Sure, we can if you want but maybe it won't be necessary. After sleeping on it I see an exchange like this:

Me: "Can you tell me precisely what you even actually mean when you say 'you disagree with my initial jab'?" (provides a few examples of how even just this one sentence can be read in a few different ways)

You: "Wow. I've clearly said [repeats exact phrase I specifically asked you to clarify]"

And think, wow we must just have some really serious gaps in how we communicate, that end up driving us nuts in Mafia where attempts to clear them up can't be trusted at face value. I really haven't meant to patronise you, but I can see how it would very easily sound and feel like that when I start trying to pick everything apart so much until I can locate and pin down the exact cause of where you could be misunderstanding me. And when I drop that kind of sendoff.

For what it's worth, yesterday didn't get me really upset at all, just increasingly frustrated. And I thought, man if this had been back in the oldschool Auspol days, this woulda been where I start just browbeating everyone with a naked emotional plea to get you lunched no matter what. My suggestion for changing up your playstyle wasn't only meant as a put-down of your playstyle in this game. (I won't try to deny that element was there though ) I remember you saying recently that you do like to try and change things up sometimes, and I really do think it might be an interesting experiment. It'd certainly throw off the thing that always gets you on my scumdar, at least. But yeah, talking about this kinda thing is more awkward when a game's still on so I'll try and save it till then next time.

I've had a nice streak of a couple really fun chill games lately, at least by my standards, where I can still get all in scum's face but it hasn't got personal at all. I want to keep that up, and I'm sorry I started reaching for more meta topics there which made it more personal.

yeah i'm not upset nor was i taking it personally. got a little frustrated but i was also drinking (lol surprise!). just suggested we take it to outside the game because i can't separate if the patronising shtick on meta was an in game ploy or a genuine conversation so best to park it.


anyway!

I agree with it too, I think Amniís insistence only to immediately about-face feels weird, why make the original statements to then immediately renege on them?

Iím looking back to see how this played out and are we taking about the case Amni made early yesterday on sci then flipped just recently to SNG? That doesnít seem immediate at all but maybe Iím missing something. I did have a few drinks so maybe Iím being dumb

Awww you guys were just lurking til someone called you out! Anyway! Now that youíre all here, we can actually get some information from yíall.

Hum, I know youíre going to reread, but why does the term town slapfight set you off? Does any one of those people in those conversations read specifically scum to you? And if so why did you wait until I asked for you in order to reread and post about it?

Sand, what about this specifically are you calling my scum play? Because youíve been in several games with me i trust you would know my meta. But since Iím town rn, I want to see where you misread me.

Amni, what is the primary reasoning behind your vote on me?

Taste, when you arrive, whatís your read on the Hambeet bif convo?

Wow, yeah this is scummy and exactly what he did last game.

Mr. Humalong posted:

ďTownie slapfightĒ is a phrase that is used by scum a lot. Itís an easy thing for a scum player to say to look like theyíre paying attention without sticking their neck out too much. For three people to come in and say it on the same page is suspicious. For you to say it about both of the big arguments of today is beyond suspicious. It means you have read all of the posts concerning these arguments and decided that absolutely none of them could have been made with duplicitous intent. That is...incredibly generous.

I think Amni looks like his usual over-eager self fixating on the first thing he can to the detriment of any other possible leads. Him using your stinky poo poo post (no offense please do not cry) to swap off Sci and onto you is mildly concerning, but honestly you just came in and made like six paragraphs of text to say ďI think theyíre all town lolĒ so itís understandable.

Scientastic seems to be playing as I would expect scum Sci to play. This could be meta bias.

Bif and beet are playing to type and I think both of them look worse afterward.

Yup, I agree with the bolded part. I think Bif is town based on how they played in food crimes, and their motivation feels town to me.

Sand honestly your biggest thing for me is no scumcalls. You have townreads but no pings or suspicions. Youíre calling people out, youíre doing things right, but never actually pushing a candidate of your own here. Thatís the scummy part.

sandnavyguy posted:

Thatís fair, though Iíd like to point out Iím trying to get more people involved so I can make a scumcall because, well, I havenít had anything really ping hard. The closest is Amni but Iím still stuck on the fact that them applying pressure and pressure votes was town Amni in the last two games we played. Iím not even that concerned they voted me, itís more Iím puzzled as to why they are choosing to hyper focus instead of scattershot which they usually seem to do. Just like in Cuomo time, I didnít make a decision until Tommu had become so performative as scum that I felt it a slam dunk. Generally I donít vote til near deadline or if I see a big red flag.

If I were to push a case it would be a simple lurker case on taste or even DGK, but that may just be due to time zones or uh, meta in tastes case. But neither of those can be really pushed until people respond, as you and Hum have.


I get that itís suspicious, but since neither of the interactions are pinging me as scum I didnít have anything really to say, so I figured they are all town. Iím stuck because the alternative is just vote someone I donít think is scum which is, ya know, ludicrous.

I disagree with your Scientastic read, they played similarly in baby mafia, and I think it rings town.

The obvious solution is to drum up more people for more info, and uh, thatís what Iím doing.

I feel your drumming up people is performative and a way for you to provide 'content' without really providing content so you can look town.
