Is there any way to get absolutely incorrect explanations changed or are we stuck with continually guessing?

On a hand tonight the explanation was that the robot's raise of my suit showed at least two card support. Dummy came down with a void. In my suit. I don't know what the bid really meant, a correct explanation would have been helpful.

Sometimes the robot will deviate from the system based on simulations, just like players do in real life when they can't find a perfect systemic bid. And as in real life, the explanation is based on the agreement, not what the player actually holds.

Understanding GIB bidding - Robots cannot not count = 6 card suit ( can be anywhere from 4 to 6 cards)
Rebid of a suit = 5 card suit (2,3,4,5,10) robot can bid it 3 times
High Card Point count = singleton King = 5 pts; Ace, King, x, x = 7 pts.
same with Queen or Jack! (no sense of suit quality)
Notrump bid by person, shows at least 3 card support for all suits.
So when the bidding goes 1 club, pass, 1 spade, pass
do not bid 1nt with 12 to 17 points if you have a
singleton spade. Robot will go to 4 spades with a
poor suit if you bid a makeable 3nt.
Competitive bidding, do not take one more bid, if you do Robot will always
raise it one more level so that you go down more.
Always remember when playing Robot Tournaments that you are playing against 3 robots!

I think the Robot GIB system have some problem, for ex. 2D pass 3D then i bid 4D, my 4D mean double high suit, but robot bid 6N, why robot didn't bid 4H, or 4S, actully 4S, 4H all can make, but 6N down many! so I think should change robot bid style!
