"the reflexively anti-ACBL barking seals"
As well as yours proving the ACBL critics right...
"the reflexively anti-ACBL barking seals"
I don't. It's the typical whine of somebody who doesn't want to hear criticism. There are certainly vocal critics here, but generally the ACBL gets skewered here when they have it coming. They had it coming in this case. Asking members to buy one particular membership type ...
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high

If partner is known to be aggressive, and didn't find an opening with his probable 10HCP, then I'd doubt he's the one with extra spade length, giving it to the opponents. It is a position, but I'd pass too.
good ruling?
By barred, did you mean, you were so fed up with the game you walked across the street to have a beer? Because that seems about right here.
