In any case, if you are not willing to call the director it seems that it is a situation you are happy to accept. Perhaps I am missing something, but if this is true, why post?

I post because I am interested in cases of UI, (especially those at my table) and how these incidents should influence the choice of calls a player can make - if following the laws of the game. I said early in the thread that I thought it was blatant use of UI if playing standard, I wasn't sure when playing precision.
What responder did was suspicious to say the least and unfortunately, it is not uncommon. I wouldn't say it is deliberate every time, I think players don't realise that they can avoid giving UI and don't understand when they have received it. Calling the director makes me very unpopular very quickly and in a club game it's just not worth it. (sad to say)
Among other reasons for the post, IMO, is that Jilly and others get reinforcement that what they feel about situations at the table are sentiments other people also feel.
Being human, we don't call every opponent to task for every perceived indiscretion. (Those who insist that they do are not telling the truth.)
Discussion on these fora are helpful to us in determining whether the line we draw in the sand is close to the line drawn by others ---dependent upon the level of the game we are playing.
Threads which cover both the legal and the practical applications are interesting to me.
