My proosal is the history-rewriting one of which you speak. It contains pretty much the most effective check on your powers I can think of - if one single player objects, your statement isn't automatically legalised. And if you make a mistake, a correction such as the one you made above would work just fine.

If Wonko's proosal passes, we'll need to CFJ almost every time you make a mistake. I was going to say that something like the above, where you just miss something and correct yourself later, would be OK (because you could just recognise it later) but on reading his proosal, if you miss something out, then all your subsequent recognitions / refusals will be invalid (as per CFJ 280), as you're required to do them in the same order that the actions arrived in the forum. You'll probably have to redo them.

Of course, his will pass and mine will fail, because it's "wierd"...
