Does it always deal 1 damage to you if you try to discard this treachery?

If another investigator take action on this card it deal no damage to this investigator?

It says "after you perform an action other then the => below [suffer bad effects]".


That effect applies to the person who drew it. So they can use [Combat] test Action on the card to try to get rid of it without suffering the penalty, or they can do other stuff and suffer the penalty.

Failure at the [Combat] test lists no penalty, so the only downside to trying to remove it safely is lost time. Consequently, Getting the strongest person in the room to remove it would make good sense.
