No, it doesn't add the key word "Snake" to the Runner, but the runner
would still be vulnerable to any card that specifically references a
shaman that possesses the Snake Totem. It's a similar enough instance to
the above statement to warrant the point (IMO anyways). In both
instances, the "classification" of the runner is further defined, one
happens to be by adding a keyword, the other is from a special.

Maybe it was a good example, maybe not.

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. 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.
