If the runner manages to kill the challenge first though (ala
Skwaaaaaark), you gotta admit, that's only a good thing. In terms of
other challenges, it does make players of Street challenges where
bonuses to damage also translate to penalties to defense, think twice
about spending their Nuyen. But then that's a bit of a timing question

The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
