[Paul Lamford]

Admirable sentiments, and bridge clubs will generally be better places 
for it. The first three categories of "offender" are well covered, but the 
Secretary Bird, almost by definition, conducts himself exactly in 
accordance with the Laws. The method of dealing with him is, as someone 
suggested, ostracism. As wikipedia says:
"Crucially, 'ostracized' had no relation to the processes of justice. 
There was no charge or defense, and the exile was not in fact a 
penalty". 

[Nigel]
Clubs could punish Secretary Birds by ostrichising them?
