On one hand, I'm getting increasingly annoyed at 6+ link Sunny Lebeau: Security Specialist. It's extremely easy to get up there with Rabbit Hole and Security Nexus. She and her globalsec goons have put NBN in a bad place in late 2015, especially NBN: Making News and SYNC: Everything, Everywhere who rely on traces and tags. Surveillance Sweep is a nice supportive current that forces the runner to bid first, but against Sunny that matters naught when her traces start big. Net Police, hypothetically, could be a good ancient card to put these young (well, middle-aged) whippersnappers in their place.

On the other hand, it's 1 to trash. And so, it remains trashed in real life too.

do you see this working as a surprise boost to a trace? say, to make flare fire? —
