Thank you, thank you *takes a bow*

Now *cracks fingers* the release of that particular piece of footage was the
only reason Gutsys was created at all, so if any self-righteous moralist
out there feels the need to do something nasty to him, I'm game. Not too
nasty, mind you, I think the character has some potential and intend to
keep him (her?). But say, Zippy fraggin' his construct would be o.k.

Just consider one thing - This character deals with the seedier elements of
society, and is likely to react violently, although indirectly (i.e. hiring
a hitman, for example) if his 'biz' is damaged a lot.

The footage - Zelf and Doe should not really get any info out of it.
Rumormonger will certainly recognize the characters involved. It's up to
him to distribute the file to others. Any other character that may be
interested will not, repeat, not have any knowledge of these events, unless
they are directly told so by the posessors of the video. Nyah.

The meet between Zelf and Gutsys - Hmm. Gutsys wouldn't really want to risk
his expensive self, so he (she?) will probably send a messenger to the meet,
unless you have any ideas Mr. Brown. Also, the footage of John Doe, I assume
is part of a plot you want to further. Gutsys will try to sell it to
Rumormonger, unless he can make any profit of it by himself. In any case, it
will be shown. Contact me if you want anything more elaborate done.

Oh, yeah, while I'm at it - The corp messages thing. As I said, I like the
actual posts so far, but I really wouldn't like the shadowland bbs to become
'the corp's security messages clearing house'. Moderation, is everything ;)
