Re: [ga] Abusing consensus in the Transfers TF

ummmmm again reiterating that I dont even play a bankrupty specialist on TV, the
relevance is fairly simple.
Every asset (with exceptions natch or it would be too easy) of someone who is
bankrupt....is potential $$$ for the creditors.
A domain name...is an asset. The value of said asset can vary greatly, just like
listing 'car' as an asset can mean anything from a 15 year beater than can only
start going downhill to a $500k supercar, the value of a domain name....might be
something significant to creditors. And it does not matter who the creditors
are, banks, finance companies, registrars, etc. It's the relevant bankruptcy law
that governs how allllll the assets are divided up among the creditors.  The
'vested interest' has to get in line with the rest of the unsecured creditors
and hope for something left over after the secured creditors have been fed.
Attempting to do anything else via contract constitutes an attempt to circumvent
law, which is usually frowned upon.

Hope this is a bit clearer.
