Clearly, just calling a CFJ by itself works. How many levels
of ISIDTID indirection are needed before announcing that you announce
something stops working?
Judge Walker's Arguments:
I judge both TRUE. As I believe was noted in discussion, "I attempt to
do X" is a commonly accepted longhand for "X". There is an added
implication of "this might fail, but I'm not sure", but this adds
little or no ambiguity to the message: certainly not enough for the
action to fail. In fact, simply writing "X", as players would now have
to do if I had ruled FALSE, would be less helpful to recordkeepers as
they would not get the helpful pointer to double-check the success of
the action, which is clearly not in the interests of the game.
I believe than any (finite) number of "I attempt to do"-s would work,
provided that the meaning of "X", when separated from the rest of the
message, is still clear and unambiguous.
