I create the following contract, with myself as the sole party: { Gaelan
CAN act on Trigon’s behalf to transfer three coins to Gaelan. Upon Gaelan 
doing so, this contract is destroyed. }

I cause Trigon to become a party to the above contract.

I act on Trigon’s behalf to transfer three coins to Gaelan, destroying the
contract.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Judge Murphy's Arguments:

Trigon did not clearly consent to the contract in question:

   1) By default, purported actions within signature blocks do not
      clearly indicate that the author performs that action. And while
      SEAMSTRESS allows Trigon to veto such additions, it doesn't say
      that if e doesn't, then this default is overridden.

   2) "I'm always happy to become a party to contracts" can reasonably
      be interpreted narrowly as "I'm always happy to become a party to
      contracts /if I become a party to them at all/".

As the transfer depended on Gaelan acting on Trigon's behalf per this
contract, and the latter was ineffective, so the former was also
ineffective. FALSE.
