OK, here's a nice little debate topic that I don't think we've had or at least not in a while. Let's say there's a contest for limited dolls. Your friend wants one really really badly and can pay. You don't want or can't afford one yourself, but you agree to enter under your own name, on behalf of your friend, with the understanding that if you win, your friend will pay the price of the doll (no more; this isn't scalping or flipping) and will adopt it and love it as their own. 1. Is this right or wrong? Why? 2. Would it be wrong to do if the person was a stranger and/or was paying you to do it, but OK to do because it is a friend and you care about them? Does it matter how close the friend is (i.e. a family member or super close friend, rather than just somebody you know more distantly off a forum and are a little friendly with)? 3. Does the type of contest and the way it is run matter? For example, is it OK to do this in a lottery but not in an essay contest? 4. Does the contest being perceived as somehow vague or inherently unfair make a difference? For example, if lots of scalpers often win, does it make it more OK for you to try to get a doll on behalf of someone who really is going to love it and not just turn around and sell it? 5. Do you think this really cuts into the chances of people who just submit the one entry for themselves? Since we've now had this come up with a couple releases (Breakaway, Bermann) I thought it would be interesting to hear everyone's civil thoughts on here.
