Consistent Newspaper Skip has some weird properties, compared to the Newspaper Skip done by clicking super fast. And don't worry dude, Caisang didn't do Newspaper Skip, so your points are still rock solid.

yeah, obviously pps pls has no bug or a function which can cause the audio plays faster .

I am inclined to judge that resizing the game window is an operation that is performed outside the game, not inside the game, and as such it is not allowed. The game itself does not provide tools for resizing the window; it is your operating system that provides this facility. Therefore it falls into the same category as would e.g. changing the game temporary file folder read-only or similar shenanigans.

There is an additional concern: In some cases this glitch is difficult to distinguish from having two instances of the game open simultaneously and just clicking outside in the other window. To verify that this is not the case, the runner would need to have some sort of task manager visible for validation. However, this adds an extra layer of complexity for judging. Now you not only have to judge that the game footage is valid; you also have to judge that the desktop footage is valid. This is a slippery slope I would rather avoid.

However, rather than force my decision on the matter, I will await for further input from the other moderators.
