As I said...

...I was using "corporation" to mean a joint-stock company with limited liability: this is what people are generally talking about when they talk about corporations, at least in my experience.

LLC as I used it is a regrettable pleonasm, as a corporation has limited liability by my own definition.

REPEAT: I AM NOT using these terms as they are used in existing law.

But thanks though for another exciting installment of the "let's argue over who's stipulative definitions are correct" show.

All real contracts require informed agreement

Of course. Have I said anything to the contrary?

All parties not only must be aware of the terms, but must prove this by signing an agreement.

Nonsense. An exchange of property titles occurs when an agreement is reached, period. A written document is merely a record showing that an agreement was reached, useful in the event of a future dispute.

In a free society, you cannot state a "default" contract by throwing cute letters after your name.

Who said you could? Not I. I have said over and over again that limited liability is conferred by contract. I never suggested that a firm acquires limited liability for all its dealings by simply changing the name it calls itself. Again, you seem to be obsessing over current law, which has no bearing whatsoever on this discussion. You're attacking the current law re corporations, not what I'm saying - which is why I keep pointing out that you're attacking strawmen.
