NABC+ Appeal Csae 2
your double meant: "looking at my club singleton pard I know you have a few clubs, if they are strong please pass, if they are weak please bid 3 diamonds" - great agreement if you have one, and you can prove you do, which unfortunately you cant
What does 3!S mean?
HHx, 5hearts, Qx, HHx or something similar. Too optimistic to expect pard to have both good clubs and robust diamond stoppers, so we should promise some help on both accounts

I you pass pards forcing bid when par result is heavily on opponents side you waive your rights to a good score. Fielding pards bluff is bad idea, and should be discouraged even if "honest"

I feel your pain, but if you make a double thats looks very much like penalty, just saying its not will not cut it, you heave to present either documentation or some previous board that would confirm that. I have been in your shoes and had hard time accepting it ...
Is this X takeout or penalty?
its much more profitable to play it as T/O. If you are doubling with diamond stack you risk them wiggling out in either 5-3 spade fit or even club fit (N can easily have 5 clubs and weak hand which he can not show cheaply without your help). However ...
How Hard Will You Strain to Raise
all four are pretty obvious raises, you should redo the pool, and use the first hand as the heaviest option and go all way down to xxx,xx,xxxx,xxxx.
Why am I not that crazy about Bridge anymore these days?
you missed an obvious reason - the stature of the game is compromised by recent scandals
Assistance Via Simulation Please
for 2. are 22, 23, and 24 HCP hands equally weighted? They should not be, for approx every four times you have 22 count, you will have 23 count twice and 24 count once.
Rare High-Level Decision
Neither. W is showing that he wants Diamond lead if they save over 6 spades. E is not banned from looking for 7 if he really likes 6D, but its not grand slam inviting.
Looking for consensus
The question is is not set up properly, whats the scoring, vulnerability, did pard open 1st or 2nd seat, etc. Luckily the hand in question is very clear non-4 spades bid no matter what. Still, 4 spade bid here still have a range of wrongness, from if pard opened 1st ...
