Official ruling? You been holding out on me? :) We need this for the Q&A.
If anyone has it please send it to me so I can get it included.

I am sure that is what the card meant. At least on my first reading of the
card texts. I wanted to point out the wording of the card. The H-2057 card
doesn't say he can more than 6 points of essence lost. It says he ignores
essence loss. Am I making the distinction clear enough? Cyberpsychosis
doesn't say +1 for each point of cyberware. Each says for each point of
essence lost.

Am I picking nits here? Does anyone else see the distinction?
