Preferred Method (if Any) for Showing “Bust Hand” After Partner’s Strong 2!c Opening
Some decades ago a kibitzer quizzed Meckstroth about 2H super negative. the response was something like, 'That's the last thing opener needs to know'
To BBO: Please eliminate UI from insta-actions
GB> That's obnoxious. Let me make my bid and send it over when you see fit. More colorful language would be appropriate. So many times just any which response to a problem is made in the name of 'Look, I did something'. But was the right thing done? Yet ...

Thank you. Some decades ago I sought Stevenson's counsel about the particulars of a common ACOL sequence and apparently he was unwilling to clarify; from which I took an inference that ACOL has an amorphous nature.
Can cheating be stopped in online bridge?
DB> Changing the game to one in which there was no more misinformation might not be a bad idea, of course. I am thinking that the notion (for instance) open notes would be in the undesirable direction. Which begs the question, 'what are the particulars of such goal?' Fwiw, my ...

RF> I think that this may have been more of a problem in the USA where certain bids had too wide a range to be comfortable Not arguing but my vulgar understanding of the wide ranging bids in ACOL is seen as feature?
