Bridge post-mortems at the table
I once read somewhere that when the opponents are having an argument at the table, you should agree with the one who is wrong. Entertaining concept but probably not in line with zero tolerance so I have never personally attempted to try this. ;-)
1Nt---(2M)---X as penalties
Abstein. My preference is to use X as penalty but only if we play Rubensohl (which in my opinion is the best convention to use over a natural overcall after we open 1NT).

Would you call the Director?
You either have an agreement that the 2S bid show a specific number of hearts or you have not discussed this in which case you don't have any such agreement. In this case it seems like there is no agreement so the proper explanation is that the bid shows ...
