Any organism that is generally capable of freely originating and
communicating independent thoughts and ideas is a person. Rules
to the contrary notwithstanding, no other entities are persons.
Citizenship is a person switch with values Unregistered
(default) and Registered, tracked by the Registrar. Changes to
citizenship are secured. A registered person is a Player.
A person CAN (unless explicitly forbidden or prevented by the
rules) register by publishing a message that indicates
reasonably clearly and reasonably unambiguously that e intends
to become a player at that time. A person, by registering,
agrees to abide by the Rules. The Rules CANNOT otherwise bind a
person to abide by any agreement without that person's willful
A player CAN deregister (cease being a player) by announcement.
If e does so, e CANNOT register by announcement for 30 days.
The Rules CANNOT compel non-players to act, nor compel players
to unduly harass non-players. A non-person CANNOT be a player,
rules to the contrary notwithstanding.
So the important thing here is whether scshunt is registering by
Rule 478/32 (Power=3)
Where the rules define an action that CAN be performed "by
announcement", a person performs that action by unambiguously
and clearly specifying the action and announcing that e performs
Is the action specified clearly and unambiguously? I'd say yes. Is
scshunt announcing that e performs it? No, the email is a statement of
intention, rather than a speech action as we'd normally consider it.
Thus, the timeout on registration doesn't apply to this particular
message, as it's not of the forbidden form. I don't see any other reason
why the registration would fail.
I judge CFJ 3444 TRUE.
