This is a misrepresentation. He said:


Which on first glance I read as ďthatís weird to offer to claimĒ and then said ďoh wait no thatís not actually what he meant.Ē

Did you misread, YPM, or were you hoping to sneak in some suspicion amidst your jokephase yelling

I misread it, but I also definitely was trying to raise suspicion on him and really didnít try to read it carefully

I dunno if Gene is scum but first to vote + obviously targetting the odd duck out reads to me as something that could fly under the radar easily while theoretically scoring an easy D1 mislynch.

It reads to me as an awkward entrance by scum who is voting for someone that they can safely switch off of.

I didnít say I wanted to make him look suspicious. I said that I want to put suspicion on him because, get this, itís loving day 1 and I donít know who is scum so I gotta yell a bit about nothing until something happens. You know this. What do you think about Gene?

Hey YPM while the shoe is on the other foot: why did you think Gene was suspicious if you hadnt read him voting me at the start of the day?

His casual mention of being vanilla town. It read forced.

Asiina posted:

Yeah, that is a very odd phrase.

I don't know why scum would be so blatant about it though. I'm assuming he meant something other than "I was trying to make a fake case but wasn't paying attention."

So YPM what did you mean by that?

I wasnít trying to make a case (meaning, trying to convince others to lynch him). I was trying to put pressure on him to see how he responded.

Hi flerp. If you refuse to latch yourself to Monaís airtight case involving Geneís inexcusable confusion over fake sports leagues, is there anyone you would like us to brutally murder

Quid. Everyone makes everything out of nothing on day 1. You are barking up the wrong tree and itís weird. Me not having much of a case is like surface level scummy but if you think about it for two seconds you realize that itís day 1 and itís either this or no lynch.

Iíd love for you to case me instead of continuing to prove my case regarding you throwing poo poo to see what sticks

Okey dokies. You know better. You know how day 1 works. You really think that Iím going to have a slam dunk case on Gene? Like do you really think that I would believe in my heart of hearts Gene is scum because he hamfistedly mentioned vanilla town? I thought it was minor evidence, but minor evidence was all I had just like every town ever on day one barring role madness games. I make a mountain out of that mole hill, someone attacks that mole hill, someone attacks that person for attacking that mole hill, and someone eventually does something of substance enough that a real case is born. I am just more open about what Iím doing than others.

Same with Hal. You ďcaughtĒ Hal with a limpwristed contradiction. You can look at it for two seconds and say ďhmm flerp also said something positive about Geneís responseĒ and perhaps conclude that Hal was impressed by the temerity of Geneís response instead of the substance, which is basically what Hal said.

My point is you arenít looking for scum. You are looking for a case, surface level scummy behavior that you, as potential scum, could hang your hat on and pretend to be scumhunting. And if you were a newbie, it would be one thing, but youíve been part of a bunch of day ones and know how it goes. Yet you specifically and, I would say, deliberately, tried to derail the pressure on Gene while admitted that you only tangentially read the pressure on him. It demonstrates no thought in your posting or your hunting, just searching for out of context bits that you can use to pretend to case someone despite knowing their alignment.

That doesnít even make sense. You are in the same breath defending yourself for poking at people to see how it snowballs, then calling me potential scum for doing what, by your account, seems to be the exact same behavior.

If you were just doing what I was doing, and not, say, trying to find an easy target, why did you jump on me for it? If I was mirroring your behavior, I would have thrown shade at CC for casing a poor newbie

Because I donít see you offering any real opinions. Thereís a difference between asking everyone what they think of other people while throwing out broad suspicions (what I see you doing) and asking people you are suspicious of to explain their actions (where I started) and then moving in to opinions on case. The latter is grounded in your OWN thoughts and feelings; the former just looks like faking it.

What is it you feel I am doing that is different from what you are doing?

First of all, how would I possibly have real opinions at that point? How do you possibly have real opinions at this point? You yell and complain and see how people react and the get real opinions. The idea that you expect anyone to have any hard opinions is ridiculous

The difference is you didnít show your work. You wrote down the answer (that I was being scummy) without even thoroughly reading what was going on. I donít have hard opinions right now, and the fact that you have hard opinions doesnít show a real conclusion on your part. Hell, the fact that you think itís possible or good to have hard opinions right now shows you are removed from the town mindset.

Maybe we just play D1 differently? Iím having a hard time believing you are writing all this with genuine intent. Iíve never seen you get on, say, Inf for being 100% certain he was right about reading someone based on a tangential gut read, at least not in a format that caused you to write five paragraphs about it.

Iíve gotten on Inf plenty of times. The game that I recently played with him that I didnít really get on him were special circumstances where I wanted him to think I was scum so I was super buddying up to him. Unfortunately it worked on everyone but him. Like Iíve been called scum in every game because Iím aggressive.

I have become uninterested in brutally murdering you

So are you saying you canít form any opinions on anyone until you engage them directly or something? I really want to ask you who you think are scum right now but I am getting the feeling youíre gonna be all ďtoo early for opinions,Ē and I think you can see why thatís frustrating and suspicious.

I think Gene is scum due to his forced posting which is why I voted him. I donít have any other scum reads.

Okay I will do this.

i think flerp and Quid are being very townie.

I don't think YPM's initial case being forced is bad because it's D1 and cases are going to be terrible. That said, this is real bad.


There are still 2 days left in D1 and you're saying that your original throwing things at the wall and see what sticks case is the only way to go or we no lynch?

That's crazy and doesn't match the trying to pull us out of jokephase narrative you've been saying.

Although actually as I'm writing this and reading this post again I think maybe he means bad cases are all we have to go on or else we'd be resigned to no lynching. YPM is that what you mean?

I should probably erase all the rest of that but too bad, we're stream of conscious-ing this poo poo.

Moving on to this post:


Yes, I was saying we would no lynch otherwise. No lynching is bad that's my opinion I hope you like it

Right but are you saying it's either a bad case or no lynch OR your bad case or no lynch?

There's a difference but I don't know if I'm being clear about it.

A bad case or no lynch. All day 1 cases are bad.
