This doesn't taste like anything you've licked before


Absurd Revolver posted:

So far my reads are all town. People not participating in either events or discussion are going to be the first on my list, too many good games have been destroyed by rampant lurking lately.

Jimson is definitely town though, with an opening move like that.

Kash is pinging me just the smallest bit I guess?

I'm thinking this way, too. SSV is in Australia, right? So far he's only made two posts, and none after the game's start.

Also conspicuously silent are Meinberg and AnonymousNarcotics.

All three have fewer posts than Jimson, but Jimson, as we all can agree, is playing.

I agree with the premise, In this game about a bunch of racist Virginians, I think it's very appropriate to pull an Eccogambit. That said, give them a bit of time actually lurk first, we've yet to reach 24 hours even.

It was quiet before I went to bed last night, and I didn't have anything to contribute. And it's been a busy morning thus far. It takes a little bit to warm up the old mafia engines. Now that I have consumed calories and caffeine, let me see what sort of scum I can find.

Kashuno posted:

Nah like day events are cool but there becomes an issue when there is no actual Mafia happening and people are too focused on the gimmick

This post really pinged me, because discussion around the events can be a great way of finding scum, though there's no hard and fast metrics involved. It's about tone and engagement and honesty, not with the event itself, but with the discussion around it. This post here reads as an attempt to shut down the main source of conversation at the moment, leaving us with less meaty material to work with.

I don't care for it.

I just don't know how much we can get out of discussing the event today. We have no idea what it will contribute to scum or town, and there's no real decision to be made beside do it or don't, so what exactly do you want to discuss about it?

MMM Whatchya Say posted:

My opinion of Jimson is that he's town but also that's a garbage angle he's working

MMM Whatchya Say posted:

I just wanted to bring this back because the narrative here is strong. I particularly like the twist of "We have nothing to work with on this day, day one"

MMM Whatchya Say posted:

Yeah I totally get what you're saying but the same thing can be applied to Jimson's first attack being on somebody who is putting effort in because they were putting effort in. Those are both bad lines of attack.

For the record I don't think jimson is scum, just that this is silly.

this is all really defensive and hedgy on jimson and feels like it is trying to throw shade while also calling him town so MMM can just back up onto it.

The basic principle of the Jimson Gambitu™ is that people get squirrelly if you pretend to know they are already scum and then pressure them on that hidden "knowledge" you have. In execution it's a way for me to make it obvious I am poo poo posting/harassing someone.

Mmm whatchasay is scum. They are acting like scum, and playing like scum because they are scum.


We have a possible argument on the field that being HEY GUYS LETS PAY SPECIAL ATTENTION TO THE PEOPLE THAT ARE TAKING PART IN THE LITTLE META-GAME BECAUSE SCUM PLAYERS ARE REALLY GOING TO BE INCENSED TO DO GOOD AT IT. To which he replied that is a dumb argument Jimson is a big ol dumby BUT I SERIOUSLY BELIEVE HE IS TOWN. The only people who would try and dismantle an attempt at scum hunting AND STILL ASSUME that the person who made the argument is town is someone that has something to gain by engendering themselves to town and that means they are...


for anyone not sure it means they are scum.

He's my thing, doing well isn't something that matters with this event, just doing it does. So how would we gauge how hard someone is trying at it relating to their scumminess?

MMM, what's getting me is the questions, especially the repetition. It strikes me as the kind of needling questions that scum use to brand people on day one while maintaining an excuse of "joke phase", then jumping on the reaction.

Let me ask you something, why does your concern for Jimson and his town status seem insincere? Why did you jump to his defense so early and often?
