This is a bad post. A very lovely attempt to discredit a vote on you, with no alignment calls, which you clearly have only posted as a setup for an OMGUS later on.

You're not trying to scum hunt, you're just trying to push heat off you in the easiest way you could find.

I'm sorry if you're irritable but you normally are very cool-headed so something is wrong.

because you're trying to dictate how people think about a certain case by providing logic that can't be determined from the thread, and only exists in your head.

I understand that votes can be used to generate action, but not when you're spreading it all around town.

I don't want to sound like some Christian lady talking to her daughter about her virginity, but if you toss your vote everywhere with every whim your vote loses meaning.

The first few people might feel inclined to respond to your antics, but after awhile nobody is going to care because you have turned yourself into the local crackpot, who nobody takes seriously.

You keep failing to recognize that your actions are, and continue to be a liability to town. Either you are scum, and you are just really not good at it, or you are a member of town who is actively working against the interests of town.

The whole conversation in this game is now about you. If your are scum you deserve it, if you are town you are giving scum a free ride for all of day one.

You need to rethink your strategy.

this isn't at all true here - it is good d1 strategy to throw votes and see who reacts weirdly to the little bit of pressure a vote provides. not that i'm using this tactic this game but it has worked well for me in the past

Second, this recent moment where you are trying to take credit for getting the game going. It is another odd thing to do. This is the first game I've played in which somebody cared who got the ball rolling. The only reason to mention it, is that you're trying to build goodwill and favor towards yourself. If you got the game started by making yourself vote-able, what debt do you think we owe you?


gonna snip this the same way pinmom did. not that taking credit per se is a strong move, but it's the fact that it is in town's interest to start realchat asap. it's not a sure tell by any means, but it is more in town's interest to end jokephase early. more real content = better than; scum gain advantage when there's no real discussion happening

What can I say, I'm rusty, and it's really hard to build a good case on D1. Given that diq has been throwing poo poo at the wall to see what sticks, the question is how much real info we can pump from his posting if he gets lynched. I'm on the fence.

there's a difference between trying to build a case and what you were doing, though

gg reads to me exactly the same as he did in the immediately previous game which is to say he's catastrophically angry at people -> ending up being town anyway. admittedly still a meta read but nothing has pinged me as overtly scummy in his play as of yet

Preface:
I re-read the thread quoting posts that pinged me as I went along, then I determined who I would vote based upon plurality of pinging posts or a lack of quality posts. I have a few cases inbound. My first and largest is against Captain Foo.

Captain Foo

Would you explain to me why voting someone for their early case is bad? or Hilarious as it clearly sent you into hysterics.

Then why do you disagree with me on my feelings about G PP?

This logic contradicts your post about people who jump on early d1 vt claims as scummier.

Isn't trying to persuade how people think about cases an integral part to the game?

Your statements up to this point in the game had only been negative and not at all indicative of intent to actually hunt scum. Your shitpost post is a miserable poo poo post?

I'm beginning to notice a trend where you're negative towards everyone's casing or votes while actually providing a limited amount yourself. While this vote may not have been the best, you weren't even the first person to call it out and it feels like you're doing so in part to discredit any possible work that could identify scum, and you seem pretty confident about G PP's alignment even though his actions contradict one of your first statements in the game.

okay let's address points here:
first and foremost i will admit it's easier to poke holes in other people's posts than build strong cases yourself and i might be a little cavalier about doing it HOWEVUH

this is the definition of cherrypicking. you emphasize that i'm providing a limited amount of content, casing, or votes while quoting all things you find scummy. the problem here is that you're letting my posting style dictate your feel towards me; i post a lot of one-thought posts. if you don't like my style that's gonna make me look really bad in your eyes without actually being scummy very much at all. basically your premise lead you to a predetermined conclusion
