    I checked the COC and the extended policies Doc, doesn't define it.

    Of course it doesn't. It's up to the mods to let votes that suit their agenda let slip while ones that piss them off and upset enough people to be removed.

    Judging by the name it's probably a vote that can be counted as a vote but can also be removed. Don't quote me on this though.

    Maybe, that seems possible but IDK why they'd make a whole new category considering borderline votes are always deemed sufficient  according to the extended policies Doc.

    A vote is borderline when it is deeply unclear as to whether it meets the standards. These are votes in the liminal space between clearly permissible and clearly impermissible.
