This question is prompted by: Add a way for moderators to cast a normal, non binding close/open vote and Do moderators not have a way to just push a post into the close queue?. Basically, some diamond moderators don't always want to diamond-hammer close questions.
A workaround is to create a new account, earn 3000 rep, then cast regular close votes from that account.
Question: May a diamond moderator utilize a second, non-diamond account e.g. to cast regular close votes?
It is not a problem to have multiple accounts, as long as they aren't voting for each other and doing other sockpuppet-y things.
I worry this might be considered "sockpuppet-y".
