If the opponents have an agreement to to jump-shift on a singleton under some circumstances, then they should be alerting because you "are entitled" to know, rather than because you "would appreciate" knowing. They should be alerting because the regulations require an alert, not out of courtesy (which is what ...
Accusation of Plagiarism against Mark Horton
It is easy to follow the principle "never complain, never explain" when you are deceased.
