I once had a deck, that actually tried to do this. Unfortunately my
opponent was prepared and had 4 Siskos in his deck. So sorry, no
arresting. I tried then then to handle with this, but I soon found out,
that if I concentrate on arresting my opponents runners by all means, my
deck will hardly do anything else.

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.
