If the proposal ‘Icing Up’ is enacted, replace in the rule “Corporate Defence”

At any time, a Hacker may reduce its Corp Name’s Defence Score or Secrets by 1 to add any Security Measure to the right of the Security Measures list of that Corp Name.

If the proposal ‘Icing Up’ is enacted, replace in the rule “Tools of the Trade”

@ - Blaster - Reduce the Defence Value of the target Corp Name by 1 permanently before carrying out a Hack with this Tool

with

@ - Blaster - Before carrying out a Hack with this Tool, permanently destroy the rightmost Security Measure of target Corp Name or, if target Corp Name has no Security Measures, reduce the defence Value of the target Corp Name by 1 permanently

I hope this isn’t too much for one proposal.

I think that having the Subroutines Stack instead of Array Increases the value of Positioning and fits the theme better.

Also, several clarifications.

imperial Yes, this makes Amplifiers useless.

Lengthy proposals are fine, they’re just generally less likely to pass because there’s more chance of them including a broken or unpopular clause.
