You are well behind the baseline, and, for some odd reason, you just stop the ball (because both YOU AND I know it's out.) How would you feel if your opponent, me, claims that point? I agree with your other post, that if it's a close call, the you should let it land first. But if the ball is clearly sailing...

Also, did you read post 18? Maybe that will help paint a better picture of why I feel this way.
i'd be mad at myself for breaking the rule, not you for enforcing it
