Apportion the responsibility,
The actual question was who is responsible for the result?, not just for missing the game.
Apportion the responsibility,
West gets the majority of the blame because 2H was terrible. Double is automatic. However, East should not be held blameless since his initial pass was questionable and 2NT was awful.
An Unsigned Letter to the ACBL
Making their grievances known to the public may be the only way to get anything done. It may also be the last resort after trying to affect change within the system. It is quite possible that they are doing the members of the ACBL a big favor.

You Be the Judge
My point was simply that some do play that as a reverse and that we don't know if east misbid or not. If 2 of a major doesn't show any extra values, then 2NT is an error. If it does, then 2NT is right. Therefore we don't ...
What is suggested by the BIT?
It is unlikely that partner was thinking about doubling with a trump stack, so whether he was contemplating bidding or doubling, there is a suggestion that bidding on will be successful Pass is always logical in this auction, so bidding on should not be allowed.
You Be the Judge
If 2 or 2 are treated as a reverse, then 2NT is right. I don't treat the bids that way, so I would have bid 2 instead of 2NT. However, 5 is absurd.
