Observe: SSV over-eggs the pudding on his read on me. Meinberg throws down a vote, ljtrigirl pops in to agree with Meinberg without taking action.

I think Meinberg's vote so early on is too risky for typical scum play.
ljtrigirl though made a low effort post which appears to engage with the game but has no value.

It's the first time Meinberg's made a post in game that I liked, so I found it notable.

Mafia is a game built on trust, so

It's okay, I come from a strange place and speak with an amusing accent, I'm used to this ostracism.

Hey Taste I've always had the impression you're good at reading people and their posts. Anything come off forced to you as of yet? Something about Ljtrigirl rings false and Birdstrike seems too combative early on, but the thing is I haven't read or played a game with either of these two players ever. And for the majority of the roster it's pretty much the same thing. Only players I'm familiar with to some extent are Foo, Taste, Hal, and Anon. I've heard a lot about Meinberg via proxy but that's about it.

do you feel it's more the combo of birdstrike and ljtrigirl? because i have issues with their posts seperately, but the interactions aren't really pinging me. the birdstrike mafiadad post is really silly but i'm not sure i'm willing to drop the disingenuous-word right now. ljtrigirl's defense of her agreement is kind of weird.

it was also his first post with real content that wasn't smalltalk, maybe third if you want to stretch it. the thing is though, the smalltalk posts weren't avoiding saying things, they were occurring in early thread boot.

Yeah it was kind of random. I assumed you two had some torrid history together or something. Also I don't love posts that are like "hey someone else make some content so I can riff off it" posts.

And see how his post has indeed generated content! I'll agree that some basic polling and questioning of others isn't too out of line at this phase. Personally, I can see his thought process and it's a null for me, with the potential to swing either way based on future content.

As a note, I've arrived in AC and intend to stay in my hotel room fairly often and enjoy the relaxing environment. I hopefully will be able to keep up with things, baring my occasional trips to the floor.

I think we run a real risk of being steam rolled if we're not careful. Days promise to be fast and plurality favors apathy. Town has everything to lose by keeping quiet.

This is an odd post because everything it contains is self evident. I also don't like the use of 'we'.

Sorry for being silent while stuff was happening, I was busy being asleep and then being busy running to work.

Bird, I don't know how to read that post. It feels more like anxious town to me, but of course that raises the question of why they're anxious. I do agree that slipping in that "we" to make sure that they are seen as associating themselves with town is bad, but I wouldn't say that's worth putting a vote down.
