First, apologies if this "answer" (more of a long comment) appears to be a duplicate of the exact problem you are referring to :-)
There are other questions here where the accepted answer is significantly outvoted by a different answer -- there is even a badge for that: Populist.
I do not think there is anything wrong with there being a high number of votes on what is considered a "non-answer" by the OP. Until the answer is accepted people here know that that did not answer your question (The one exception being the users with a rep indicating that they are new to the site, or just came to get one answer, and went away.)
If that answer is getting a lot of up votes that just means that many people agree that you should not do that. While this may not be of immediate help to you, it may be very useful to someone in the future who is considering doing something and come across your question. When they see the high number of votes on that, they may reconsider.
There are quite a few people on here that have a lot of relevant experience so their advice should not be discarded. That begin said, to every rule there is an exception (and probably to this rule as well :-), so since you still feel that you want to do what you asked, doing as Jake suggested is the way to go. And posting a bounty will help to get that question noticed.
