	I see. If I consider A to be unacceptable, what is the propoer
 way of handling this?

	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.
