Non-campaigning campaigning

Given stories like the one below, it may be understandable why Dartmouth College does not want its Alumni election to evolve into a hard-fought, bloody campaign. But, is underhanded campaiging more desirable? As of yet, no one seems to know what "campaigning" really means.

As Hugh Hewitt implicitly asks in this post, is "non-campaigning" even possible in the new internet age? Who can stop the spread of ideas?
