Non Timeo Danaos et Dona Ferentes Compulsus
Ok! I've known that expression forever and always thought "dona" was the verb, "give," since it sounds like "donate," but I should have looked it up, as you say dona is the noun "gifts" and "ferentes" the verb. So the title and later phrase are messed up. I guess ...
Non Timeo Danaos et Dona Ferentes Compulsus
Yes, thank you; fixed.
Frivolous Appeal Penalty VOTE
I would approve the sentence with the addition of a cap to the penalty at something reasonable. Not that I expect commitees to go crazy, but some parameters should be codified.
Jonathan Weinstein's bidding problem: AJT5 73 Q JT8652
I love that I thought I was through making decisions on this hand after bidding 2NT, and here I can see five reasonable calls at the next turn.

There is a decent chance that you'll be happier in 3 or 4, or even 4, than 3NT.

Ban Collusive Cheaters For Life
Chris, Thanks for laying this out so clearly, especially the false analogy to criminal justice, and bridge as a privilege rather than a right. I agree completely about this. If I remember right, you pointed out a few years ago that the analogy is poor when it comes to burden ...
Missing Aces and Micro-Moysians
That was assuming hearts 8-1. I would also worry about hearts being 7-2. Then you would need East to have spade KQ and read the position.
Missing Aces and Micro-Moysians
On the first hand, I don’t think you need East to have KQ of spades. Run all the trumps keeping 1 spade and 3 clubs in dummy. If he keeps 3 clubs, cash A and duck a club. Otherwise duck a club. The J is a red herring.
Road to the GNT Final Four, R8 Q4
The club combination on the second board is pretty cool… I don’t have time to write it up today but maybe someone will.
