Well.. I have decided to sue the court for lack of purpose. After reading several 2-word posts in a row (of course I expect this from GRAND, and some of them were from GRAND, I don't expect it from others) I have decided to sue the court system. Back in the day, there were around 3 issues in the court system, and they were definitely more important than today's. But it seems that the court has gotten way out of hand and lacks purpose anymore. So, I am suing the court for being a spam warehouse with no purpose.

Suing: Origin Court System
Lawyer: Unknown/Myself
Reason: Spam; the court lost its purpose and has become silly
Wanted: Forum eliminated

I'm the judge on this one. bigeyes.gif No doubt Grand will want to argue in favor of the court.

You can't judge when you are part of a side. It is him against Origin.

o_o...we need a judge, and I don't care who wins. I think I can be unbiased on this one. You and whoever else wants to get involved can argue against him.

I will be his lawyer if this takes up. The Court is fairly redundant right now (although on a non-lawyer note, I can see it having purpose in the future). Although I do not want to see it abolished, I would be willing to settle (if my client agrees) on the closure of the Court until such time as it is needed.

We have a strong Staff team, few regular members, and that wont change in the next month or two. Either the spam topics stop (there is no point in creating a 'case' just for the sake of activity), or we demand the closure/removal of the Court to enforce that the members concentrate on posting/spamming in the correct forums.

I assume Grand will be representing the Court, as he is the only member specifically mentioned in my clients opening statement?

I have consulted with my client, and we are willing to settle out of court so long as the Origin Court System is temporarily closed/removed until such time as we have enough activity to warrant it's existence.

At current we have such a small dedicated member-base and such a proficient Staffing team, that the Court is an outdated method of dealing with non-existent issues.

Furthermore, with the mere fact that the Court is around and not being used being an incentive for decent members to spam in this forum in order to make it seem active seeming to be the only reason for it's existence today, we motion for it to be temporarily closed.

Before I begin, I declare this an informal case.

The staff has its uses, but the court is to allow the staff, who are normally judges anyway, to present their rulings in public so that every decision regarding the case is made transparently.

It is to the members' and the staffs' benefit for every decision made to be as transparent as possible.

Well, I propose to the Judge that he hands down OriginXt.com a suspended sentence. That being, OriginXt.com has a period of 3 months on which to keep 'good behaviour'. If, during this time, there is no accounts of 'spam' or 'stupid topics' in the Court, OriginXt.com will be found not guilty of it's crimes against sanity and manners in allowing spam to run free. If, however, there are instances of spam or stupid topics in the Court during this suspended sentence, OriginXt.com shall be found guilty of all charges and be forced to close down the Court temporarily until such time as the Judge sees it is fit to re-open.

What say ye, Judge?

WEWT...*cough*

I would agree to those terms under one condition:

The stupid topics you referenced can only force a guilty ruling if that stupid topic/case is taken seriously. If we ignore/close it, since the court cannot be held responsible for the actions of its members, the court cannot be closed.

This ok (to both lawyers/admins)?

Yes, of course. There will be 48 hours allowed from the creation of spam/stupid topic in which the Staff may close, delete, or move said topic before a 'guilty' decision is found against OriginXt.com.

If Judge agrees, case is closed as far as myself and Wise Man are concerned.
