Just feels like trying too hard. There's nothing wrong with not considering the Day 1 lynch a garbage lynch, but right now this feels a lot like "guys, guys! I'm going to talk about what a bad idea this lynch is so when Somber flips town I'll look clean!"

This reads super overwrought to me. She starts off saying that she'd be alright with a turbo if supporting one would be going with the flow, but then starts talking about a bunch of hypothetical scenarios as to what would happen if she were scum.

Amoeba102 posted:

Because as scum you might be trying too hard to do the townie thing. And really, if ever there was an awkward post, that was it right there.
Why did you jump on the bandwagon after being questioned?

I'm awkward, mafia-virginal, and susceptible to peer pressure. In all seriousness, though, my being questioned didn't seem to throw up any pauses, so I just did it. I was too quick to do it, especially considering now I'm all 'woah, hang back all, take a toke, let's talk about this, man'. I was more caught up on how quickly everything was moving and derailed the train despite my hesitation to do so. Having done that, though, I want to at least do as much as I can think of to provoke thought and generate content. I'm going to flip town either way.

Sorry Ernie, I didn't mean to be rude. I have never seen you play before, so whether your starting the turbo was indicative of a tell or playstyle was lost on me, but might not be on others, which was what I was trying to angle for.

If Ras can't ferret out the scum on this lynch afterwards then he's probably scum himself.

Oh I absolutely don't need a replacement, but I'm VT and hopefully you can all use this to achieve something more important. Like lynching either Procter or Ras.

You became confident in Ras being scum very quickly.

I agree tho, it does feel weird that Ras in particular stands out to me, but the best way I can describe it is that I would play that situation the exact same way as scum and Ras is very good at mafia so I'm inherently suspicious of him in a way that is sometimes tiring. Also I've been drinking a little.

You are here to kill the Eagles. Admittedly my experience w the Eagles is performing one of their songs once at a Christmas fete (which was neither Christmas-y or Australian), but I'm sure they've brought joy enough to people's lives to warrant not snuffing them out in their prime(?)

Upon googling it turns out I didn't do an Eagles song, but a Daddy Cool song called Eagle Rock. Which makes more sense. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oQfAZVsz6KM

Turns out he plays competitively and his chosen way to unwind is to watch Legend of the Galactic Heroes. I almost became his friend but then he told me that he believes that Keystone XL is the best thing that can happen to our world and that as a Financial Investor his life is so great that the most difficult decision he has to make is what Fantasy Football trades he needs to do.

Because there was pretty much no content to go on in such a way that I'd stand out. I can understand if you were just meta'ing but you've got the meta framed incorrectly. When you pulled the "ras is scum" on the perceived basis of me being wrong, you were scum. You were screaming it right up until your lynch. I think you were saying it even AFTER hammer in the game I am thinking of~

This post smells of a scum who didn't have anything to say so they made a sly joke that implies they are town.

Isn't this hypocritical when he's specifically mentioned wanting to talk more with you and you are both one of the guys starting the turbo and one of his detractors? I think you're making him look worse than he actually is by misrepresenting what he is actually doing.
