I initiate a criminal CFJ on the matter, and recommend a double penalty
as ehird has given no information as to why the penalty is incorrect.
(If e gives such information, I may continue to recommend a double
penalty, depending on how persuasive it is.)

As gratuitous arguments on the resulting CFJ, I submit the above
inner-quoted NoV message, and also the sentence "See CFJ 2303 for more


Judge Taral's Arguments:

Confusing? Yes... null strings, although manageable, tend to mess up
sentence parsing.  :)

Annoying? Yes.

Double penalty? It's not like he was screaming at everyone to quit
calling him ehird.

GUILTY/APOLOGY. Set of prescribed words: {frank, indecent,
recalcitrant, obnoxious, pig-headed}


Gratuitous Arguments by ehird:

Well, I see that the obnoxious, pig-headed judge Taral has
told me to apologize for changing my name to the null string.
However, it has been judged that such a name change did not
work. Therefore, I will take the recalcitrant move of making
the apology not much of an apology, and indeed attempt to
make it as indecent as possible. I am sure that if Frank
Sinatra were here today, he would congratulate me for this
bold move. This is a protest against the ridiculous
sentencing of a crime I did not commit, or perhaps a result
of boredom and who the heck takes apologies seriously anyway
don't answer that? So, I could make a real apology, but
really I am just tasked with filling up 200 words of sensical
English text that happens to include certain words. And this
is my effort to do so. I will probably stop at exactly 200
words, even if that is in the middle of a sentence. To be
honest, this is just filler now. I love filler, personally.
It makes apologies really great. And here comes the end,
indeed, only a few more words to go. And now we come to
