So I'm new to the voting system and had a bit of a gaffe trying to zen after a bad comment found me on a bad day. Long story short, I down-voted good answers with the intent to undo the down-votes as a method of letting go of any ill feelings towards the user, only to find that votes got locked after a few minutes. Fortunately, the issue was resolved and the down-votes were undone, and (hopefully) there's no hard feelings.
But if they hadn't, what if I were to edit the answer with "MilesBedinger is an idiot and is undoing an unearned downvote", undo the downvote, and then delete my added sentence?
Is this possible, and more to the point, is it acceptable? Or is it just breaking one rule to fix another gaffe?
