CA stands for cannot answer. the CA rulebreakers are this--the host creates a puzzle where he sets up a "set of rules" for those questions/statements that he cannot answer. For example, he may have set up a rulebreaker where he cannot answer any question where a homonym for a number is included--to/two for/four ate/eight. To any question/statement that includes these words, He will write CA next to it. Next to the ones that are answerable, the host will write any response. Hope that helps. You can look at the past rulebreakers to see what they look like. In Solved Puzzles>April 2007>Check out Crazypalpig's CA Rulebreaker. This might help clear it up. Welcome aboard!
p.s. most ask questions like these in the chatroom... you'll find it at the top of the active puzzles page...

that's it....thank you for finishing this off for me before it went into lateral limbo!
*************SPOILERSPOILERSPOILER**********
---------take me away to solved-puzzle land---------
a=1, b=2, c=3, etc... Those letters and phrases that equaled a prime number were "CA", unanswerable. I'll try to think of a harder CA rulebreaker later. Good job to Crazypalpig who figured it out pretty early, and to Noobdogg for finishing it up!
