Caller's Arguments:

UNDECIDABLE is definitely appropriate.  But IRRELEVANT may also be
appropriate, and this CFJ may or may not be on "the permissibility of an
action" (R2110).


Judge BobTHJ's Arguments:

True would certainly be a applicable judgment. R101 permits players to
take actions that are unregulated, and
(hereafter nkep) has never been regulated by the ruleset, nor is it
likely to be in the near future. Undetermined does not seem to be an
applicable judgment, as I doubt if any further information regarding
nkep would provide a clearer answer to this inquiry. Irrelevant seems
to be applicable. Weather nkep is permissible or not has no bearing on
Agora outside of this case. However, Undecidable seems to be the best
fit as nkep certainly is nonsensical. Therefore, I hereby judge


Appellant Zefram's Arguments:

BobTHJ has subsequently claimed, in the discussion forum, that
"nkep..." has a specific meaning as a type of action, albeit in a
non-global context such as a contract.  If such a local meaning were to be
relevant to CFJs then it would support a judgement of TRUE or FALSE for
CFJ 1799.  This has become an issue in CFJ 1805a, where it is suggested
that such a local meaning could support a ruling that CFJ 1799 was in
fact about an action.

I note that BobTHJ's statements on this in the discussion forum
contradict eir statement as judge of CFJ 1799 that "nkep certainly
is nonsensical".  I suggest that BobTHJ was correct in CFJ 1799, that
"nkep..." is nonsensical, and that therefore the judge of CFJ 1805a need
not be troubled by any alleged meaning for "nkep...".
