It's generally obvious that the text of a contract is binding while one
is a party to it, and not while one is not. This is about the edge
cases: the instant in which -- the action by which -- one joins or
leaves a contract.
This is most interesting, I think, in the case where joining or leaving
a partnership causes it to violate some Rule. (The particular example I
had in mind -- causing a registered partnership's basis to equal that of
another registered partnership -- turns out to no longer be in the
ruleset, but oh well.)
I agree to the following:
This is a public Legalistic pledge named Edge Case.
Any person CAN join this contract by announcement, but SHALL NOT do so
on a Sunday unless e is Pavitra.
Any party CAN leave this contract by announcement, but SHALL NOT do so
on a Sunday.
Judge Murphy's Arguments:
I interpret that the contract can bind persons as it claims, except
when such a claim would clearly violate Rules 101 and 1742 (i.e.
strictly before the instant in which a person joins, or strictly
after the instant in which a person leaves).
