Better, maybe, but considerably better?

It should not matter where you are as far as what creates UI. The law is the same.

I know nothing about the case, but the US Secret Service is charged with, among other things, the protection of the President of the United States. Seems to me a more likely candidate for a US government agency as attempting the murder of an anarchist would be the Central Intelligence Agency.

Time zones are a pain. :-)

What everyone believes to be true may match what the rules say, or it may not. In the latter case, what everyone believes does not trump the rules.

'No agreement by definition includes “spades”'.

There are several ways to parse this sentence. Most of them make no sense. I suspect what you mean is ‘if the pair have no agreement as to the meaning of “double”, the doubler might have a spade suit". You may think that’s obvious, but it isn't.

Which makes me wonder if he was, erm, stretching the truth.

A club is, in fact, its own regulating authority, because the ACBL declines to get involved in anything clubs do. A club is, in law, not its own regulating authority, because the ACBL has not delegated or assigned its powers as a regulating authority to clubs. And that ignores the question whether the ACBL is a regulating authority at all any more. Technically, I don't think it is.

Also, regulations are not laws.

Yes, “but he decided to do something different”. I wonder why he made that decision.

Nobody is “forcing” anything. I wish people would quit making these silly assertions.

I don’t see where “he was cheating” is a fact.

There has to be some minimal set of rules, or society descends to chaos and barbarism. As for your second point, you didn’t, Alan did.

I am convinced by neither Bruce’s “almost demonstrable” nor Michael’s “any other call is ‘using’ UI”. In the first case, “almost” isn’t good enough, and in the second, the necessary condition “demonstrably suggested” has not been demonstrated.

The argument that some systems are banned because they are unfamiliar seems specious to me. It's more to the point to say they're unfamiliar because they're banned.

Perhaps all Georgians are color blind. :-)

It would appear that whatever algorithm is being used by whatever software is using it to correct my straight double quotes to curly ones doesn't understand the difference between opening quotes and closing quotes. :-(

“Without a CC there isn't any evidence at all.”

Is there not? Testimony is evidence. Therefore the director has to determine the facts (if he can) and make a judgement as to what the actual agreement, if any, was. While I don't expect it to turn out that North's explanation was in fact an accurate description of the agreement in this case, the director cannot dismiss the possibility out of hand.
