My impression is that they will systematically discipline both rank and file members and elite members if accused during a sanctioned online event, which is all I had to say here.
Yes FIGB have jurisdiction over D. or me in any event, but they are not obliged to undertake proceedings if the event is not under the WBF umbrella and no WBF recognised body is complaining. In this case as I understand they took a look at the allegations and rejected them, defending D. The popular verdict was far from unanimous even on BW. The legal verdict was against the accusers.

If they took a look at the allegations then there should be a report detailing their findings and why they arrived at that conclusion. That is a part of being open and transparent. Other NBOs do publish minutes from their ethics committees. Basically every time an Italian national player has had allegations made against them, the reaction of the FIGB has been to reject the charges without producing any sort of report. That is not "a clear and effective disciplinary process". As for "not obliged", if someone broke into your house/flat and stole everything you own and the police reaction was "We are not obliged to investigate. Good bye," would you think that was an acceptable response?

Are there many Bridge clubs where getting your face smashed in is a major risk?

I may have come close for telling a bridge bully to ***** off after a particularly nasty round. It's no wonder he's missing so many front teeth despite claiming to get along with everyone.

EDIT: BBO used one asterisk too many.

It's probably easier to cheat if you know what to do with the information.
