FRIEDLAND Disqualified From Reynolds Spring KO
Many of those points are won at games that really don't allow any cheating of the normal type. You are playing with three robots and hands varying between tables. You are competing against one human at each other table. Theoretically, you can cheat in those events by using memory ...

That is the kind of thing that makes many of us very unhappy that BBO took the action of "archiving" so many hands without advance warning.
FRIEDLAND Disqualified From Reynolds Spring KO
Richard, Mr. Reynolds did NOT announce this publicly. Nor AFAIK did BBO share any information about the details of an investigation with Mr. Reynolds. To clarify, action was based on the effect of BBO's suspension (forfeiture), not what caused the suspension.

FWIW, few players have a record like Pavlicek, but the Barts also have a very distinguished record as National champions and a popular convention with their name on it.

You don't have to log in to another account. You can watch anonymously and kibitz your own table if you qualify as an "interesting table", which normally means players with "stars" on their name.
Alerting in USA?
On line, there shouldn't be a problem with alerting stuff that is not alertable since the partner of the alerter is unaware of it.
Should undo's be permitted in BBO tournaments?
Difficult to agree in advance every round of a speedball pairs game.
