Ethics question, Part 2

Matchpoints, local club game.

 

Partner deals and opens 1D, you respond 1S, partner raises to 2. Lets say you have a hand that on which you would make a game try (or bid game if thats your style) about 50% of the time. Say something like 4 spades and 11 points. Or whatever is the equivalent in your system.

 

You know that if you huddle and pass, then LHO would be more reluctant to reopen with a DBL.

 

Is it ethical to pass quickly here, when you have something to think about, hoping that LHO will DBL and the opps will get into trouble?

 

If yes, how is this different from thinking for a long time with a worse hand, hoping LHO won't reopen with a DBL due to your think?
