ] Option D . . . --- [ ] Further Discussion and adding the rule that if less than 5 people mark a "Y" for each option in the first column, it's removed from consideration. The difference is in the annoyance when managing the vote, not in the final outcome; which is to say that whether seconding is a detail of the tallying mechanism is purely an implementation detail.
