Hmm... I'm not sure I'd describe joke-false claiming as "falseclaiming D1" as that has a lot of significance attached to it but whatever. Maybe you're derpclear is not as sure as I thought it was IN THE PASSSST
The joke explanation is a subset of "town but falseclaiming". In my original post I just didn't want to presume motives and put words in his mouth when he returns with an explanation.
Basically I was avoiding doing what Trent did.
And what me and pooka did too.
It's not too presumptuous to look at the apparently purposeless falseclaim and oddly-incongruous declaration of intent to read rules and infer that Carr is a very funny man.
But Joe's 'rejected' reaction is interesting. Joe, why do you reject me so? :'(
I don't reject you, I reject the request to clear you based on your derp.
Reason - the derp could be false.
Addendum - Reason 2 - Carr may be Slytherin but joking anyway which threatens to tarnish the purity of the derp.
