==============================  CFJ 2256  ==============================

    Creating a contract in a public message constitutes an implicit but
    nevertheless clear indication that it will be public when it forms,
    unless published with an explicit and clear indication to the
    contrary.

Judge ais523's Arguments:

I judge CFJ 2256 FALSE. It is certainly entirely possible to create a
contract in a public message despite it not being public, and this has
been done many times in the past; there is no implicit expectation or
custom that merely because a contract is mentioned in a public message
it is public, and in fact most contracts intended to be public have
"this is a public contract" buried inside itself.
