Judged FALSE by Quazie: 16 Jul 2008 18:35:53 GMT
Judge Quazie's Arguments:
R478 has two seperate definitions of Public, one a Switch state (a)
and one directly related to messages.(b):
Publicity is a forum switch with values Public, Discussion, and
Foreign (default), tracked by the Registrar.
A message is public if and only if it is sent via a public forum
or is sent to all players and contains a clear designation of
intent to be public. A person "publishes" or "announces"
something by sending a public message.
This CFJ is really asking if the public defined in (b) can be
transferred to that of (a), that is does a messages public-ness
transfer to the forum in question.
R478 also states:
The Registrar may change the publicity of a forum without
objection as long as:
(a) e sends eir announcement of intent to that forum; and
(b) if the forum is to be made public, the announcement by which
the Registrar makes that forum public is sent to all
existing public fora.
This regulates the fliping of the Publicity switch of a Forum, and as
a result the Publicity can not be switched to Public by having a
Forgein Forum be a Public Message. As such, even though the entity in
question is both a public message and a Forum, it is a Public Message
and a Forgein Forum. As a result I judge this CFJ FALSE.
