A lot of people seem to be voting conscience in the arbcom election.
Some very well known people have gotten a lot of negative votes,
including from people who I percieve as their friends in the admin and
senior editor community.

If you truly believe that your vote needs to be not attrbuted, then
it's perfectly fair play to create a second account and not vote from
your known account.  As long as you don't double-vote, it's perfectly
"legal" and completely functional at disguising you.
