Re: Invalidate "purging AI is metagaming" ruling

My last term was dominated with redrafting the RP rules. This term seems like it may be dominated by the Year of Silipol. I would genuinely burn it down wholesale and start from scratch using any lessons learned. Instead of prescribing every minor nitpick in excruciating detail, I think Silipol 2023...

If your entire argument is that everything in the original ban is baseless and you're a blameless saint just waiting for the headmins to overturn it all, then you need to take a course in room reading because you're highly unlikely to get that exact outcome. You can gun for it, sure - but don't mist...
