Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
Is this AI or UI?
"The intent of the Laws is expressed in their wording." Fair enough. But wording is not always perfect. As has been pointed out, it would be very easy to make the wording state very clearly the interpretation you have decided to put on it. But the Lawmakers have not done ...

ER: Your post almost confirms my argument. "Transgression" you are happy to use a dictionary version of, whilst sticking to the bizarre bridge laws concept of "may". Meantime, I do not need to read the introduction again as I specifically mentioned that the interpretation of "may" was given "elsewhere", and ...
