Such calls appear as unique & in cases can be reasonably
interpreted as being bad by contest committees.
And reasonable contest committees will accept your asking
why it was considered a bad call. I once saw a former colleague
who moved to Manila in my UBN report & under the circumstances
it was changed to a unique. He got on for the first time & perhaps
last time for years to come to say hi & give me a Q - quite an
extreme but otherwise obvious unique that could have been bad.
