Although 115 allows anyone to make any action, including the action of
creating any item, I do not see in the rule set any law compelling any
other individual to acknowledge the existence of the created item or to
acknowledge that it possesses the specific properties described by the
creator. The only entities for which the rule set compels recognition of
existence at any given time are: the laws in existence at that time (law
#101) , and propositions (as defined in law #103) for purposes of voting
(law #104).

With that in mind, I state the following.

I have not, do not and will not, until further notice, officially
acknowledge(d) the existence of any action, public or private, taken by the
citizen of Simplex known as Tom Mueller when Simplex started, or by Gabe,
known in Simplex as Mr. Harf, other than those actions which the rule set
compels me to acknowledge, namely, proposing propositions and voting on

I stress that this is not a public action, if public action were to be
defined as "A public action is any communication to all the citizens of
Simplex which
can effect a thingie," (though to my official knowledge, it as never been
defined as such before this moment) for the following reasons:
1) to my official knowledge, no thingies exist.
2) this communication, in and of itself, is not meant to affect any
thingies, should they exist, but is only a public service statement
describing certain current psychological properties of the citizen known as
Tyrrell McAllister. Whatever the effects of Tyrrell McAllister's
psychology may be, including those effects regarding thingies, they are not
contained within this communication. They are only (in part) described.
