Try changing it to "is what Connor did unethical" and see what happens.
Approval is a different subject.
Then the answer would definitely be more No than Yes. It was just merely peeping and people may not have much problem with it. It's not like erm, maybe Mark and Michael sabotaging the tools in Phuket, you know.. which is clearly wrong? If I wanted to know that, and I probably don't have to since they would have been penalized already.
Since that's not what I want to know, I'm more interested to find out if people agree more to his actions or even in fact, would do it on the race or not. That's so much more worthy than discussion rather than on just a simple topic on ethics. Ethics has so much more to that, it is affected by circumstance, people, scenario etc. I'm pretty sure if it's done by Max and Katie, people will probably not be as angry as Dave and Connor doing it since Max and Katie were never portrayed as the nice team.
Which makes this the best statement I've seen in this thread till now:
I just say: if dave and Connor are up to these things to get in first, do not sell me the image of an ill team, the cancer story or the broken achilles.
