Judge root's Arguments:
At the time the CFJ was called, pikhq had not voted specifically FOR
any proposal within the specified time-frame. E did, however, attempt
to vote SUPPORT on several proposals at about that time. The argument
has been advanced that SUPPORT is a reasonably clear synonym of FOR.
In a strict sense, the English words "for" and "support" are clearly
not synonyms; they do not even share any common part of speech.
However, the rules borrow these words not for their English meanings,
but merely as convenient labels for options in Agoran decisions. As
such, "FOR" and "SUPPORT" are each used as both nouns and adverbs in
the context of an Agoran decision. Furthermore, the options they
represent play very similar roles in the resolution of their
respective types of Agoran decisions. Noting this, I find that FOR
and SUPPORT are, in fact, synonyms, and I judge TRUE accordingly.
