Caller's Evidence:

Trigon wrote[0]:
> The following text comprises a public message:
> {{{ DISCLAIMER:  There are no game actions in this message. }}}

Caller's Arguments:

Rule 478/38 reads in part:
      A public message is a message sent via a public forum, or sent to
      all players and containing a clear designation of intent to be
      public. A rule can also designate that a part of one public
      message is considered a public message in its own right.

There is no rule that designates the DISCLAIMER part of the message in
evidence as a "public message in its own right", therefore the exception
doesn't apply, and claiming that the DISCLAIMER text is a message in its
own right is ISISTIS (I say it is therefore it is).  Because R478
explicitly enables a rule to designate part of one public message as a
message in its own right, doing so is regulated as per R2125(1).
