Two Muresh Bodysuits wouldn´t prevent the first two meat damage, right?

Two Muresh Bodysuits wouldn´t prevent the first two meat damage, right?

If this works like Net Shield, which has similar wording for net damage, then no. It can only prevent the first meat damage each turn and only 1 point of it.

From the Netrunner FAQ:

How much damage does Net Shield prevent?
Net Shield prevents a single point of net damage. It does not
prevent all net damage from a single source.
The rules are pretty fuzzy on that.

IMO, the above FAQ answer does not relate to the question in any way, cause the case is about having one Net Shield and more than one net damage from a single source.
What happens if there are two net shields?

2x Muresh Bodysuit vs. Private Security Force (three clicks) seems simple - first damage is prevented, hence it didn't happen, which means click 2 meat damage is now the first net damage this turn and is prevented.

If that interpretation is correct, it means Muresh is dedicated tech vs. PSF, typical Gabe likes to keep his tags, and 2x Bodysuit on the table let's him do it in such a situation.
You could argue that

Still, it remains pretty bad vs. scorched earth, even with favorable interpretation of the rulings, only 3x Bodysuits will prevent the generally expected 2x Scorched Earth from killing you at 5 cards. Overall, Plascrete Carapace remains the better card, unless there's a replicator on the table.

first damage is prevented, hence it didn't happen, which means click 2 meat damage is now the first net damage this turn and is prevented.


Applying this reasoning would actually make a single Muresh Bodysuit prevent infinite meat damage, since the second meat damage would now be the first, therefore prevented, which would make the third the first, therefore prevented, etc.

The card costs 1 credit and has 1 influence cost. The first meat damage is the first meat damage, whether it is prevented or not. If it were stackable, we'd expect wording like "prevents 1 meat damage," not "first meat damage," which wording only makes sense if 1) it is not stackable and 2) this notion that the first damage is no longer the first damage when an effect has prevented it is nonsense
