Meaning of pass after (1M)-dbl-(redbl)
I think most of the "other" votes agree on what it means, just that the original poster didn't list it as an option.
Unauthorized Information
My experience in UI cases is that being forced to continue an auction with the worse bid is most of the difference in score. So they are already getting the worst of it. I do agree that they don't get the worst of it if there are complications further ...
