In context, it seems reasonably clear that "that" was intended as
a reference to the "ratification is ineffective" clause.
Judge G.'s Arguments:
First, in a thread with multiple replies, I have often replied to a later
message in the thread when the point I was replying to was several quotes
earlier in the thread. Just for the convenience of not going back to find
the earlier one. So following an "In-Reply-To" is no guarantee of what
point was being referred to in the whole thread.
Second, even within the supposed referenced message, it just so happens that
that that which is that that that that that refers to is not that clear.
Therefore, this supposed deregistration was a wholly ambiguous conditional,
and failed. TRUE.
