Caller's Arguments:

What I'm getting at here is that the rule specifically says that
publishing reports (plural) that deviate from these regulations is a
crime. As exactly one report cannot be considered reports, then this
cannot be a crime.

========================================================================

Caller's Evidence:

Rule 2143 (Official Reports and Duties):

      Reports SHALL be published in plain text.  Tabular data must
      line up properly when viewed in a monospaced font.  Publishing
      reports that deviate from these regulations is the Class 2 Crime
      of Making My Eyes Bleed.

========================================================================

Judge Murphy's Arguments:

In the absence of explicit intent to the contrary, and the lack of
commentary from Wooble (who authored the clause in question), I
interpret the clause as a gloss for "[Each instance of p]ublishing
reports that deviate from these regulations is the Class 2 Crime
of Making My Eyes Bleed."
