Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
How would you have acted?
Yep. Apologies. A couple of the subthreads included non-screen comparisons. Being a never-screen-user, my thoughts drifted.

Interesting Ruling Situation
AK: Your evidence quite clearly points to the TD not treating this as a mechanical error. But it remains a possibility. Perhaps the flummoxed opp didn't get that across, or the TD wished to "punish" them for a failed alert followed by an irregularity both of their own doing ...
