Maybe I didn't make myself clear. Basically what I was trying to say was
that when a card makes reference to "each runner", "all runners" or
mention of the word runner it only effects Runner cards. FASA has stated
that Spirits/Drones should be treated like a Runner when it comes to
determining the damage they deal, take and their fatigue...

So cards that make reference to Runners, only deal damage to Runners.

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.
