Are you suggesting that wanting to kill lurkers twelve days into a game is no different from wanting to kill them on the first?

also there is a difference between lurking and showing up and promising to post and then disappearing. hiip wasn't a "lurker vote" except in the most cursory and general way.

Somberbrero posted:

Why do you trust Ecco?
because I'm the best :sun:

I don't like how apparently even though you read what I wrote in response to you and you went "I dunno I'm not feeling ecco anymore," you instead doubled-down on me being scum (but then shifted your vote away from me). It's really really weird.

Asiina posted:

Hello I am in this game. I think the people who have called me scummy but have not voted for me are scum.

Like 3 different people have put me at the top of their scum list but I have yet to receive a single vote.

I voted for you over JJ when I read this post during intermission fyi. Not because "oh gosh she caught me gotta CMA!!", but because I said repeatedly I'd be fine voting for you and was instead voting for someone else I said I'd be fine voting for.

This post actually does feel a bit like a "oh woe is me I am just this innocent little townsperson harassed by these big vicious scum," and I'm definitely voting for you come day 3.

It's actually the opposite. People who think I'm scum and declaring I'm scum but aren't voting for me is super weird. If you think someone is scum, vote for them or it's pointless, you are just making noise. The fact that it took Ixt until deadline to make a vote of any kind, nevermind the person he was absolutely sure was scum all drat day is so goddamn scummy.

Oh wait I guess you had one really incredibly dumb sentence in there about it "If you think someone is scum, vote for them or it's pointless, you are just making noise."

That's stupid and I'll tell you why. One, votes don't count until deadline or majority. All a vote is until that time is the exact same thing as "noise". Two, voting for someone immediately puts them on the defensive and makes it less likely for them to reply or post in any kind of productive way. Three, I feel like voting for someone solidifies that opinion more in your mind and makes you less likely to reconsider it even when you should.

And finally, there are really only two reasons to vote someone before a time your vote matters:

1. To posture.

2. To provide players who aren't paying that close attention a way to gauge peoples' opinions.

In addition to this, I have cultivated my passive-aggressive late voting meta for a long time as 3p and town more than as scum because people like you think it's scummy for stupid reasons. Your absolutism is way more scummy and counterproductive than my lack of voting.

Hear that everyone? You can only ever have as many suspicions as you do votes, otherwise it's pointless noise at best and super scummy at worst.

It's flavor time.

Flowering Time, Some Strange Corner of Space

It had been a while since part of the great union had been sent to the strange carbon-based planet they were somehow compelled to explore and outside of a few "Bzzzt SYSTEM SLIGHTLY HOSTILE Bzzzt" and "Bzzzt Our dance-based communications not helping diplomacy Bzzzzzzt" there were no messages. The elders of the hive were worried. They craved the Great Nectar and wanted more, but the dangers of this world may be too much - especially if the worst had actually happened...

Then, after a great wait. Drone 5214uuuBzzt appeared within the Core System. He had flown many hexagons to get back and he was weary. After a burst of Royal Jelly, the elders dragged him in front of the URQUEEN. She must bee told of the results.

In their strange language (a mixture of the hula and connect the dots) the drone began:

"Bzzzzt At First Planet Land Of Milk And Honey. Bzzzt So Much Nectar So Much. Bzzzt Creatures Giant But Manageable. Bzzzt Able To Figure Out Movements."

It seemed fine to the elders, but then Drone 5214uuuBzzt continued...

"Bzzt Bright Light Appeared. Bzzzzt Pretty Light Must Go Toward Light. Bzzzt Light Stings. Bzzt Light Hurts. Bzzzt Only Drone 5214uuuBzzt Survives."

Deep in space there was a day of mourning in the Hive. It would continue, but it would always regret the foolish involvement in what would be known as the Great Stinging.

I am getting genuinely frustrated with how much I'm being suspected because I feel liek I've been trying really god drat hard this game and it feels like one after another I have people just jumping at me throwing "you are 100% a scum" down my throat over something as stupid as "lol ernie died." And then saying "you haven't been scum hunting/genuinely towny."

It's freaking ridiculous especially considering how little I actually scum hunt compared to how much i town hunt and I've had to post with my head on the block the entire game with little space to breathe if at all and it's really difficult to deal with, and I've also been in what feels like MAJOR contention for scum candidate but at the same time no one seems to be trying very hard to lynch me ever since ernie died. none of that strikes you as odd whatsoever? All that's been in the thread is soft pushes/hard stances on asiina but I receive like two votes and then suddenly I'm not a candidate anymore? No one seems to think anything of that?

I have invested a lot of time effort and sleep loss in this game and god damnit I am not going to let the first time I am mislynched in months be the CPig/8bux game because people feel like suspecting me for reasons.

I mean Jfc does no one remember the time I was railroaded into the dirt as town vigilante and claimed serial killer? SOME TIMES I AT SCUMMY AS A TOWN.

Xeeto's IPO Goes Bust, Is This the New Tech Bubble?
by Sarah Lacy Jr.

We can all agree that Silicon Valley is great and never does anything wrong. In a perfect capitalist society anyone who would ever critisize the noble disruptor would be taken aside and sent to the Social media mines digging for likes and favs. Sometimes, however, there comes a bit of evidence that maybe not every whiz kid is what he says.

This is the case for Atticus Toast. It was just a few months ago that Toast was talking about the latest disruption. Xeeto was on everybody's lips at the Grove and at IceBar. He got millions from investors who wanted to see the Giant Robot biz disrupted in a pure way. But it may be that the gleam of the crowdsourced missles got in our eyes, because during it's first betatest Xeeto failed miserably. It barely graces the Top 100 on the app store and the giant robot unions have been protesting.

It also doesn't help that the recent press about Toast claiming that he's "too busy" to take interviews has left a bad taste in the mouth of the technorati and bilennials have rejected it - beferring Xeeto's competitor SnapBotly.

It's this humble reporters opinion Xeeto... is finito.
