To state that blaming responder is nonsense is, in and of itself, nonsensical.
Who to blame on this bad final contract?
I would consider it forcing to at least 3 once there has been a suit agreement. It wouldn't occur to me that 2 could be passed. Just because the hand is limited in terms of HCP's doesn't mean that game or slam isn't still ...
