Caller's Arguments:

Warrigal joined the contract in question voluntarily, so was
certainly party to it at some point. The contract purports to prevent
Warrigal leaving it for as long as ais523 is a party:
{{{
ais523 CAN leave this contract by announcement. Other persons can leave
this contract only if ais523 is not a party to it, in which case they
can leave it by announcement.
}}}

As ais523 has continuously been a party to the contract in question, the
only way that Warrigal could have left it is via rule 101; that's what
this case has been called to determine.

See also CFJ 2381, which was seeking to establish the solution to the
same questions, but was marked UNDETERMINED due to lack of specificity;
this CFJ was called per the request of the judge there.

Judge woggle's Arguments:

I judge [late] TRUE. The right to cease playing, even if it allows one
to cease to be obliged to perform the actions required by contracts
(and thus temporarily cease to be considered a party), does not help
people when they, in fact, continue playing as Warrigal's recent
actions clearly suggest e is doing. Also, I am not aware of any way in
which Warrigal might have left the contract in question.
