Stolen bids are silly

There is no convention worse than stolen bids after interference over 1N opening.

You lose  the penalty double (or negative double if using that method), so you are give free pass for anyone to overcall with impunity as you can't double for penalty.

Sure you get the transfer effect with stolen bids but this is overrated and can always use Transfer Lebensohl which allows a transfer on some hands.

Learn Lebensohl it's  not that hard and way better
