Several I think, but the results are mixed.  ("[X] is/is not a

How does it compare to "This is a CFJ"?

(Admittedly, the numbers on that one are somewhat deflated by the fact
that many of them turned out not to be.)

No contest.  I get 14 for "is/is not a CFJ" and something over 60 for the
playerhood question (half of those are for non-natural players in the
partnership era, but even with natural persons only, playerhood wins).

Because many people like to try to loophole registration and call a CFJ as
their first "move" (by way of introduction, I guess?) over time we made the
standard pretty weak so most  attempts work.  Used to be much stricter, when
I first joined, the standard was that the potential player had to literally
"request registration" and my own registration caused a CFJ because, when I
joined, I said (clearly) "I register" instead of "I request to be
registered" and even that was controversial by the standards of the time:

I'm not sure the deflation is a huge factor in the difference - most
Arbitors seem to have left things judged not-CFJ in the archives with ID
numbers (I know I did) though they'd probably leave off ones that seemed
really trivially false.
