Over 3 only 4 (and of course 4) would have been forcing.

What was the ‘plus’? 4 seems a simple preference to me.

I'm with Larry in that commentating is much more difficult than playing. Very much more.

Something is wrong with the system if South has to bid 3NT just to deny 3 (2?) hearts.

Partner may have passed 2-X because he had the intention of bidding further. I don't know what hand he might have but over the X 2 is certainly his weakest action and he did not choose that.
Therefore, in my view, we are in a forcing situation over 4, which means my double is penalty.

“it's a good idea that commentators always adhere to the points the document contains. If they don't, there is a risk that they won't be invited back”

Only, there is no inviting as things stand currently. If I want to commentate I only need to sign in and select the broadcast.

2NT but I admire those able to bring themselves to pass.

88-12 is an overwhelming result in favour of those who like to be informed about the other table.
Of course the 88 % could just as well watch the two tables simultaneously or switch between them at any time. Maybe they are not aware of that possibility.
A pity that the 12 % have no choice but obey.

Which is what you get when kibitzing at the table…

I would not like to be warned that the actual board is going to create a swing.

There are commentators at the other table too. Let them do their job.

The most I would do is to remark that the opening lead could make a huge impact if the other table were in slam. Then everyone could switch if interested.
But of course they themselves can see it is a borderline slam and can switch without being encouraged.

A commentator can't be my enemy.

Not sure what you're driving at, Gene.
You say ‘anyone can hit “Other Table”, and be transported’. That's exactly what I say. But if I am being told what is happening at the other table I am deprived of a free choice.

Roland, I really have difficulties understanding spoken English.

I never listen to voice commentary (because of language limitations) but that does not help: commentators-in-writing do the same.

It's hard to draw the line as there are many influencing factors. I'd say you should contribute at least one cover card/trick.
