What is the best Olympic weighted medal ranking system?

There are several ranking systems to create medal tables for countries at the Olympics Games. See a discussion about the different ranking systems, and vote for your preferred medal ranking method. One ranking system method is to use a weighted point system, where points are given for each of the medals. A few of variations are listed on this site, this poll is asking which of these you think is the best to use.

The Weighted Ranking Systems

• Fibonacci weighted point system (3:2:1) — gold 3 pts, silver 2 pts, and bronze 1 pt.
• Exponential weighted point system (4:2:1) — gold 4 pts, silver 2 pts, and bronze 1 pt.
• London 1908 weighted point system (5:3:1) — gold 5 pts, silver 3 pts, and bronze 1 pt.
• LOF weighted point system (5:3:2) — gold 5 pts, silver 3 pts, and bronze 2 pt.

• The Fibonacci system definitely makes the most sense. I think it should be used as the official method to rank people with - the official system used now (One gold can beat 50 silvers; which doesn't make sense) and the one used by America (all medals are NOT equal) simply don't work.

• why u.s. is using the total medals to count which country is the best? while other countries is using the fibonacci system. (from jim, Aug 2012)
