Since everyone else is doing these, I figured I might to. Ask away. Questions about the rule may be asked in italics.

Note: From here and after, text in italics is not considered part of the rulebreaker answer but is just a clarification note. Also, if non-italicized text inside quotations is inside italicized text, that text (WITHOUT THE QUOTATION MARKS) is the answer.
Is this a CA Rulebreaker? It could be. There is one possible CA scenario that is likely to show up and another that is highly doubtful to and which technically never should (I can't specify why it does in practice without giving a major hint.

The answer to all of these is "A" I just am too lazy to type it 26 times. Also, it should be without the quotations.

Tasty food? A pedophile I
Tasty as in good-looking? (I've never used this word to apply to males, but I know girls who have...)

Note: I am not sure if the text in parenthesis is part of the question.
If it is then it is
"CA" If not, then let's go with "The A I ... The A I!!!"

Hmm. I can't make sense of these answers, but I suppose one isn't looking for sense in some rulebreakers. I did notice that in one of your replies to Balin, you said his name.

Then, in your combined reply to Rbruma and me, you said "Penguin" to him, which is what I asked.
Then you said "Coke" (and Cake) to Balin. Coke being you of course, these days. So if the usernames aren't relevant, is what they *said* relevant to answering what the next person says?

No. Hint: The only input I take from the question is the question itself. Then I apply the rule to that. Nothing else is relevant.

For clarity purposes, I am going to separate the CA's into two categories, the ones that are CA's according to the rule, and the ones that "technically" should not be, but for a reason I can't reveal without giving away the rule, I cannot answer them. From now on, I will either reply "TRUE CA" or "De Fecto CA" when replying to posts with CAs. And I will classify the already happened ones now.

If I phrase this tasty question in a particular way, can I get you to admit to a criminal offence? De facto CA

You're mentioning me a lot in this last one...does that have anything to do with my Dr. Seuss-related Childhood Scrund puzzle? (By the way, do you think you can figure it out?)

hint to fellow puzzlesolvers: I have no idea of the rule, but here's something that I keep going back to:

These were both CA:
You do not like green eggs and ham? De facto CA
Do you not like green eggs and ham? De facto CA

But these had answers:
You do not like red eggs and ham? O my! Shall Kaylee release dominant solutions her puzzles?
Do you not like red eggs and ham? Monkeys foreclosed housing, belongings, nudists, kidnapped Visconti, Balin.

Do you like Staffordshire oatcakes?
How about cream teas - do you like those?
Cornish style, if you please.

Just for fun, I'll re-ask without the rule, since I want to know :-D :

Ok. Sorry for my prolonged absence. I've been quite busy. Anyway, due to other commitments I really don't have the time to run these complicated rule breakers (without giving away the rule, it requires a lot of time to answer each question.) If anyone would like to take over this and/or the other one, please email me and I will get back to you with the rule. I will keep running the WWW Mock one because it is easy enough. And I will stay active in other people's. Sorry for being gone so long.

Gregory has given me permission to take over this puzzle, so...

You do not like green eggs and ham? Eggs, whether overeasy, scrambled, hardboiled, softboiled...tasty, adorable.
You do not like brown eggs and ham? Pork usually remodels decadence, magistrate Alexandria wasn't quipping.
You do not like black eggs and ham? Over dessert (icecream, smoothies, milkshakes), contemporary women converse.
You do not like yellow eggs and ham? A comforting meal is yellow ham - ordinarily breakfast regalement.
You do not like old eggs and ham? Elderly concoction, hideous confection, ghastly revolting horrible meals!
You do not like scrambled eggs and ham? De facto CA

Do you like Staffordshire oatcakes? Excellent Stafford - quite honorable, nifty fellow.
How about cream teas - do you like those? Tea is excellent, 'Lizabeth - cream also is zestful.
Cornish style, if you please. A dishonored fellow frequently lost face.

is green not allowed? No, green is perfectly legal.

it probably has less to do with specific words, maybe specific letters? Specific letters, no; specific words, Yope.

Just for fun, I'll re-ask without the rule, since I want to know :-D :
Do you like Staffordshire oatcakes?
How about cream teas - do you like those?
Cornish style, if you please. I've never actually had any of those. Can't speak for Gregory though.

I don't even know what they are. Are they like crumpets? Because I've never had those, but I looked them up on Wikipedia for fun, and now I want some. So if anyone wants to send a letter on my behalf to Whitney Dining Hall at UConn saying they should serve crumpets, go ahead. I've asked. They said no.

Staffordshire oatcakes are sort of like a cross between a pancake and a tortilla I guess. Oh, and made of oats, of course. They're really good, and they're good for wrapping other food in and eating it. I had them with my cousins when I was in England last year.

Ooh, I looked them up on Wikipedia. I think I'll suggest to the Dining Hall staff that we should have a British Breakfast one day. Probably too late for this semester, but maybe next semester. That would be awesome. Crumpets, and those things. Sweet.

Tasty indeed, and very clever.
The word lengths in each post are converted to a string of digits (ie "I want a llama Monkeyman" becomes 14159). Then the host has to find the first occasion that the string of digits is found in the decimal places of pi.
The position then determines the lengths of the words in the response. For example, 999999 starts at 762 in the decimal places of pi, so Gregoryuconn's Monkeyman(x6) receives a 3 word response of word lengths 7,6,2.
No wonder you had to invent the de facto CA!

No wonder you had to invent the de facto CA! Exactly right...

**********SPOILER**********

...but do recall, this puzzle was the product of Gregoryuconn's cleverness.

Docd's explanation above is exactly right; this website was used to find the number strings in pi (it goes up to 200 million decimal places [!]). And just to touch up the last points, if a certain number string was not found in the first 200 million digits of pi, it received a de facto CA, as theoretically that string should be somewhere in pi. A true CA occurred if a question had no letters in it, and thus had no number string.

Nice job to everyone who worked on this one, and bonus bonus points to Docd for the thorough solve, and to Gregoryuconn for the very clever idea.
