Merk was acting pissy like when he gets caught as scum but he's cooled down. Would vote but that's more out of value of potentially removing a maybe scum merk

I dont understand your point regarding Merk. Are you saying meta cases are good?

Not "good" but not "bad" either

Dugong is weird because he jumps on an innocuous and logical imo position on merk and tried to make it a thing


Pm its not a nonopinion. There's really very few good reasons to lynch somebody and people poo poo on legitimate avenue of meta because reasons

well drat, it seems i have to paraphrase. so here i will do my best.

i have the ability at night to invite one person into a masonry and talk with them just for the night, i am anonymous in the masonry, the player wont know who i am.

valary once in the masonry does very little or seems to care very little who i am and what my motivations are, she instead sprays me with a wall of text style lumpenlisting of all the playres in the game and 'thoughts' on them, as if she is more worried about my impression of her than anything else.

she also goes out of her way to mention that 'the scum will never kill me i'm more useful alive' which was another red flag to me.

finally, the thing that sealed it for me, i asked her 'who do you think i am' she says 'i have no idea, but i hope its someone i have a good relationship with like rarity or asina'

HMMM

really

really

i wasnt trying to change the way i type or talk at all in this document, and im not self absorbed enough to think anyone would recognize my writing style instantly, BUT im pretty sure i could recognize someone im GOOD FRIENDS WITH from the way they type. this struck me as very fake, and no one other than scum would have any motivation to be fake.

therefor she bad. die valary, die.

the response "you should vote them because they're scum" depends on either amoeba

1) thinking scum had two kills
2) knowing scum had one kill and X party had another

There were 3 kills N1.

I don't understand this conversation.

i was scanning kill methods and didn't see matches


but then again that would mean scum kills don't match either so eh

If you were a vig you would have explained after that post, I think you're scum

Asiina posted:

If I consistently see 2 kills each night (plus mine N1) my mind will go to scum + SK rather than scum + 3 nightvigs, and that's not including the two dayvigs.

That's not a strange or unusual train of thought.

two nights is pretty early to start driving that discussion when we have a confirmed scum's history to continue poring over, especially when we're averaging at least 1.5 vigs per cycle thus far

note it's of course in scum's interest to find the sk

Well thanks for clearing that up. So you think I'm scum that sticks my head out when someone soft claims tracking or watching. I dunno man, I think that's kind of insulting.

It's also in the town's interest to find the SK, but I'd bet on it being Byers - so I think they already found him.

scum suffer more by the continued existence of a nonscum killing role than town

how are you hunting for an sk

It was meant more at however this sk nonsense became our focus despite a flipped scum to examine all day long

Amoeba102 posted:

We can argue semantics: It hurts town more because it brings LYLO faster. Nonscum killing roles are only better for town than scum if town can win with them.

I'm assuming nobody can win with live SK but I haven't checked op to see if scum win condition is listed

i'm going to try putting his thought process into a single post

-softclaim tracker or watcher on the byers kill
-amoeba says "that person is scum"
-taste turns that into "amoeba knows byers was killed by scum, either because he's scum, or a vig" (though not sk?), but votes amoeba
-taste then poo-poos sk spec in favour of a 4th and 5th vig theory

note this dumb derail had already started


i wanted to take it in a particular direction and amoeba's phrasing is p sus

I'm on mobile but if I wasn't Id have a long rant about me blowing a gasket over both pm and rarity saying I'm doing things that my posts *explicitly* counter

Pm I am saying its a thread focus and people buying into it are acting anti town, someone already suspicious for other reasons and acting anti town is worth a vote

Rar I am literally calling multiple times for people to examine Merks post history

Your stated intentions do not line up with "fake soft claim as a gotcha". It works as a derail from the Derp/FV secret mason discussion but it doesn't go to discussing merk's port history.

can you rephrase this post? I don't get what you mean

Amoeba102 posted:

If you wanted us to talk about merk's port history, then your soft fake claim did not serve this purpose as it started it's on derail. A derail that would have happened regardless because you soft fake claimed.

you make it sound as if one desired intent was subsidiary to the other

I'm saying that if you wanted to shift thread focus onto merk's post history, then saying "Hey, guess what I know *wink wink*" instead focuses the thread on you and any resulting discussion there of.

well yes I have Multiple Goals and Concurrent Aims

I wasn't going to very well go fishing after steering the conversation to where I wanted it to be and derail it again
