    I am off to London today, in the meantime you can all debate this:-

    Condition 16 and 17 of the Conditions of Registration are separate but complimentary, and neither one 'overrules' the other. They are for different situations and have different requirements.

    In any event the appeal panel did not order transfer so in your case the point is moot.

    For your info the word Moot means one of the following:-

    Debatable
    arguable
    doubtful
    controversial
    unresolved
    disputable
    unsettled
    unlikely

    My note: Who was disputing the Appeal decision? I thought the point being disputed was the remedy 'transfer' by the initial experts. What condition of the contract was broken to give Nominet the right to transfer a domain name.

    I always thought "moot" in that context meant irrelevant based on the evidence presented.....but then the last time I was in school they had respect for the teachers

    teach something worth teaching

    therefore the word is in itself debatable, Microsoft Word is either better or worse than your education

    Teaches need to teach something worth teaching or change the subject

    Sorry but microsoft word on this ocassion may be flawed,

    "A moot point, however debatable, is one that has no practical value. When using moot one should be sure that the context makes clear which sense is meant."

    Wrong on two counts

    In that case its wrong on two counts:-

    Count 1 - wasn't the point be argued

    and

    Count 2 - you cannot accurately interpret the sentence without clarification of the word moot

    That deals with that part....howabout the part re: circumstances when condition 16 and 17 do or don't apply. Emphasis on the word 'different'.

    "Condition 16 and 17 of the Conditions of Registration are separate but complimentary, and neither one 'overrules' the other. They are for different situations and have different requirements."

    Using the phrase moot after referring to these 2 conditions in this way strikes me at the very least as double talk, if they are for for "different" situations then they are not in fact moot but completely irrelevant.

    ah

    ah....we are getting somewhere

    How do they apply in difference circumstances....condition 16 deals with breaking the drs whilst condition 17 explains what Nominet can and cannot do.

    So under 17 Nominet can transfer a domain name but then one must ask what condition has the registrant broken...obvious condition 16 ....but condition 16 says they won't transfer the domain name but cancel or amend it
