I suppose this is as good a place as any to remind you of that the time is ticking down on your move :)

It would be amusing if our elections were zero sum: vote for someone, antivote for someone. Up with third parties!

Unfortunately, among weighted positional methods (x points to first place, y points to second, ...), only Plurality satisfies the Majority criterion. In other words, your vote-antivote system would some times elect a candidate even when a majority preferred another candidate.

So... Condorcet FTW! *chuckles*

Vote-antivote isn't meant to be fair, it's meant to be an interesting idea to sort of laugh at and to consider what it would do to a two-party system. The Republicans vote for Republicans and antivote for Democrats; the Democrats vote for Democrats and antivote for Republicans; in the meantime, the Libertarians win.

And chess move made, sorry for falling behind.

"Antiplurality" would be even more like this: you vote against a candidate. Whoever is least worst liked wins - which usually would mean that some party that nobody's heard of wins.

But I see your point :)

Logitech G11, G15 or G19...

... I have the G15 and never used them. XD; The macros are on the far left side of the keyboard, and the way the keyboard drawer is not wide enough, I can't access them easily.
