Avoiding lightner/penalty double hitch vs slams. "Lightner pass"
"I may be showing my age, but I've asked for reviews with explanations since long before bidding boxes and no one has ever questioned what I was asking for or even hesitated for a moment." And no one will, because like you they've been doing it that way ...
