Interesting. Understood that there are no legal implications.
Have no experience whatsoever of this but enormous experience on eBay.
Seems like you may think one 'side' has a reserve of votes and the other 'side' a lower reserve of votes. On eBay a raise by one 'side' automatically triggers a pre-programmed response by the other. Not sure how this could work. On eBay there are two people with GBPs to manipulate. How can one manipulate votes?
Still, an interesting question.
