Of course it isn't.  Nobody has suggested any such thing.  Good grief!

A leap to slam with no visible prospects of making nor a worthwhile
sacrifice is another matter.  "Got UI" is one possible explanation, but
there may be others.  The Director has to judge on a case-by-case basis.

If the Director is convinced of "blatant cheating," the proper action is 
to disqualify the offender (L91) and refer the matter to the appropriate 
disciplinary body.

An illegal action taken in ignorance is hardly "blatant cheating."  If a 
player receives UI from some source other than partner and doesn't 
notify the Director, that's a violation of L16C.  There's no prescribed 
rectification, so L12A1 applies.  Such judgments are made on "balance of 
probabilities," per L85A1, if the facts are unclear.
