Caller's Arguments:

There's seemingly nothing stopping an impure person from Raising a Banner
if eir ribbon ownership allows, even though e's prevented from winning.
It's unclear whether the ribbon reset is a result of raising the banner on
its own, or whether failure to win prevents the reset.


Caller's Evidence:

From Rule 2438/18 (Power=3) Ribbons:
>      While a person owns all types of Ribbon, that person can Raise a
>      Banner by announcement. This causes that person to win the game.
>      That person's Ribbon Ownership becomes the empty set.

From Rule 2556/1 (Power=3) Penalties:
>      Rules to the contrary notwithstanding, an impure person CANNOT win
>      the game.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Judge ATMunn's Arguments:

Since the statement in rule 2438 stating that a person's Ribbon 
Ownership becomes the empty set upon Raising a Banner is not conditional 
upon the preceding statement that e wins the game, one can happen 
without the other. Therefore, e CANNOT win the game due to the "Rules to 
the contrary notwithstanding" clause in Rule 2556, but eir Ribbon 
Ownership is still reset.

As per the caller's arguments and mine, I find this CFJ TRUE.
