Playing 2NT as Spiral, what does a direct 3NT mean?
Maybe you need more explicit meta-agreements than I do. What about: 3NT is a suggestion as a final resting place in any bidding sequence, where one has not agreed beforehand to a different meaning?
Uncomfortable Satisfaction
I am not a lawyer and English is not my mother tongue. But it amazes me that "comfortable satisfaction" is a suitable level of evidence in any modern jurisdiction.

Cheating on BBO
BBO can not effectively ban anyone. For this you would need real identities. What is difficult in registering again with a different udserid, different email address and a different IP adress?
Cheating on BBO
"The event effectively ended when, in the first final session, an unknown pair from a European country that has since won several world titles, posted a 76% game. " What does this prove? Nothing in my opinion. When will cheating allegation typically occur: When a pair is unknown of course and ...
