anecdote 221:d

Date: Tue Feb 03 2004 - 10:17:02 PST

Um - I don't think Joshua expected to be docked 1.5 style pointes just for
reposting the same rule.  Its not clear, but he might not have intended to
post that rule twice.  The anecdote of Joshua's is a sad one.  But
hopefully this rule will fare better, because I understand that for this
rule to have an effect on the game it must be totally unambiguous:

Future rules must point out an unexpected consequence involving at least
one previous rule.

I think the unexpected consequences of Joshua's double posting
demonstrates a real moral for FRC: Inspired but literal judging can result
in new interesting rules.
