2. You're trying to get me to make a 3-day commitment to a townread super early. That would put me in a position that makes it difficult for me to case that player if my read changes because you're set up to throw shade on me.

1. that doesn't make sense
2. that's not what the content game was and it's weird to pretend it was. It's not "respond to this and now you will be bound to what you post", it's "imagine if you had to bind yourself this way, how would it work"

You know I never understood why looking to classify someone as town through a read or tell is a bad thing. I mean, yeah, if someone only gives town tells then that's an issue, but I always feel I like I can usually identify a couple of townies early and that makes the rest of the game easier because it's a process of elimination. And sure, sometimes your wrong, but that's just what happens in these games.

But in the end, I think it's easier to pick out a couple of people who you think are town with a good degree of confidence on D1.

anyway my answer to the game is

TNL. I've pretty much developed the heuristic over the games I've played with him that when his reasoning and focus are in sync with mine, he's town, and when they're not, he's scum. I feel like my read on him will be stronger in three days than my read on anyone else could be.

Kasu thought me asking them to find one person in this game that they were willing to say "I think this person is town" was a bad thing to do. I can understand taking a bit of umbrage with the 3 days thing, but I wasn't asking them to Toxx on that. Had Kasu replied "I think 3 days is way too long but i wouldn't vote X for Y reasons", then ok. Instead, they dodged the question entirely

I consider it similar to the Synx gambit and that's a pretty open and shut failure on Kasu's part.

I didn't dodge the question at all, I very clearly said that I don't have townreads yet.

I mean, it's no weirder than your throwing shade on Ernie I guess. Both of you were trying to infer something out of nothing.

not shade

For future reference:

Shade is when you insult someone solely by inference. Shade can never directly refer to or quote the person who is being shaded.

A good heuristic for "is this shade" is "can I plausibly deny that my statement was directed at the person I in fact insulted?" If not, not shade!

Yeah, but he wasn't technically asking you for a town read. He was simply asking you to name one person who you wouldn't vote for 3 game days.

So you could have given an answer like PMom and named someone that you have a hard time getting an immediate read on, but it gets stronger as the game proceeds.

For example:

https://twitter.com/britneyspears/s...666740295532544

Shade. Iggy Azalea had, earlier in the week, called Britney out publicly, but, then, had also had her tour cancelled because of lack of ticket sales. This tweet doesn't refer to Iggy, and Britney can plausibly deny she was picking a fight with Iggy, even though she totally was.

TMMadman posted:

Right now, I'd shoot Ernie because I can't figure out his vote on me. Normally, I would just ignore it since it was the first vote of the entire game and that's usually a joke vote, but something about it just feels weird to me.

Not shade. TMM cannot plausibly claim he doesn't want to shoot Ernie.

It is not.

If you got a boon that said "you can have a N1 doc, but you have to give up your ability to vote for one person in the game", you'd obviously take it, right?

Which person would you choose? Why?

Tbh, a lot of these question this early on require people to rely on metagaming since there's nothing you can sincerely base it on and that kind of leaves me in the cold. As cold as the town tell fishing hole

I mean, sure, you can go the pure meta route (I did!), but people have been posting and you can discern something from that and base your answer on that.

Like, just as a pair-wise comparison, TMM has been posting content and Dr. Hurt hasn't. You'd probably rather put TMM in the not-voting bucket than Hurt based on that alone.

Yeah, but it's perfectly fine to use a bit of metagaming during the content game because it's really just all about getting people to talk and start voicing opinions about anything in order to get the game moving. Generally speaking, answers given during a content game aren't really held against you unless there is something really obviously wrong.

Fair, I'm just on the border about it and I'd really like Ernie to come back an answer my earlier question about it and just post more.

Something about it when I first saw it struck me as overly aggressive, but I can't decide if I'm also just being overly sensitive.

Well, my unconfirmed mason buddy hasn't gotten back to me, so I'm suspicious of that goon. My initial thought is that scum will be more confident and thus quicker in their vote, so I voted for one of the people who first put up two votes for a candidate.

I'll be honest, my eyes glazed over when I saw someone posting Britney Spears Twitter posts in what appeared to be an argument about the definition of throwing shade, which I hope you'll forgive me for not thinking is an actual serious discussion. And only one vote since said Twitter post so if two votes are completely real, I can't tell which two.
