What if this is the general consensus among the league members that this is how the game is played? More power to them. That's how some leagues like to get down, and far be it from me to harp on them.
That said, I simply wouldn't play in a league where steps haven't been taken to make 'strategies' like these null and void. It wouldn't be a question of ethics, rather simply playing in a league that requires a different set of skills (in my opinion, more advanced ones; I think a monkey could stream and churn their way to a strong finish if league settings allowed it) to be successful. Things like GP limits, IP limits, and Add/Drop limits are designed to allow the cream to rise to the top, as opposed to the most active manager. In fact, any constraint or modification made for a league should be implemented with that thought in mind.
On a somewhat related note, y'all are getting way too hyped about all of this.
my favorite bit of the whole thread.. right here

On a somewhat related note, y'all are getting way too hyped about all of this - completely guilty as charged. I got too worked up about this. I just started thinking about if this crap was going on in my league and how pissed I would be. In the end you can play your way and I'll play mine and we'll all be happy in our own way. I don't envision JCook3127, Kaiser and LastingsGriller participating in a league together, but thats ok. We have fun in our own leagues.
