[[ The Rule ]] For the purposes of the rules, and for all other purposes within the game, the term "proposal" shall be considered precisely equivalent to the far superior term "proosal". [[ ]] This means that whenever you see the word 'proposal', it should be treated as if it were 'proosal'. An analogy would be when, while doing algebra, you state that x is equivalent to 3. If x was already defined to be 5, then you haven't just defined 3 to be equivalent to 5. You've redefined the value of x. So by stating that 'proposal' is equivalent to 'proosal', that means that the value of 'proposal' is now 'proosal'. You have not, in any way, changed the definition of proosal, any more than you would have changed the definition of 3 in algebra. Or, if the rule were interpreted to mean proposal==proosal, then the rule is a paradox, because it isn't true. The triple equal thingy is a comparison operator, not an assignment operator, to use programming terminology. Anyhow, this isn't just an attempt to cause your 'scam' to fail I agree with your 'scam', and if you fix the CFJ to use the right word, I'd judge it TRUE. Your 'scam' just drew attention to this problem, which has always been a problem. -- Wonko Give a man a fire and he'll be warm for a day; set him on fire and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
