The Pit Awaits


MC Eating Disorder posted:

I'm not really that interested in defending Rarity, but I'm just suspicious of how readily people threw down votes without actually providing arguments and I don't buy the reaction as being bad enough to double down over.

Still not interested in voting for Rarity today either since I think Five or one of the numerous people yet to really contribute in any meaningful way are a better candidate

Regardless of whether you want to defend Rarity, that's definitely what you're doing if you are telling us to move votes onto Five and 'one of the numerous people yet to contribute' (lurkers).

I'm not interested in killing five day one, he's been away for ages. The last game I remember him in was Slenderman mafia.

Oh man I don't even remember that at all.

To be honest I wouldn't kick and scream being lynched Day 1, as long as I can get some people posting their opinions and stuff before they do it. One of the things I Have Learned over the intervening years (?) is that I shouldn't take things personally, especially from insane people on the internet.

I'm moving so I'm not sure how much I'll be able to post the next few RL days, I'm putting this down for now.

Hey if you get a chance here could you say exaktly why you're throwing down this vote? Actually you deserve this more than Opopopoponax right now. ##vote EXAKT Science

I'm not interested in "moving votes" I'm actually fine keeping my vote on you since I think who you vote for is a better indication of scumminess on D1 than actual posting but going into N1 and D2 I think its in the best interest of town to float a couple of boats to give us something to work with later.

If I end the day voting rarity it is only because you are newer.

If we have more than one good suspect (two people you suspect of working together don't count for this since if one doesn't flip the other isn't a good suspect anymore) we have more options if the D1 lynch turns out to be wrong. If you are right about Rarity I'm a suspect on D2 but if you honestly want to waste D2 leading a charge against me based on that I can't blame you and I'm not gonna struggle but that still doesn't mean we should spend the rest of the day absolutely 100% assuming Rarity will flip scum at the expense of generating more content.

Honestly, I'm throwing it down for pretty much the same reasons as Opop. I think the same posts he did are scummy. I know that's not really a satisfactory answer, so I'm sorry about that.

Hey there.

Rarity seems to me to not be scummy enough to vote right now. It seems that people are jumping on a pretty weak case and she is wondering where it came from. How she reacts to it when she next posts will tell more.

As for MC Eating Disorder, I'm reading town. I can relate to nervousness of posting in SA Mafia games. I don't play in them often because, quite honestly, it usually stresses me out.

I would like to see what Hal or Orvin has to say about today as they've been relatively quiet.

Poque posted:

Eh. I see what you mean about stymieing discussion, though it was just meant to be commentary on how d1s generally go. It wasn't intentional, I just have a hard time parsing which posts are meaningful for identifying scum and which posts are just mindless fluff.
This feels like someone who's trying to fake being a townie under suspicion. Poque is also getting inordinately defensive for the amount of pressure he's under, in my opinion.

Poque posted:

hahaha my old phone would autocapitalize TIM TEBOW and KIRK HINRICH and DIQNOL.
This is supposed to be a joke. I feel like it falls flat and feels inorganic, in a scummy way.

the more I think about it honestly my ability to not get any scum vibes off Comma might entirely be the Adam Scott avatar and their willingness to buy me as jittery town but at this point I'll take it until I get any other good reads on them

Just for the record I don't like the idea of putting down a vote for someone with 2 votes on them already then potentially walking away for a while without a lot of justification. I don't really buy Rarity as scum over that post, and if Op is just pushing a bit that's one thing but there's no way its convincing enough to vote and walk away on.

Somber I'd like your own thoughts on why Rarity is scummy, you waited on a reaction to push an actual vote but you kind of just echoed Ops idea that it was a scum post without adding much yourself

Rarity, whats your read on Op? He lead on a serious vote for you and all your reads are town but you didn't include him in your list of reads. For that matter whats your read on me?

This feels overwrought and self conscious.

I'm voting Rarity for the same reasons as Opop. He and I both think the same set of Rarity's posts are scummy, and for generally the same reasons, as far as I can tell.

I think I'm in the same boat as MMM. Exact, in that quote where you say "he", it seems like you are talking about Rarity -- but Rarity is a she.

So, were you referring to Rarity and got the genders mixed up? Or were you referring to someone else?
