USBF Invitational 1: My adventures on BBO part 2
Maybe not a great double, but they also saw how the match was going at the time, so perhaps it seemed like it was necessary. It's true that the likely trick given up by the double means you need to really have thought you had chances of setting it ...

Technically, timeo (I fear) is the verb. Danaos is the Greeks. Fermented is a present active participle and is an adverb. “I fear the Greeks, even bearing gifts.”
Non Timeo Danaos et Dona Ferentes Compulsus
I didn't take a ton of Latin, but... Doesn't "ferentes" meaning "carrying" in this case "bearing"? In that case, I would have thought you meant to write "donum compulsum," an "obligatory gift" in the body of the article. Also, then the title of the article would read Non ...
