Surely you're not tired of assigning blame yet?
In my opinion, no. As I stated above, I was just trying to liven things up a little. I would encourage you to change your abstention to a vote, then make a comment saying "The poll choice said but I disagree with the reasons given: here's what I think ...
Surely you're not tired of assigning blame yet?
Well, I was trying to be a bit less dry than just "100% N, 75% N, etc." I tried to be also sufficiently vague as not to impose actual opinions on anyone. Evidently I didn't succeed for everyone. I am curious to know what you would have voted if ...

Weak raise of Doubled Major Alertable?
I have in fact heard people claim that Precision 1M bids are alertable.
Fate has no mercy
I remember once I was in a competitive auction where we were bidding spades and they were bidding hearts. Partner bid 4NT RKC. I responded showing two key cards without the queen. [i]Ah, too bad,[/i] thought partner, [i]We're missing a key and the Q, so slam ...
Fate has no mercy
Law 45.4(b) says, in the latest version of the laws: [i]Declarer may correct an unintended designation of a card from dummy until he next plays a card from either his own hand or from dummy. A change of designation may be allowed after a slip of the ...
