Reporting your team's renege
Note that "unless prohibited by the RA" has been removed in the 2017 revision to the Laws. As soon as all RAs adopt the new laws, it will be allowed everywhere.

"I want to know why West said it the way he did" -- because he doesn't know any better, or considers them to be essentially equivalent. My partner frequently says "I don't know" if he's not sure what my bid means.
