Judge Sir Toby's Arguments:

Okay, for this CFJ, I focused on the validity of Craig's message
transferring three HereYouGoKezomi to a bond, and whether or not a bond
is an entity, and can hence receive property.

For the first part, I submit as evidence Craig's report on the holdings
of HereYouGoKezomi. I note that before the transfer to a bond, Craig
created 9 units, transfered away 3 units, created 1 unit, and
transferred away 1 unit before attempting to transfer 3 units to a bond.
My calculations show that Craig owned 6 units of HereYouGoKezomi when
attempting the transfer.

When verifying the validity of the transfer against rule 1598, I account
for the following: (a), Craig's message clearly set forth the intent to
transfer one or more properties from one entity to another entity. The
question of whether or not the bond mentioned is a valid entity is
treated below.  (b(1)), all the properties being transferred were owned
by the transferor. (b(2)), Craig was the executor of the transferror.
(c), the recordkeepor received the message, since e also sent it.

To determine if the Bond being transferred to is an entity, I look at
Rule 1966, "Bonds are Property". I also look at Rule 1942, "A property
is an entity which the rules permit to be possessed by another entity."
If a Bond is Property, as specified by Rule 1966, it is also an entity,
as specified by Rule 1942.

The notice, and thus the transfer, appears valid.

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.

Rule 1598, in part:
Rule 1598/12 (Power=1)
Property Transfers

      (a) A Notice of Transfer is a message which sets forth the
          intent to transfer one or more Properties from one entity
          (the "transferor") to some other entity (the "transferee").

      (b) A valid Notice of Transfer must additionally:
          (1) specify one or more Properties all of which are owned by
              the transferor; and
          (2) be sent by the Executor of the transferor, or by a
              Limited Executor of the transferor with the authority to
              execute transfers on behalf of that entity with respect
              to all of the Properties involved.

      (c) A transfer of a Property occurs only when its Recordkeepor
          receives a valid Notice of Transfer.

Rule 1942:

Rule 1942/2 (Power=1)

      A property is an entity which the rules permit to be possessed
      by another entity.  The term "possess" refers to the legal
      status of possessing a property; the terms "possessor" and
      "owner" are synonyms, as are "possess" and "own".  Individual
      properties may not be created or destroyed, or their ownership
      changed, except in accordance with the rules.

      Each property shall have a recordkeepor, which is a player
      required to maintain a record of who owns that property.  The
      Treasuror is the recordkeepor for each property that would
      otherwise have no recordkeepor.

      If one of the official duties of an officer is to be the
      recordkeepor of a property, then eir Weekly Report shall include
      this record and any changes thereto since the last posting of
      eir Report.

Rule 1966, in part:

Rule 1966/0 (Power=1)

      Bonds are Property.  Each Bond, in addition to being a Property,
      has the following characteristics:
