I think perhaps we should ask the question, are there any players at all?  I 
could submit a Request for Judgement on the following statement:  The Player 
called Joel Uckelman is incapable of passing the Turning Test, and thus is 
not a player.  Since Joel's status as a player is called into question, could 
he be a judge?  And who would administer the Turing Test?  Perhaps we need an 
Officer in Charge of Administering Turing Tests.
Of course I won't submit such an RFJ lest, for that act of sabotage, I be 
crucified. ;)
