Gratuitous Question!!!
Kit seems to be suggesting that the question asker should be penalised if they had some values. The flaw in this is that a nefarious pair looking to abuse the rules could invert the meaning of asking this question and get away with it unchallenged forever. i.e. They could ...

Value of Support Doubles?
The main issue with support doubles is defining continuations and exceptions. They are very fertile ground for misunderstandings.
how many spades?
Are you planning to defend 6?
What does this 3!D bid mean?
I appear to have 8 tricks if 1 becomes the final contract, that a reasonable amount of defense. If it doesn't I will be able to act later.
