Evidence: The quoted text above, and the fact that the UNDAD defines
"degregistering" as a method of joining it. Also, note that the UNDAD
was not a contract before the message (and may not have been
afterwards), due to having insufficiently many parties.

Gratuitous Arguments by Machiavelli:

I never intended for myself to join the UNDAD; if I
had, I would have said "I degregister", not "Kyle degregisters". The
"non-registered" was meant to entail that Kyle was not me, though it
failed in doing so.


Judge root's Arguments:

Okay then.  It seems to me that Warrigal was reasonably confused about
the effects of eir message and did not willfully consent to joining
the UNDAD.  Per R101(iii), this entails a refusal on eir part to
become party to the UNDAD.  I assign a judgement of FALSE to CFJ 2237.
