Zero tolerance at club games (club directors' comments are appreciated)
Having run across a similar auction a few months ago (though in my case the distribution was 2-4-4-3 and the auction started 1 - 2), I decided to ask the ACBL (through rulings@acbl.org). FWIW, the following is the response I received: Dear Amir, Thanks for writing to ...
Zero tolerance at club games (club directors' comments are appreciated)
While I have no doubt it started as an attempt to do so, it has now morphed into this toxic mess that people who have an axe to grind can use with impunity to try and intimidate their perceived persecutors, emphasis on perceived.
Zero tolerance at club games (club directors' comments are appreciated)
Everybody was over-reacting, this whole incident is as moronic as the policy which triggered it, which, in other words, passes for completely normal in ACBL land.
My Turn to Speak
What's an upsetting thought? That the ACBL approached this with the same thorough incompetence that they demonstrate with everything they ever touch?

Peg Kaplan's bidding problem: 963 K8762 Q7 J53
I guess it takes away the 4 and 4 q-bids, but I agree that it basically accomplishes nothing. Since you're certain that they're going to at least 4 , take that away from them and let them guess at the 5 or 6 level.

I would have bid 5 originally and let them guess. I abstained, but I guess if I'm forced to make a call, I would pass.

I missed the first poll, but 5 would be automatic for me.
Clarification regarding suggested defenses in ACBL events
Ed, the word was deliberately chosen :)
