Answer: YES
Reasoning: Rule 4E2: "Anything that exists in the game is an Object."

Note that Rule 4E6 defines Fora as "any External Force that allows Outsiders
to communicate" and Rule 4E3 defines an External Force as "anything which
exists independently of the game. That is, it would still exist if the game
stopped existing, and would still exist if the game had never started
existing." There will be a conflict between these rules (and 4E3 would take
precedence due to its lower number) if additional Fora are created, since
they will not fit 4E3's definition of "independant of the game".
Spoon-business, discussion, and notices were (to the best of my knowlege)
created to play A Nomic, and thus would exist even if B Nomic never started
