One would think so.

Notice also the *-taH* on a verb that has *'e'* as its object.

Given that this is a SkyBox card — fairly early as far as Okrand's 
extended prose translations go — I think this is just compounded errors 
rather than some special grammar. When people are learning to use *'e'* 
and *net,* they tend to think of them as conjunctions, which they 
aren't. Okrand may have fallen into the same trap. He also occasionally 
forgets about the taboo of putting type 7 suffixes on SAO second verbs. 
He made a lot more errors in the early days, but he's gotten a lot more 
skilled at his own language in recent years.
