More or less (it wouldn't make any difference if there had been a CFJ, as the action would still be made legal by r129, but close enough).

No. He failed to update *his* *records* to match my action. The *actual* rule set doesn't depend on him to update it. It's quite possible for his records to be in error. Of course, my revision of r129 would have made it work as you describe...

No. Rule 129 refers only to player actions, and the admin is (quite definite that he's) not a player. His actions are not made legal, and can still be CFJed.

No. It's a reflection of how the admin claims the rule set is - nothing more. If he changed all the rules in his records to say "monkey", would that mean that that was what the rules actually said? Well, perhaps you'd say so, but I certainly wouldn't.

> Don't know why I didn't see that earlier...
Because it's flawed on so many levels? ;-)
