I don't think it's cool to bring up stuff like that. It would lead to a nasty back and forth between us, I think. Let's just enjoy this game and take what lessons we may from the last one!

I was asking in good faith, but alright.

And yeah, I took a ~3 year hiatus.

I'm not getting a sense of whether or not you agree that post was awkward, can you clarify? Also fwiw Narco prefers 'she' I believe.

This is a good way to engage the thread without interacting with any of the existing content.

I don't think that giving merk or Mills a kill is hugely helpful Trill. If they're town then they'll probably hit town anyway and I dunno if that would exactly be helpful to case-making.

And again merk point blank ignores what I'm saying phrasing it as a general mafia discussion.

I am saying merk, the person, the player, the champion, personally is scummy because given how difficult it is to cuddle him he wouldn't be at all fearful of talking yourself out of the repercussions of a misvig.

No, I feel like you were definitely doing the first thing. I don't understand what you mean. It feels like you're saying it's impossible for merk to make an honest case.

Idk who is scum. This is only my second ever game of mafia so I don't know everyone's meta game or typical scum tells. I'll look through the thread again and see if anything stands out.

Or insecure new town? How are you parsing the difference? Seems like a stretch to want someone dead over a fairly innocuous post. I would at least want to see the eventual reads promised.

Narco has been playing, she has opinions down. I don't know why she needs to go think about who might be scum. It's way too safe. Insecure town are usually much less active in my experience.

I'm not sure why you're casing me so hard. I am absolutely town this game. If you want to see how I act as scum, check out my last game. Ideally, you won't be able to tell the difference since that's kind of the point. Is there anything I can do or say to prove that I am town and get you off my back?

My vote isn't on you. I'm pointing out scummy behavior when I see scummy behavior, because that's how you play Mafia. If you make a strong argument for someone else I'll consider them too.

Well IDK, Somber has bounced around with his read on AN a couple of times. One minute she's scummy, the next well maybe this is a townie post hmm, then later coming in and saying she's someone to lynch. I think that's what is scummy about it more than the simple observations that AN has done stuff that could be scummy, because I agree with Somber about that much.

I feel like you're laying down groundwork for a later dunk on me.

Can I get your feedback on what Narcotics has posted that you agree is/could be scummy?

Like I've told Mills several times over PM, that's something I'm super happy to discuss once the game has ended but I don't feel comfortable talking about it right now.

the first post you quoted was one out of three jokes diqnol mills and i made to blame merk for our mis-turbo, it's not even a little serious

the second post i've already explained when merk asked why i thought i was an sk, and the conversation with diqnol happened after it

you just hit the '?' beneath my name to manufacture a case. don't you want to go after narc anymore, or do you think it's easier to get a mis-cuddle going on me now that claims are out?

and again, you knew mills was town yesterday.

no, i was going back from the start of yesterday and your posts bothered me. this is funny though! i say 'hey, what happened to your case on me?' and you vote me and ask where my case on narco went. that's super disingenuous, there's no way you believe that line of reasoning. i find your sk explanation sincerely unsatisfactory too.

Isn't that just scumhunting though? Why would he bother to point a finger at himself? Moreover, pointing is rude. Is it specifically Pinterest Mother's aggression that leads you to believe he's scum?

This is a bad vote. If you're going to vote Pin Mom you should just be honest and say you're doing it because it's what merk wants. Saying otherwise at this late juncture looks fake.

...I don't care what merk wants. This is something that sticks out to me. Scumhunting is one thing, but finding something scummy in every single other player kinda defeats the whole purpose. Basically PMom is saying that everyone BUT HIM is doing scummy things.

Checking the last couple pages of his post history, I see Pinterest pushing Grandi and Merk. That's hardly everyone. Can you back this up?
