Who should 'scape whipping?
It's the i-word. If you look at the page source, you'll find that the list of bad words is quite short, so for example you could have used "cretin", "imbecile", "simpleton", "fool", "twit" or one of many different words for human reproductive organs.
Who should 'scape whipping?
This deal generated three polls on BridgeWinners before it was even 24 hours old. Maybe it's difficult?
Forcing Pass
Another thing that may have happened at the other table is that the opponents faced the auction 1-4 and misguessed. What does an invitational hand with a shortage actually look like?
Surely you're not tired of assigning blame yet?
Richard, I said it "seems obvious to me". I didn't say I expected it to be obvious to you. And I used the word "trivial" in the context of a conversation that began: Brad: "As far as balancing 2♠ goes, I wonder what we'd be saying ..." Andy: "I ...

If you had offered a poll option that read simply "More South than North", I would have voted for that. I would also have voted for an option that read "More South than North. North's decision to leave in the double was unwise with such poor trump spots, but ...

Getting to 3 after balancing with 2 is trivial. Partner bids 2nt asking for my minor, and I bid 3.
Surely you're not tired of assigning blame yet?
Sorry,I thought it was obvious. I don't vote in polls where each poll option includes a verbal justification (or, more commonly, inanity), so that voting requires me to choose from a set of opinions none of which I wholly agree with. If the poll options had been simply ...
Surely you're not tired of assigning blame yet?
"As far as balancing 2 goes, I wonder what we'd be saying about that choice if the round kings were switched and North lacked the 9." I'd be saying "plus 110". Moving the kings around doesn't make 3 any less cold.
Surely you're not tired of assigning blame yet?
I didn't vote, because I never vote in polls of this type. That's not a complaint, but simply a statement of fact.
