[Spoon-business] CFJ 1602 ruling

Statement: Wonko did not just score a Win.

Plaintiff: SkArcher
Defendant: Wonko
Judge: Glotmorf

Plaintiff's Statement:

It is possible to move within a Space in the directions indicated by Components. [[r407, Space]] - however, methods of such movement are defined in the rules, therefore rule 18 [[Permissibility of the Unprohibited]] which states that 'With the exception of Rule Changes whatever is not prohibited or regulated by the Ruleset is permitted and unregulated.' means that wonkos moves, which take place in a defined and regulated part of the gamestate, are invalid due to them being an undefined method of such movement

Judge's Ruling: TRUE

Judge's Statement:

Having commented on this already, I shall quote from Wonko's response on spoon-discuss:

Since Defendant apparently agrees with Plaintiff (or at least Judge), my ruling on this CFJ is TRUE.

I have said.
