	Umm, consider a ballot: 1432. It may mean mean I like option
 A, and though I may not like further discussion, I like the other

	Ranking options below furter discussion does not mean I like
 further discussion. It means I like the rest _less_.

It is wise to keep in mind that neither success nor failure is ever
