Which honour will you splinter with?
Opposite 1NT you should want to show all your singletons I reckon. I liked all Alexander’s reasons plus here’s one of my own: to help identify strain. My partner and I show shortage as responders rebid after a transfer (no jump required). If opener gives preference to NT ...

I certainly can’t post a 3rd thread on this topic. Was thinking about work arounds to this known flaw, but better to cut to the chase. Thanks to all the comments pointing in this direction and the auction suggestions.
