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.

This sounds like a pretty compelling reason to keep him around, honestly.

I've only skimmed the thread today since I've been mostly busy, so I don't have any real town or scum reads yet. Tomorrow I have a decent block of time that I can read in depth though, so that'll probably change

Everything is a construct.


So AnonymousNarcotics has made one real actual post in this game:

AnonymousNarcotics posted:

Hello I am here.

Tommunist attacking SSV for an innocuous post is pretty scummy.

No vote, just a accusation/comment on my post (which was a joke post).

i ask questions about this post

Tommunist posted:

how does this read to you in the context of joke phase

Tommunist posted:

Yo quick question why am i more scummy for my joke accusation then say EXAKT (who has since transitioned from jokingly questioning SSV to seriously putting a vote on him) or CCKeane.

And AnonNarc doesn't respond, and hasn't said anything in the game at large.

This sort of drive by accusations along with the lurking/non-willingness to engage with me feels scummy

SSV did a similar thing in archer lylo which busb called out as a scumslip after the game. I didn't see it as a slip personally but I can see why it was brought up.

I agree with this vibe so far, but a lot could change when Anon shows up. Right now I think SSV is a good vote, MMG sounded kinda dodgy too. Bird would be my other main pick, although I was really hoping I could wait till the end of the day to say anything, cause he's been kinda salty lately about getting voted out way too early a lot, so I'm calibrated to think he tends to be townier than he appears.

I don't see it as a scumslip either! Nothing SSV has said is a "slip", it is just scummy-sounding reactions after the fact, this is not a complicated case dammit Birb

I wouldn't bother opposing it, but I didn't have the same reaction others had to seeing his latest posts as scummy. More of a personal vibe I guess, to me it sounded like I sometimes get if I'm checking in trying to establish where I'm at and where votes could be moving. But I sound scummy a lot, so again, wouldn't bother trying to stop it cause its a fair D1 case as any.

You just seem to be reading everything as weird that I see as totally fine, or vice versa. Kat saw it too when you tried mentioning my early godfather joke as strange.

I'm not sure if it's just having different tone settings, or actual scumminess though. I think SSV is a better vote for having those reactions in the first place. But the more you make posts like that where you still call it a scumslip, it seems like you could be trying to reframe and defend SSV rather than just not getting it.

We're in a day one slap fight, somebody is going to get voted off and we can all act smug or shocked at the results, depending in outcome.

From there we will further manufacture cases, ostensibly based on behavior during day one in light of the flip, but actually based on personal likes or dislikes.

I don't know if there is a meta friendship here but I want to draw an attention to why did Quidnose got namedropped and AnonymousNarcotics with significantly fewer posts got ignored.

The postcount server is hosed though so we're all probably making really haphazard attempts at pretending we know who is lurking anyway. Plus I don't think lurking D1 means anything.
