While, I would never do this as I don't have any that i would trust to fold, I don't really think it's a big deal
First thing is if you are planning to do this, DON'T put on a message board you are planning to do this.
What part of "cheating" do you not understand? And it is cheating, period. End of story. The reason the site cares should be obvious, lol. And it is a big deal. You know why it's a big deal? Rules are rules. If you make exceptions it defeats the rule and renders it useless. Every malicious cheater could simply claim they were helping out a friend. How could you prove they are or are not cheating? You cannot. Thus, the rule; no chip dumping!
You know, at most live cash games you cannot give a player at the table chips from your stack? Away from the table you can, but not at the table. As this is a rule, you cannot make exceptions. Watch the movie Rounders
. That should make it crystal clear.
OP, realize if you and your friend do this, good intentions or not, you are cheating
and will become known cheaters. No way around it. Either do a player-to-player transfer or accept you are willing to cheat and accept the consequences once you do. If you get caught do not whine how unfair it is that all your money and the other guys got taken by the site.
Stealing a candy bar when you are starving does not change the fact
you are a thief. People can understand it, certainly, but it will not change that fact.
