I agree, it makes reading the posts a lot easier if people are just honest. For the record, I am Town-aligned and would like to vote for a Scum-aligned person.

Hey speaking of Auspol babies, has Snapchat caved and reversed their lovely new policy yet, cause I miss sending Minifauxnen snaps out to peeps

I am not aware of any new Snapchat policies; clearly this is a suspicious post (it can't be that I haven't been paying attention). Clearly a scum-move to confuse us.

They were claiming they get to keep full rights to use whatever images you snap however they want forever and ever.

Kommando should take a snap holding up a sign with his vote for me on it

Suddenly I'm glad I never remember that I have Snapchat on my phone and never use it.

Kommando should organise another goonmeet as I am hungry. Failure to do so is indicative of scumness.

At this stage (since I may be in a meeting in the last hour and don't want to miss having my vote on the record) I'm agreeing with EXACT's post about Podima. Podima has been throwing out aspersions without any real weight or reasoning behind them, and then voting with only a flimsy rationale against the person who it would seem that he was always really wanting to vote the whole time, without ever giving any real reason why. To me it seems like a smokescreen to try to sound reasonable but still target someone directly and with some purpose, and I'm happy for this vote to stand (unless someone else puts their hand up before deadline as an obvious scum, of course).

Just for reference, since I've been sick in bed all day not contributing, I'm a teal gameboy colour that loves his town. Very exciting if you like ancient handhelds with barely any games worth buying.

I'd suggest we just vote on who's actually acting scummy, rather than thinking that we already have an exhaustive list of the handhelds like it's the most important thing in the game. I mean, it'll be sad for me if it's I get lynched because of that kind of reason, but I guess once I'm dead you'll get to see that my role is a GBC and that the reason for lynching wasn't based on sound footing.

That being said, I'm now interested in looking more at Quid since that was a pretty big swing to come out with - it may have just been a semantic misreading of the role but I'm looking more carefully for other signs now...

Reading back through Quid's posts and for the time being I believe the story. I think that the whole thing seems real and that Quid was just misreading the details of the role and jumped to conclusions.

In the interests of getting a lynch today I'll ##vote Quidnose, but only because not voting for anybody would be worse. I'm still wavering on the side of this being an honest miscalculation but I don't think anyone'll be a better target in the remaining time.

Looking at the Quid push from yesterday, I think iajanus was the scummiest person on it.


After the swing to Quid starts, he suggests that we vote for someone who's "actually scummy," but doesn't give any indication as to who he thinks that would be and doesn't pose any alternatives for us to vote for, since he doesn't have a vote down. Then, when we get close to deadline, he plonks down this vote on Quid:


Actually, I said that we were focusing on the flavour and not in any way trying to actually ferret out people acting like scum. I then said that I was suspicious of Quid, but not sure - I never implied that I actually had a different suspicion. I then, later, posted that I'd vote for Quid in the interest of securing a lynch because nobody had presented as a better option but I still wasn't 100% convinced. Was that a misreading of what I wrote or trying to put words in my mouth?

You were casting doubt on the case currently on the table, but weren't making any contributions to scumhunting yourself. You were perfectly content to just go with the flow and not make any pushes, which to me says that you're scum just trying to go with the flow and not draw heat.

The case that was on the table was a bunch of posting about minutiae that wasn't making any headway. I wanted us to try to start moving in a more productive direction. Ironically we are now, just against me, which is nice on the level that we're now looking at more useful data but less nice insofar as I'm vanilla town so scum are likely enjoying me being the focus of attention.

I agree with Taste's comment about the coincidental timing of merk popping into the thread seemingly apropos of nothing more than being mentioned for not doing so; it could be that merk has been busy just reading and only posting when able to but it's a little weird, much like the couple of people jumping in to support him and declare him town immediately afterwards with no real signs either way.

Why were you opposed to the lynch when your flavour is counter to his role? The entire reason he said you were scum was that you weren't on his list of handhelds, which meant that either a) he was a liar b) your flavour is fake c) he didn't have all the handhelds.

I was opposed to the lynch because I of option c). I thought that he had possibly just misread his role insofar as he thought it was an exhaustive list so attacked me on that basis. I thought if that was the case then voting him out might not be the best move, especially relatively early on in the process when we were talking about this.

Kommando posted:

I've noticed this too, merk and EXACT popping up when called on.

but Quidnose admitted to lying and lying about a very scummy role. And you were saying hold on because what? that there was no more obvious target? that was not minutiae, it was a 3p lying about their role. then confessing to lying and then claiming to have an even more obtuse and scummy role.


:colbert: fine, I never said I made a good or well-thought out argument against him, I was just expressing my opinion and it came off a bit hamfistedly. In hindsight it wasn't particularly well framed or expressed but that's done now, for better or more likely worse. Moving on, since I'm looking down the barrel at the moment of being lynched and I (personally) know that I'm town, I'm looking at where the main impetus against me is coming from. Sure, I've come off pretty scummy, but a lot of thrust is coming from Exact who just popped up as you observed and shone a light on me out of relatively nowhere. Whilst the argument being made isn't objectively a bad one, from my end it looks like they're doing a bang-up job trying to get everyone looking at me just when it was being noticed that we had some absences.

Kommando posted:

merk, for uncaring absenteeism.
bif for having a convoluted role that improves with a townie death, like Quidnose had.
tbk for not playing.
EXACT Science for lamp genie appearances

Out of those options I'm going with exact as the veracity of attack and sudden appearances seems to be the most suspicious. Merk seems suss as well but I think it's more likely right now that it's just coincidental than not and there isn't that much else to go on. Bif has been a strident voice against me but I think it's coming from a good place.

Since it's looking likely I'll be voted out let's all pay attention to where the main thrust against me's been coming from for when you find out my alignment.

Bif has been pretty strident but also consistent and well reasoned. Whilst it could be scum with a focused plan it seems genuine to me.
Exact has been popping up as if on cue and has also been pretty gungho about pushing everyone onto me. Also gotten defended by Bif without any real grounds.
Kommando has been trying to use the roles to actually work out people's motivation, although with a strong focus on Bif for some reason I can't put my finger on.
Kat jumped in with some actual reasons against particular people but then voted for me out of "convenience" even after pointing out some decent leads.
Otherwise it's time for more people to come out of the woodwork at the last moment for the inevitable lynching party so hopefully you learn something useful from this all.
