Rather strange edge case here, but I am unsure what the answer is!

If a runner accesses an Aggressive Secretary in a remote server with 0 advancement counters on it, can the corp pay 2Credit to trash 0 programs? They might want to do this to reduce the loss from an Account Siphon.

If they can, can they also do this if the Aggressive Secretary is accessed from Archives? Or from R&D and HQ?

It could possibly be important if a runner has to hit Archives to get a Datasucker counter to be able to then do an Account Siphon on HQ and use the resulting profit to run on a remote server with an agenda. If the corp can spend the 2C then the runner will not have enough to get into the remote.

Sorry to give you such a weird edge case, but enquiring minds want to know!


Tybb-sly If the Corp wishes to pay credits to trigger when accessed abilities that have no effect, he or she can do so.
