In message <46CA8594.firstname.lastname@example.org> The Host purportedly awarded
Levi 10 points in each of ten contests. I do not dispute the existence
of the contests or the validity of Levi acting on behalf of The Host.
Rule 2136 says:
A contestmaster may award a total of up to 10 points per week to
one or more contestants as permitted by the contest, unless e
was contestmaster of a different contest for at least 3 days of
the previous week.
This means that The Host may award a total of up to 10 points per week.
(The Host wasn't doing anything last week, so the clause after the comma
doesn't affect anything.) I interpret "may" as indicating exclusive
possibility here. Thus, I claim, The Host succeeded in awarding Levi 10
points in Host Contest 1 and then, having awarded eir maximum 10 points,
was incapable of awarding any more this week. I therefore propose a
judgement of FALSE.
Judge root's Arguments:
Rule 2136 reads in part:
A contest is an agreement that identifies itself as such, and
identifies exactly one party as its contestmaster; all other
parties are its contestants.
A contestmaster is thus specific to a particular contest, and The Host
is thus a contestmaster ten times over. I therefore do not find any
inconsistency between The Host's point awards and the portion of R2136
cited by Initiator Zefram, as The Host was acting as a different
contestmaster for each point award. I therefore submit a judgement of
TRUE for CFJ 1729.
