Does the “no alerts above 4NT” not prevail re e.g. lightner's in EBU?

I take it you realise that was “ironic”?

I have to admit I often have trouble following these universally admired posts, but here I feel I must brave the opprobium of the huge majority of fans here in… disagreeing… and suggesting that the best people to judge these irregularities MAY not happen to be bridge players at least borderline world class.
The best players are not always the best referees.
But then, a tumschie like me would say that.

TBH… I think your second paragraph does not describe any reprehensible thinking/action on the part of the OP pair.

Man bumps into you oddly and awkwardly in the street. You think he may have stolen your wallet. You start to chase after him. Then you think you feel wallet in pocket, so stop. Some time later you realise that it is an unfamiliar pack of cards in your pocket. Only THEN do you think that your pocket has been picked after all.
Well, that's just your tough luck. You deserve it for not realising immediately.

Pronunciation is different for the 4th declension plural.

I find it very bizarre that people are actually questioning the “innocent until proven guilty” stance, which is Inherent in pretty much everything that we do in our lives.

You can be “consistent” without doing that.
And if you try to be consistent whilst doing that, you will have to work very hard, and may find a number of surprising… inconsistencies. (Did someone mention Boye elsewhere?)

Was there two weeks ago. Lots of renovation work being done then, even in the main Cathedral, with hoardings and limited movement inside.
A dangerous time.

ML: you seem to be referring to Latin grammar yourself (if indirectly) in writing ignorami in the first place. Which is about as relevant here as is the exact reason why you wrote it in the first place. When trying to work out why you wrote it in the first place.

ML: it must be entertaing to defend your position. I am sure you used ignorami deliberately so you could do so, while realising that the use of ignorami makes no sense at all.
Particularly since you no doubt realise that the verb “ignoramus” is, of course, a fourth declension noun, and the plural is thus ignoramus with that funny line over the“u”.
