It maybe lockdown or just me, but is booting getting crazier recently?

I arrive at a table where 7N had been bid in spite. The host booted me for a bad bid, then continued to hassle me.
Booted after 3 seconds or arriving at a table - no reason given. This happens often.
Open 2S in 4th seat with 12 count and 6 spades - boot
Open with a flat 11 count - boot before first card is played.
New table - waiting a long time for p to arrive. P arrives and host boots.

Seriously people, we need to start recording why people boot! Or at least let people report people who boot.
It seems crazy that people can boot with total impunity.

Discussed here many times, my long term suggestion is that host should have to supply a reason for booting.
Maybe admin could merge your post with other recent and similar threads.

So, more crazy boots this week.

Booted for leading the wrong card, when host and P was on lead!
Booted for opening 1D with 1444
Booted for opening 3C with a 6 card suit KQJxxx
Booted for opening 2C with <20 points, and still making 7N

To be fair, all these happen in the main shark tank. The clubs like Acol Club are pleasant places to play but it can take a time to find a p.

Reports to BBO seem to disappear into a black hole. I watched whilst one player booted many many people in a row so I suspect that BBO's boot tracking is not working.

This isn't the kind of behavior that gets someone kicked off of BBO. You need to make personal attacks, or racist/sexist comments, etc.
