I won't be my old self, I don't think. I used to be pretty good at mafia (reviews vary) but killing me would have let me continue on my way and prevent me from polarizing the thread whereas killing gulag makes everyone sad

He's right. Look at the list of players - scum pbs could have killed half a dozen people and said something like "playing with diqnol makes me sad" or whatever and nobody would have blinked an eye

I don't like meta arguments because how someone plays is based on so much more than alignment. Two days ago I was playing like a giant stinkyhole because I was overly emotional and stressed out, today I'm playing completely differently because the things that stressed me out are (somewhat) resolved.

Simple meta based on small sample size will fail you

A more comprehensive meta based on knowledge of personality, tendencies, dozens of games worth of history is different

My reason for thinking that is that people are not robots, they act wildly differently at different times. Meta has never made itself clear as a good tactic, it seems to get the same results as a shot in the dark. All meta is good for is riling people up so they might slip and do something dumb I guess.

I was more going on the reactive aspect of things because in the past I've caught you (town) voting for me (town) because I was a gigantic dick rather than because you felt I was scum. Well, I wasn't sure if you were conflating dick with scum or not but it didn't feel like it.

Meta has its place. It isn't something to exist in place of an argument but it can help paint a picture with better shading.

AR's trying to get them motivated, but the down side to having (most of) the Austrailian population is that they're not around much during (our) daytime and at night...they seem less than focused.

No but it would at least show that meta is bad in a more scientific way. My point is that I'm starting to agree with TT (despite his horribly confrontational posting "style") that even if PBS turns out to be town, it isn't actually the worst result.

Inf is probably town unfortunately because as much as I want to think AR is just pulling a gambit, there's no way he could have communicated with birdstrike about it. Giving the go ahead to kill inf would have almost certainly resulted in Inf's death if not for diqnol's "heroism."
