If you are bent on combining rounds, yes, it is the best way to do it.

But what is done is "These rounds could have been played in the same conditions - so they must have been". That catches some...

Which brings us back to the anecdotal. And my experience differs. People do not want to get the same rating for the same score, when they can see that score being better in one round than the other....

Could it not be argued that "we don't know" would be the reason for not combining them?
Is it not one the core ideas in the ratings system that you do not make such judgements?

Those two results...

Could not disagree more. Yes, the rating is a big thing about the membership. But that is due to it being official. Not because it is something that is concocted semi-secretly. Non-members can still...

The letter of the rule is that you have 30 seconds after "the playing area is clear and free of distractions."

That clearly resets the 30 seconds if a distraction occurs.

Remember: It also covers not showing up for a second round, without notifying the TD. So it is not necessarily deliberate manipulation.
