What is considered Proper usage of a bounty?
I am interested in offering a bounty to user X as I am interested in seeing one of his ideas come to fruition. It is not a bounty for a specific answer as it is just a bounty to incentivize some hard work. Is this essential bribery considered against our rules? On a similar note could a user bribe people with reputation to do some work for them?
Also, is it considered against the rules for two people to cross offer bounties in an attempt to gain publicity (and rep) while not losing any rep on the bounty? I think this is abuse of the bounty feature, but do we have a specific rule against it? Should we? (I'm keeping this part of the question here for reference) here is the answer on mother meta
