I've posted an incomplete answer to the question
Does a left basis imply a right basis, without AC?
which has a 50 point bounty that expires soon. My answer is basically an idea that I think (but I'm not sure) I can complete to an acceptable answer, but I'm pretty sure I'm not going to be able to do that before the bounty expires. My answer already has a few upvotes, and if I understand how bounties work, that means that I might automatically be awarded half the bounty when the grace period expires.
I'd feel a bit bad if that happened, especially if I subsequently realized that my idea didn't work.
Is there any way I can dodge the bounty? If I temporarily deleted my answer just before the grace period expired, would that work?
