What rule does it break, and why I am not blocked from doing it?
In Yahoo under fair play and sportsmanship:
No owner will make any roster moves (including waiver claims, trade proposals, etc.) whose sole purpose is to hamper the play of other owners
As to why you're not stopped from doing it, I'm not sure how easy it would be to program against it. IMO the rule is clear, though I doubt many take the time to read them, what with all those words and stuff.
Some people are "do what it takes to win" people (me), and other people aren't (wussies).
And some people (me) are "win without having to go outside the rules" people.
