spoon-discuss: Rule 17

I can't propose this yet, but how would people feel about it?

__Only You can Save the Nomiverse__

Amend rule 17 by replacing the sentence,
'Actions occur upon reaching the appropriate Fora.'
'Actions caused by players occur when they are recognized by the
Administrator. The Administrator must recognize all actions unless e
believes an action is either illegal or destructive of play. The Admin must
recongnize all CFJ's. If the Admin refuses to recognize an Action, e must
declare so in a Public Forum. All recognitions and refusals of recognition
must happen in the same chronological order as the Actions they respond to
arrived in a Public Forum.'

[[Thus, really bad ideas can be culled by the Admin, but e must recognize it
if a CFJ challenges eir lack of Recognition]]

Amend rule 28 to add the sentence 'All fora which have not been designated
as Public are Private.'

[[So now, if two players have a spoken conversation, we know that that's not
a Public Forum.]]

Amend rule 128 to replace the text,
'A Judge's decision shall have the force of law.'
'If an Action is found to be illegal by a CFJ, it may not be recognized by
the Admin or, if it already was, it is treated as if it was not recognized.
If an Action which the Admin refused to recognize is found to be legal by a
CFJ, e must recognize it.'

[Much better than that 'Force of Law' garbage.]]

Remove the last paragraph of rule 129, then remove the last sentence of rule

[[Just some cleanup. Actions don't happen until they're recognized, so no
changes are needed to prevent future "I repeal Rule 10" scams.]]

If there is a rule 10, repeal it.
Create a new Rule:
__Follow The Rules__

All game entities and the Administrator must always abide by all the Rules
then in effect, in the form in which they are then in effect.
Change the aforementioned rule's serial number to 10/1.

[[Rule 10 may look useless, but the important word there is 'all'. Without
it, what rules people are compelled to follow are unregulated, so I could
say "I declare myself immune to Bandwidth Rationing" and hey!, it's

Think this'll work?

Before speaking ill of someone, walk a mile in their shoes.
That way, when you say it, they're a mile away and you have their shoes.
