Judge t's Arguments:
The caller of this CFJ has decided that it is appropriate to call a CFJ
without giving any evidence. This might be true in some cases but here it
is not. The judge has to go and find evidence of a transfer mentioned in
the statement of this CFJ and decide whether the reference to a transfer
is unambiguous - there might have been more than one such transfer. The
court would like to express its annoyance before giving judgement.
The statement refers to "Craig's transfer of one HereYouGoKezom to
Michael's Pot-Plant". The court appends to its judgement as evidence three
messages posted to the mailing lists. The first message contains the
alleged Notice of Transfer and the second message the records of the
holdings and transfers of HereYouGoKezomi. The third message confirms that
Michael does indeed own some pot-plants. The court concludes that the
first message is indeed the Notice of Transfer the caller intends to refer
to (there is no evidence for any other transfers to any pot-plants) and
that the pot-plants referred to are real.
The Notice of Transfer (exhibit 1) is a transfer of one HereYouGoKezom
from Craig to "Michael's pot-plants". Yet the statement of the CFJ refers
to a transfer to "Michael's pot-plant" (exhibit 2 seems to claim that
exhibit 1 is this transfer but this is clearly false). These are obviously
two different things. As the statement of this CFJ refers to a transfer of
which there is no good evidence, it lacks standing and is therefore

I mint one HereYouGoKezom and transfer it to Michael's pot-plants.

Because the HereYouGoKezom was created for the sheer CFJing pleasure, I am
assuming for the time being that every transfer succeeds. This is not
guaranteed to hold up in court.

Yes. Yes. The latter.
