Caller's Arguments:

It seems that this judgement was only
made for the purposes of this joke, and it's clearly inappropriate, as
this is merely a matter of the rules being ambiguous.

========================================================================

Gratuitous Arguments by BobTHJ:

Let the chips fall where they may (though not on the judge's shoulder).

========================================================================

Judge omd's Arguments:

E is clearly GUILTY.  I sentence em to an APOLOGY with these terms:
Copenhagen
many worlds
objective collapse
quantum cryptography

========================================================================

Appellant BobTHJ's Arguments:

I appeal this decision. This should clearly be UNIMPUNGED.

========================================================================

Gratuitous Arguments by BobTHJ:

I submit the following on behalf of BobTHJ with respect to eir obligations
on CFJ 2020, as authorized by the Vote Market Contract.  -Goethe

In many worlds, perhaps in an ideal one, I would have handled the matter of
CFJ 2005 quite differently.  My objective was humor, however in using the
judicial system for said humor, I saw my objective collapse quite quickly.
It has been done in the past, perhaps not commonly, but it has been done
in the past, to include a pledge as part of an apology, for example a
specific promise not to do something again.  In this case, I pledge to
deregister within 24 hours as a sign of remorse and mea culpa, or to owe
(or lets choose someone at random) 30VP to Goethe, and this is a legal
pledge as part of an apology I am authorized to make because of course
an apology is not limited or proscribed in content!  Just kidding...I do
not in the context of this apology as a whole make any pledge, this was
merely an example of using the judicial system for the purposes of humor,
in this case used in a way to give myself, I mean BobTHJ, a momentary worry
that I might be obligated by my own apology in a not-so-nice way.  Sorry for
that, self!  You certainly wouldn’t get away with that in Copenhagen.  Ahem.
As I was saying, I am full of remorse at making such a silly judicial error.
“Sorry Alice!” from, Bob!  Hmm, I, Bob, must have some reason for mentioning
Alice?  Just came to me.  Something I was supposed to say?  Was it something
in the middle of?  Some piece of quantum cryptography?  Can’t think of it.
Well, if I was in the middle of something like, rest assured that it wouldn’t
change my remorseful apology one bit.     -BobTHJ
