IMO, the card is gone as soon as the roll has taken place, and therefore
cant be targetted by another LotI anymore. Playing a card and rolling
for it is not the same action. If you wait until the die has been
rolled, your chance is over. ---Felix

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.
