Can you show me the quotes where he took it really seriously? and how they are a scum reaction? Because I'm not seeing it.

It's the way he gets defensive and keeps seriously assuring us that he isn't scum when my initial vote was, I feel, a fairly obvious joke.

Given that two different people accused me of scumslipping, pointing out that it was not in fact a scumslip is a fairly reasonable reaction imo.

Uh... I'm phoneposting so quoting everything would be a pain in the rear end, but everyone just go re-read pages 3 and 4 while keeping in mind that SSV's defense is that allegedly a whole 2 people, including Tommunist, were on the case and that's why the weird response you guys.

(Note, the too-serious response is all in the span of like 2 minutes before Tommunist even chimed in, and when Tommunist did start getting involved, if anything they were continuing the joke in SSV's favor"

Best D1 thing to go on so far, I think.

I'm a decent backup, yet you misrepresent the case entirely? The start of the actual case wasn't the "slip", it's how I responded to it.

I figured that the context of your actual response was a good starting point since you've made a point of complaining about how it's misrepresented.

merk takes a while to get going usually, but becomes a concerningly accurate scumhunter later on. imgay does nothing but shitpost. Kashuno looks scummy most of the time, regardless of his actual alignment.

To briefly and succinctly explain myself because it was a bad post:

- I think SSV's earlier post and reactions to people probing him over it were notable.
- I think Merk's absence/forgetting about the game when he tends to pride himself on his Mafia gameplay is notable.

I would vote for either of them. I phrased my post poorly by saying one thing and voting another.

Hopefully that makes more sense!

Merk was once in a game of mafia and actually convinced himself that he was scum, and with a big dramatic speech hammered himself "for the good of the town".

After the game he was legitimately shocked that he was not scum.
