The loosing rep side of it is IMO part of the fun of doing the mission. Its like any other tempter.. Will you dare to do it or not.. But i do take your point. What you have to remember however is.. It is far easier now to regain that rep with the bbs donation scripts.. So not really a big issue. Only issue you have is your conscience. Do you feel bad about killing that paranid or not <G>. Well do you feel lucky punk ( going into clint eastwood mode for a moment hehe).
