Judged TRUE by woggle: 19 Jul 2008 04:24:42 GMT
Gratuitous Arguments by root:
The statement is not UNDECIDABLE, because it is capable of being
accurately described as true.
The statement is not IRRELEVANT, because its veracity determines the
existence of the CFJ.
The statement is obviously not FALSE.
The statement is not vague or nonsensical, and there is no lack of
information for the judge, so the statement is not UNDETERMINED.
The only option left is TRUE.
Judge woggle's Arguments:
I accept the caller's arguments on truth if this CFJ exists.
The remaining quesiton is whether the announcement was sufficient to
initiate a CFJ. R591 permits root to initiate an inquiry case "by
announcement which includes the statement to be inquired into". The
straightforward meaning of roots statement is certainly that e
initates an inquiry (as CFJ is a firmly a verb meaning to "initate a
CFJ" in Agoran jargon and CFJs on statements of this sort can only be
inquiry cases), and it certainly does include statement being inquired
into. I find that "this statement", in context, is also not ambiguous
in a way that would cause problems with R2208.
