As near as I can tell, most people are comfortable with "It was a bad bid, hence not an LA" or "I wouldn't consider that bid so it wasn't an LA." As argued above, those aren't right. The serious issue is if an AC member starts thinking that way.
IMO, if a poll was done and the results clear, that pretty much defines what is or is not an LA. One can challenge details of the poll, for example arguing that the wrong class of players was polled. But one cannot challenge the results of the poll.
I will go further. Given a poll with clear results, it is not even a judgment to then make conclusions about what is or is not an LA.
