Sure, he can vote any way he wants, but stating your intent to vote
opposite to someone simply out of spite sure doesn't impress me as a
And mind you, we're not just talking about an individual voter, we're
talking about someone _who is going to be doing the votetaking_ (at
least that seems to be what the community has gravitated towards,
although there's not been much discussion about it). If he's _that_
tilted against the issue, maybe he shouldn't be the votetaker.
Furthermore, there's a simpler issue here: I would hope that an
votetaker would abstain (or at least offer to) from any vote he/she was
counting, simply out of basic ethics.
