It would be helpful to cite the paper where Woodall defines the criterion. James Green-Armytage 21:32, 19 May 2005 (PDT)

It's from a draft version of a paper that hasn't been published. Do you think this makes a difference? Kevin Venzke 11:33, 20 May 2005 (PDT)

Done, although I'm not sure how useful it is. User:KVenzke

I have deleted the following sentence: "Whichever of these methods is paired with the CDTT, the combined method necessarily fails the Plurality criterion and Condorcet criterion." In my opinion, this sentence ("... necessarily fails ...") could be interpreted as if CDTT, plurality, and Condorcet were incompatible. However, the Schulze method satisfies the CDTT criterion, the Plurality criterion, and the Condorcet criterion. Markus Schulze 23 Jun 2005

However, the Schulze method is not one of "these methods." The article should say that when the CDTT is "paired" with a method that satisfies LNHarm, Plurality and Condorcet are failed. Kevin Venzke 07:47, 23 Jun 2005 (PDT)

By the way, I changed that line from Regardless of the method paired with the CDTT, it should be noted that the combined method necessarily fails the Plurality criterion and Condorcet criterion, because Chris Benham criticized that this statement is only true with LNHarm methods, and that one could conceivably use the CDTT for some other reason.

Later No Harm?

The article says methods that satisfy CDTT satisfy Later No Harm only when there are 3 (or fewer) candidates. MAM and Schulze's method give identical results when there are 3 or fewer candidates, and neither MAM nor Schulze's method satisfies Later No Harm when there are 4 or more candidates. So why is the article suggesting a connection between CDTT and "coming close to satisfying" Later No Harm? SEppley 12:41, 11 March 2010 (UTC)

Missing justification

Criteria need to be justified if they are to be taken seriously. What is the harm to society if society uses a voting method that does not satisfy CDTT? SEppley 12:41, 11 March 2010 (UTC)
