I believe that ethics must be tied to motive or they aren't ethics. (If your behavior accidently does a good thing, that isn't because you're ethical.) So to me, this has to be a discussion of motives.As I said on another thread on the subject, the goal has unfortunately become the gold medal, rather than the proof of skill that the gold medal is intended to honor. If the goal is to earn that medal by defeating everyone else this year, it is unethical to do so by gaming the system in such a way as to avoid playing against stronger competitors. Every competitor knows that the intent of the structure is. But these competitors wanted to win without doing so. So yes, what they did was unethical.Frydaze1
