Gratuitous Arguments by Pavitra:

Absent context, it would be natural to read this as "I am a player."
However, in context, the obvious meaning of the CFJ statement is "There
is a player with the name or nickname 'I'."

The statement then becomes "Upon eir recent registration, Kenner Gordon
selected the nickname 'I'." I see no reason to interpret eir message in
this way. If e had sent either of the following messages:

> I registers.

> Kenner Gordon, "I", registers.

then it might make sense to interpret it this way. However, as it is,
the natural reading is for the unquoted word "I" to function as a
pronoun referring to the sender of the message.

Judge ais523's Arguments:

I judge CFJ 2703 UNDETERMINED. The statement is too vague due to
ambiguity to have an obvious single meaning, and UNDETERMINED is
appropriate when a statement is too vague to deduce what its truth value
is.
