@D Burn: Sorry, but I think you need a new bit.
Michael Rosenberg on a Grand Slam
I disagree. Even setting aside the etymology, this is a perfectly acceptable and not especially unusual use of the word 'eulogy'.
What is 4!H?
I consider what Mikael describes to be standard not a special agreement. For me, with 1363 bid as in the OP, unless you can unequivocally set as trumps (in which case bid 4 over double). With a hand with a stop but too strong to bid 3NT ...
P/C or Pick
Imo 2D pick is the better agreement, 2H pick is the standard one.
Invitational or Forcing?
Imo standard is "almost forcing" but best agreement is as Kit has described.
Changing The Guard - attracting younger players
Good for you. I don't know how old you are but I suspect that your answer would not be typical of the average-aged player.
Changing The Guard - attracting younger players
I disagree - I think it's a huge factor. Would you really enjoy and regularly attend club nights if all the pairs in the room besides yours were teenagers? Of course I'm not disparaging teenagers, just remarking that people naturally enjoy spending time with those their own age.
Merijn Groenenboom's bidding problem: --- AKQT7 7432 QT86
Some of us play double as *takeout*
Assign the blame missed slam - 1
I think East could have QJ to 6 or 7 and out on the auction. So imo East should do more. EDIT: I also agree with comments saying that West should keycard. Changed my vote to both.

Honestly Kieran don't waste your breath. This is one of LH's favourite trolls. I've explained this to him before but he is not able to understand. I mean, it even says "small pips" in the OP. I have hidden his posts and suggest you do the same.
