^^^^This!

I think the interest in the rules is not so much to find fault with RDawg/Jake over even Cap'n Furious - but to try to see how the TransPac RA dealt with this situation vis-a-vis those rules. At least that's the angle I see.

In any case, the use of the AP in relation to the rule is not the real issue...it's the penalty for that use that's at question here. And the "Penalties" notice LetsGo posted above leaves a tremendous amount of squish on that issue. Assuming an automatic DSQ is errant I would say.
