Since its a club thing, I suspect most of us don't really care – but it would seem best to have a posted or website policy, which many, in my considerable club experience, don't seem to have.

“We have BW.”
For better or worse :)

I recall READING Michael's view and suggestions many years ago.

I believe from The Bridge World (possibly from an Interview piece).

David, we don't know (and perhaps never will) the thinking and the decisions behind the withdrawal.

Declarer's instant call of “play” as soon as dummy hits is often regarded as “good bridge” in many circles, both yesteryear and today.

I would hope that it could someday be stamped out.

Not so common, I don't think.

(Splinters – 13-15, normal, mini are a fascinating subject)

Al Roth advocated pure splinters – (1st or 2nd round control in side suits) – simulations have shown that “normal” splinters divide rather evenly between “pure” and “unpure.”
Distinguishing between the two is another bidding option.

I believe Kevin's father has long been an advocate of a mandatory pause at trick one (maybe a simple 20-second sand timer).

Well, there could be extenuating circumstances. Like – some members of the squad wanted to rest up for the BIG SHOW (Spingold). If so, can you blame them? Most of us follow the money :)

Chris, with respect, I question your comment.
I think the poster (DC) made it clear he wasn't questioning the decision and offered a mathematical analysis.
I should also add that I like Steve's comment below; I would be happy to withdraw (and have) when teammates concur.

Don't know, but I would think that Don's number are about right;

The old 10-1 ratio for all things Canadian and U.S. seems to be in line.

Go Fred Pollack – and Peter Weichsel, whom I've been a long-time kibitzer of who doesn't even know my name.

Go Fred Pollack - he's the only person in the top 50 I've had the pleasure of partnering!

(Yeah, we once won a club match point game together in Cincy.)

The ACBL Encyclo of Bridge (2011, Manley) provides much substance in the discussion of Jounalist and Rusinow leads (pgs 436 and 438). Presumably, these are patterned after those of the six previous editions, titled The Official Encyclopedia of Bridge (not not under ACBL auspices).

Randy, indeed - but if your usual method is “systems on” then you need to agree/not agree in this instance – similar to the question is Leb on in auctions after a 1NT overcall.
