I understand what the purpose of r129 is, and by r17 our actions did occur
when they reached the public fora. The problem is that the actions we took
are *not* considered to be legal due to r129 - the "such actions" r129
considers legal are those that took place more than 1 nweek ago, not those
which took place in nweek 1 (which you merely cannot call a cfj on). They
*will* be legal 1 nweek after they took place, but currently they're as
illegal as they would usually be.

As for whether a cfj on our scores is legal, it depends on what you
interpret the "regarding" clause as. Personally, I consider these cfjs to be
"regarding" nweek 1 actions, because that's pretty much what they're about,
but it's true that they don't actually explicitly refer to nweek 1 actions.
