No, really, they don't.

The vote was using an unorthodox and flawed voting system that Joop decided by
fiat would be used.  He always does this, selecting the voting method that
gives him the most likelihood of getting his way.

This is just one of a series of decisions (and there have been a slew of them
recently) that Joop has decided by fiat.
