Judge OscarMeyr's Arguments:

The action in question clearly could not have been taken through
email.  As the Defendant has not attempted to eliminate the subject,
the attempted action was false.  I therefore rule GUILTY.

I sentence ehird as the ninny to APOLOGY -- yielding to Goethe the
selection of the words to include in this apology -- and sternly warn
the ninny:  Do not threaten players again, for the next time the
judge should strongly consider a sentence of exile.


Appellant ehird's Arguments:

I appeal the question of my culpability on the judgement of CFJ 2082.

This is an utterly preposterous judgement, as I was assisting in Goethe's
demonstration that failing speech acts were not illegal. It was not a threat
in any shape or form.


Gratuitous Arguments by ehird:

(Note: No list of words was specified. I'll treat it as the empty set.)

Indeed, an apology is due,
to Goethe, I spoke: I'll kill you!
And though my rhyme
Is perhaps not up to the time
I apologize, indeed, for lying
That I had killed a player: that was not true
As an addition, I apologize
For this apology is too late!
I should have sent it at an earlier date.
So, Goethe, and the world of Agora
Please accept my humble...um...apology.
Indeed, an apology is what this is
(and a rather information-lacking one at that).
My behaviour was against the rules that spoke
of lying - it was not to be done. And this is filler
to make the apology longer, since I have said
all that has to be said on the topic of what's done.
Indeed, quoth a philosopher, "I think therefore I am"
and that is related somehow. Now there is intention
of a criminal CFJ against me because this is late.
Who knows what is to be of my fate?
This is a rubbish poem. Anyway, please don't hurt me.
I honestly forgot.
No joke.
I forgot.
I'm sorry.
No joke.
I am also sorry that this is a rubbish apology and poem.
No joke.
I'm sorry.

You're both right.

I did not specify any words in my ruling; I passed the right to
Goethe, who published the list as stated.

I leave it to the courts to decide if Goethe's word list was duly
published and if tusho's apology met the requirement.
