I'm going to challenge this but on one limited ground. As I understand it, when a resolution is repealed, it no longer exists on the books. That means that any reference to a repealed resolution basically means that you're referring to a nonexistent resolution, and it' a house of cards violation on ...

I agree with Ara, that this is a metagaming violation, but my reasons are different, so this is essentially a separate challenge. If you were just referring to the WA membership, you would only use the word "delegates" (referring to national delegations to the WA) or "members" (t...

Is it ok to be Atheist (an autistic atheist) but very interested in Greek Orthodoxy? Having attended a fair few Roman Catholic and Church of England services in my time (because of school or family) I can say that their liturgy is quite dull compared to the elaborate beauty of Orthodoxy

Elsie: I don't think you understand how definitions work. When the law does what the law says, that doesn't mean that it does anything beyond what the law says. Otherwise, it would be a very strange world, how these invisible clauses keep popping in out of nowhere. Perhaps that is what your world a...
