I posted this by a suggestion after a discussion after the game. I'm starting to get a drift of an answer from the poll responses so far.

Once doesn't mean always. And I wouldn't be sweating the Binski level and contributing to non-unanimous polls and hoped for edification. In case finding out it's wrong here reinforces getting it right at the table.

I like that colorful graphic art from ranked answers polls.
From most iffy to less iffy.
Here's mine:

South's double of 4.
North's overall bidding.
North's 1st double.
North's 2nd double.
Somebody raised a question of West's 2 GF.
North bids 2 or 3.

I found some points that I didn't bid with last time.

I'm precipitously (that's my sweat) supporting with support.

I would feel better if East's double was more likely to be t/o of hearts and West has the long club suit.

Are we getting our tricks before they go away or do we need to make a killing lead. I looked up and didn't see any cows.

I play 1N as too descriptive and straight forward to call this hand too weak.

And now this hand looks like more defense than offense.

I think disappointment would more readily come from a 3 bid going poorly than a 2 bid.

3 actually amount to a qbid. And when 3N was passed, it was a qbid for a dia stopper. With a different/more natural dia holding, West might have bid 3N. Instead of looking for a dia fit. 3N by East could wrongside NT. As it turns out 3 by East as a qbid would have fit in.

Sacrificing my clubs to shorten my trumps looks like the opposite of what I want to do.

I'm passing while the heart worms are still in the can.

I don't think bidding 4 over partner's double of 4 is anything close to a violation of partnership confidence. But more like continuation of the context of the previous actions. Which are kind of off in a misrepresentation world.

I was afraid we might have to lose a club trick.
Some people thought partner had a dia stopper.
You must have too, to pass 3N.
It seems like bidding over 3N you might get to 6N.
There is probably some good auction. I don't know.

Passed hand jump = other mj.
4N = 2 places to play.
Bid clubs and hope to get to bid hearts.
12 to 13 cards in your suits start to emerge in the fog.

This is so awful.
How can I ever hope to have partner get that this is my passed hand?

Really.
If it's partner that has the goods, I want to defer to his entitlement and possibly better decision making. If it's the opps, I want to preempt. There are too many red cards outside of my hand. Opening 2 may be my only chance to make a bid that is closest to what I have now. Not later.

With 4 hcp, not 7 I'm less likely to be risking a viable 1N.
So now I risk going down more by bidding. Because crawling garbage Stayman doesn't come up enough. Risk trashing a board in case getting this right in the future is important.

If you had a little more hcp control than the 2 black kings, you wouldn't have to open 2, you could open 1. You may be outgunned in hcp by all 3 other players.

I think it's a mistype. It has you North doubling not partner.

I hope they just stumbled around and bid too much.
And if we have a dia trick, it's more likely to go away than a heart

And somehow your prophylactic pass divined a low % occurrence instead of the many more likely ones.
