If South had a 5th diamond this would be a good slam. Blame the system.

I can't see the gamble here, South was sure to play in a 8+ card fit.

Partner has KQJx (he would not have lead K from KQxx and he has 4 hearts judging from his 2).
Let him cash his hearts. We discard a discouraging and he will know to switch to the appropriate black suit.

We always regards the opening 1m as natural, even if it promises 0 cards in that suit. Maybe not optimal but easy.

I wonder what you would bid with a nondescript invitational hand.

Card showing without necessarily being balanced.

While I like that treatment, I am afraid of 3rd hand passing with anything he has and they go down 5 against our game contract.

You are not worried about partner bidding a 3-card minor suit. You're going to bid 2NT anyway.

So you have to gain at least 8 IMP's on this hand. That changes matters considerably.
If partner has a borderline game accept and they bid the game in the other room then they will have to be doubled and go down 2 for -300 while you score a small plus against 2. That is an unrealistic expectation.
To gain 8 IMP's you'll have to bid game and hope to make it while they go down in the other room.
In other words, this is no time for being cautious and 1NT was a big mistake.

I voted 2NT but I would have doubled over 1.

Isn't it against the rules to look at the opponents to assess them?

2 only shows a nice hand, not reversing values. I even think it is nonforcing.

Whenever I come across an article I find interesting I save it to my PC.

Being offended is the person's own decision. It is not obligatory or forced.

The first is TO of their major. The rest are penalty.

In my country this is almost standard (under the name “optional roman key-card”), only some play the first step as encouraging, others as discouraging. I belong in the latter group because that makes it possible to bail out in 4NT.

I can't imagine myself never raising hearts. I could have Kxx,x, Kxxxx, AQxx. Is not the actual hand at least 3 tricks better?

Which was correct, the 4 shown in the bidding or the 4 suggested by the text?
