I accept RFJ 2

My Reasoning:
According to what I understand of the Rules, Judgment can never be  
rendered more than once on an RFJ, because once an RFJ is Judged it  
immediately becomes Resolved. And Judges can only perform Judgment on  
Accepted RFJs.
Even interpreting the statement in the broadest possible way, that is  
reading it as intending:
"If Judgment is rendered more than once on the same Statement, only  
the first shall be counted" I find this is not the case. Rule 2-5  
states: "Resolved RFJs shall guide further interpretation of the  
Rules." this just means that if I submit a batch of n identical RFJs  
all at the same time, once the first one resolves, the remaining n -1  
should (but might not, depending on the creativeness of Judges) get  
the same answer. It does not mean that the remaining RFJs are  
discarded or give any less guidance once resolved (even if they all  
say the same thing). Furthermore if two identical RFJs are submitted  
in two different nweeks it is entirely possible to get two different  
resolutions, as the Rules may have changed in the meantime.

Therefore I rule this RFJ FALSE
