Gratuitous Arguments by woggle:

I sent the SLR on time to the yoyo backup list (agora-official was Foreign at
the time), but it was held for moderation:

Your mail to 'Nomic' with the subject

    [Rulekeepor] Short Logical Ruleset

The reason it is being held:

Judge omd's Arguments:

I assume the defendant received the bounce message immediately after
attempting to post the ruleset, so e could have reasonably avoided
breaking the rule by various methods, such as splitting the ruleset
into parts or possibly posting a link to it along with its hash.
However, all of these workarounds are fairly annoying, so a light
punishment is appropriate.  GUILTY/COMMUNITY SERVICE, destroy 1 VC (as
a R2354 cost for completing the task) within 1 month.


Appellant woggle's Arguments:

The message was eventually delivered. Per CFJ 1646 and CFJ 2058, it was sent
when it left my technical domain of control, which was before the deadline.
Even if this precedent does not apply, on its basis, I could have reasonably
believed that my inaction did not violate Rule 2143.


Judge omd's Arguments:

NOT GUILTY.  Per my previous arguments, I am overruling the precedent
in CFJ 2058 that the time of publication should be counted differently
for the purpose of determining whether an officer has fulfilled eir
duties than for all other purposes, as I am not aware of any
reasonable rule basis for it.  However, as the Accused states, e could
have reasonably believed that the precedent did apply and that e thus
did not violate Rule 2143.
