Okay, that may defeat the spirit of the thing, but I just gotta know what that started out as...

I'm not entirely sure that's true. Perhaps someone could issue a CFJ on
it, and if it's false, pretend you never heard this message.

See, when I meant "public forum", I put in the rule "official forum".
And a "forum" is just a means by which players communicate, and that's
the most official definition there is. So, I meant for conversation on
spoon-discuss to be unaffected, but I'm not sure it works that way.

I tried to say something to that effect, except it came out as stuff
like "the spoon toe lon do" and babbling about Great Britain.

When I said 'It spreads out, it hits,' that started as 'You are
correct'. I am not kidding.

'the spoon enterprise' at least came out as a comprehensible
approximation of 'spoon-business'.

And you should see what it does to some of your names. David E. Smith is
'place bead E. su Miss'. uniquely identifying names is 'It is only and
it confirms a name'. Robin Lee Powell is 'The new windscreen piece
Powell which will cry'.

The gist of my analysis was:

Since the Administrator has never designated himself a public Forum, he
is not one, according to rule 28.

He may be considered a Private Forum, though.
