Congratulations, Andrew!
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
Actually, Peg, yes. Calling someone a liar when, in fact, the OP simply didn't understand the policy (which, I concede, is possible, based on the phrasing), is obnoxious. Further, the OP then posted the response from Club and Member Services explaining that he's *still* eligible to get his ...

NABC Bulletins, Do They Need to Be as They Are?
So it was exactly a decade ago. Thanks for pointing out that "more than" was an overbid. But you make my point about the OP: He doesn't know who writes for the DB, and if he's citing writers from a decade ago, he has selective reading skills.

Who is "Mike Horton"? And if you mean Mark Horton, he hasn't written anything for the DB in more than a decade. If you're going to complain, at least have your facts straight.
