I dunno, this is written in a way that infers an external perspective - that you are a separate entity to the town and pleading to them. It could be a subconscious slip. Also happy to admit I may be reading too much into it, it just twigged something for me.

Anidav always does dumb appeals to town though, because he is bad at the game (I didn't play in the last two games where apparently he was good. I don't believe it for a second.)

Anidav posted:

The fact that you put analysis into this lovely day one post implies that you are putting in a small effort to out-town the town.

Auspol town always gets into a shitflinging frenzy on day one where a large majority of the posts are jabs, jokes or meaningless. You however have come to stand out and try being a helpful town on day 1.

You are either reading too much into this or are scummy for the fact that you're trying to fish hard out of day one posts.

Framing the argument is a key part of a mafia team, do it too early and too often and you will get lynched.

This sort of panicked defensive stuff is super suss dude.

Coq seems suss, Anidav is still awful at this game, and I'm happy to vote for either if we need the numbers. I'm really concerned that we won't get a lynch today and will just sit on our asses while scum picks us off.

At the time the bus on me was too many to count, my suss list was still in the oven at that point. I'm on the same page as you though, low post counts, emoticon voting are both things that do not add to town constructively. I do repeat you are on the right track. I am the inventor of team silent and hate them forever.

Anyway, my suss list in no particular order.

- Milky Moor Low content, light attempts of role play (waiting for data? watching in the shadows?)

- Katdelacour I know nothing about this poster and want to know more.

- Gwynplaine A question nagging me is if Gaspy would be a joker enough to make his own brother(?) scum

- TOML Low content, returns at night to sway the train. Probably busy as gently caress but you can never be too sure

- Splode I would love to see him post more and not so much about me. If my style angers him; I am sorry.

- whatsfordinner Usually has something more to say by now. I'm not holding him against the clock but he was a tad more active in his last game.

Every single one of these arguments is garbage, but you're reliably terrible. Coq actually seems suss, instead of shockingly incompetent.

You've managed to name a few legitimately suss players, but for entirely daft reasons. Milky has safely joined bandwagons and has done gently caress all low content posting.

YOU LITERALLY HAD AN ARGUMENT WITH KAT THIS MORNING. Did you have a head injury this afternoon?

Don't try and metagame it's embarrassing to watch.

whats for dinner posted:

Pressure's on

I voted for anidav because I was really suss on how he seemed to be begging for people to expend night actions on him using vague, flavour-y roleclaims.

He could've had a cop investigate him, a doctor protect him, a vigilante try and kill him and who knows what else with how many roles there could be. And a single scum watcher would've been able to see all of those people and had a great list of night kill after night kill for the scumdoc, from one night action.

He might have flipped town, but even then, who knows which power roles were planning on investigating him that could've been seen by a scum watcher. Yes, it sucks that we've lost a watcher (and also one of the coolest characters - rip starscream), but a number of other potential power roles have been protected by him not being an option for night actions.

As for the lateness, I was coaching and noticed at the very last second. In the future, I'm going to make a more considered vote earlier in the day and if I don't get swayed I'll just have to stick with it. Sorry

I have no special role insight that I needed overnight to write this post for, it's just that I had to phonepost at the death knell.

This is a good rationale, but it you could have just spent some time last night coming up with an excuse after you swooped in to save Coq and the hammer fell.

Hi

I have an ok ability but no idea how to use it effectively. I'm like a toddler with a handgun in that I'll probably just wind up shooting myself.

I think Coq is probably guilty of something on the grounds he talks way too much when it isn't necessary for him to do so. Anidav had a reason to get defensive (he's captain insecure and everyone dogpiled him). Coq just got all chatty.

I hammered Anidav at the last minute yesterday because someone said it needed 11 votes and he was sitting there with 10 with 1 minute to go so I thought it would be kinda funny.

Everyone else is either playing a good double bluff and I can't see the clues, or they aren't posting at all so there's no real info for me to go on.

This is a very very bad excuse. Where's the joke? It really looks like you just went in to defend Coq now, though I have to give you credit for not just stealing whats for dinner's excuse.

This seems more like you're pleading the fifth tbh.

If you're town, look who is arguing for your death! There is a good chance they're scum, and if you die we can look at who you butted heads with. If you just shut up and take it it'll be easier for the scum players to just go "aww gee my bad, but all he really did look suss"

Going after a very obviously new player making new player mistakes is a safe way of covering your rear end after being called out for being too quiet, dj-bbq

I went through hiddenmovements posts and he just comes across as incredibly new and inexperienced. I doubt it's an act, as he edited his post and that's way too risky a stunt to pull. However, he might still be scum. His actions are justifiable as "no idea what he is doing", but they are on average suspicious too.

Yes, this is a pretty sound argument.

I'm a bit less suss about Bif right now. It was interesting to see Beet talk me down from that rather than piling on.

I've had a quick look through the post histories of those who've been posting a bit less.

dj-bbq's post levels are so low that I can't believe any scum would do that.

what's for dinner is still on board for lynching coq and has only really made one substantive post, and that was in self-defence.

##vote whats for dinner

Now heading to dinner and drinks, may or may not be back before hammer.

dj-bbq's post count is always ridiculously low, he usually gets lynched for it. That said, today he immediately piped up when he was called out on it, so that's a bit suss.

Your argument for whats for dinner is pretty good. It also doesn't help that his post in self defence was delayed until today after he'd had plenty of time to think of something, so until we get a better candidate

Especially considering the other suspicious hammer voter was hiddenmovement who has pretty clearly demonstrated he's just a big dumb noob, whats for dinner is much more suspicious.

well that's annoying, I got home after thinking on the drive over that I'm tired of this info paralysis with trying to read into everything way too elaborately, and that I might try and stew on the FS thing a while longer. Just trusting that I've made enough of a stink for now that if there's anything worthwhile in there, it'll probably come to light more clearly a bit later. Seeing that some others have voted along with it without any more significant comment is just making me nervous.

So if you guys are just going to follow me around for now instead of posting more scumhuting, I'm just go on that bad feeling I had instead. I don't like how b_t said what's for dinner is the "best bet" out of a big field of nothing.

##vote black_tangled

TOML is giving me a similar feeling for what it's worth.

There is a weak case for whats for dinner, it's not entirely random. Suddenly charging in with the hammer is always suspicious, and while his justification was ok, it's been pretty much his only post all day.

I guess now that I think about it, it's only suspicious if Coq is scum, and if Coq is scum then it makes more sense to vote for him
