Caller's Arguments:

By "3833" I mean the Proposal G. Chaos tried to distribute
by itself in his message of 7 Feb., entitled "The Grand Agoran
Tournament" and given the designation 3833. As another CFJ made by
me will determine, Proposal "3833" was in fact distributed earlier,
although at the time of this CFJ it has not been given an official
number. The distribution of "3833" was illegal because at the time
G. Chaos attempted to distribute it, there was no such Proposal in
the queue (it having already been distributed), and a number of
Proposals equal to the batch size had already been distributed
(namely the aforementioned unnumbered Proposal, 3831 and 3832.).
Therefore, G. Chaos had no authority to make such a distribution.

==========================================================================
Judge's Arguments:

As elJefe has made clear in his judgement of CFJ1121, there was only
ever one proposal.  In his statement, Vlad refers to it as Proposal
"3833".  This proposal is the same proposal that was on the queue, and
this is also the proposal that was distributed by General Chaos on
Monday (GMT) in the message with ID:
199902080122.uaa2066-@poverty.bloomington.in.us

This proposal wasn't distributed with a proper number initially, only
gaining one when General Chaos's second post was made, but this
retrospective correction, did not deny the original distribution of
legal effect.  Hence the proposal that Vlad refers to was properly
distributed, and is up for vote.

Therefore I enter a judgement of FALSE.

Documentation attached by Caller:

Text of Rule 1770:
Rule 1770/2 (Power=1)
Distributing Proposals

      Each week, the Promotor shall distribute a batch of Proposals.
      These are the only Proposals e is allowed to distribute that
      week.

      If the number of Proposals in the Proposal Queue with a
      Priority greater than zero is less than or equal to the Batch
      Size, then the batch shall consist of all such Proposals.

      If the number of Proposals in the Proposal Queue is greater
      than the Batch Size, then the batch shall consist of those
      Proposals in the Queue with the highest Priority such that the
      number of Proposals distributed is equal to the Batch Size.

      Once a Proposal is distributed, it is removed from the Proposal
      Queue.

      The Promotor shall distribute each proposal in the batch to the
      Public Forum, accompanied by its Number and the identity of
      its Proposing Entity.

      The failure of the Promotor to distribute any of the above
      accompaniments with a Proposal does not deprive the
      distribution of the Proposal of any legal effect.

      A Proposal is only considered to be legally distributed if it
      is explicitly marked as such. The Promotor is permitted to
      publish the text of undistributed Proposals without necessarily
      distributing them.
