I accept RFJ 10 and make RFJ 11 Invalid, on the grounds that it is  
the same as RFJ 10 and thus is no longer relevant in light of my  
forthcoming ruling on RFJ 10.

I render judgment on RFJ 10:
RFJ 10 (Antonio)
   a panic button is not the same thing as a Panic Button
  Plaintiff's Reasoning:
   Rule 0 states:
   > A PEP may post a message to a Public Forum or any forum that within
   > the past month was a Public Forum stating that e is Hitting eir
   > Panic Button.
   In the whole text of rule 0, the words Panic Button are  
consistently capitalized, this implies that capitalization is  
significant regarding this rule.

Judgment (Wonko)
  I Render the Judgment of FALSE on RFJ 10.
  Judge's Reasoning:
  The rules don't specify how we have to capitalize words. I agree  
that capitalization could make a difference if a word was ambiguous  
to begin with, but in the case of a Panic Button there is no such  
ambiguity, and so a "panic button" is the same as a "Panic Button"  
until such time as the rules explicitly state otherwise.

  Note that if capitalization did matter, then this RFJ would have  
been invalid, because an RFJ needs exactly one "Statement", and this  
only has a "statement" :D
