unethical? its illegal, in this situation the small blind must call the extra 80 chips to knock the player out or face a penalty. Soft play isn't ethics its rules. players should play 'hard' against all players and take the actions to eliminate people as the tournament progresses.
But its online, whatcha gonna do ;-)
besides, ive seen this backfire and the chip leader end up on the bubble after shorty gets a lucky walk then a double up or 2 and hes back in the game. chippy, who was king of the world 2 mins ago, is now short stacked and panicking thinking "why didn't i just call him he'd be out and i'd be in the money."
like you said, there is no reason to suspect collusion, it was probably just a missclick.
