If you hold your ear up against your monitor screen, you will probably
hear the sound of Scouts-l'ers exploding with the effort of not offering
the advice you don't want ;^)
Let me answer your question by asking it another way: How would a SM
stop a transfer? What does he have to do or sign to allow one?
If another Troop is willing to accept a Scout, there's not a thing you
can do about it. You could make his life difficult by not getting
his advancement record in order, but that seems pretty small to me.
