Your Personal Muse posted:

Bus the new guy who rolled over and offered to claim as soon as he had one (1) vote on him

This is a misrepresentation. He said:

Monathin posted:

But also: I'm not scum, just bad! Of that I can claim.

Which on first glance I read as “that’s weird to offer to claim” and then said “oh wait no that’s not actually what he meant.”

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

Quidthulhu

YPM’s “I wasn’t really reading his content well because I just wanted to make him look susp” isn’t sitting great with me.

I haven’t read Gene yet and I’ve only tangentially looked over that discussion. His explanation seemed reasonable and didn’t scream immediate scum or anything. I’ma eat lunch and then look at that.

Quidthulhu
Dec 17, 2003

Stand down, men! It's only smooching!



I’m confused, YPM, why are you pushing people to look at Gene activity that is...non-existent? This is basic jokephase crap.

YPM feels like he’s working really hard to get momentum on anyone he can while dismissing criticism of that as “well SOMEONE has to get the game going.” This doesn’t seem like a genuine way to start the game, tho, more like throwing a bunch of poo poo and seeing what sticks.

The initial two “offending” posts, as far as I can tell:

GeneX posted:

I'm jewish, why should I care about saving your goyishe holiday?

but I'm unfortunately town so I guess I have to try, and that starts by

##vote Monathin

GeneX posted:

I already soft-claimed jesus by saying I was jewish in this christmas themed game, so yes, 100%

my nonexistant role pm was the entirety of the gospel of matthew with "you're town" at the bottom

Mona’s analysis, which even he isn’t convinced is anything:

Monathin posted:

But yeah Gene voted me in the middle of jokephase before I'd even spoken up and I wasnt gonna say anything about it until I was sure jokephase was over. I didnt consider it immediately shady if I'm being honest.

Then YPM locks on for reasons unknown:

Your Personal Muse posted:

Mona you have my permission to vote the scum named gene

Your Personal Muse posted:

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

Your Personal Muse posted:

I didn’t say I wanted to make him look suspicious. I said that I want to put suspicion on him because, get this, it’s loving day 1 and I don’t know who is scum so I gotta yell a bit about nothing until something happens. You know this. What do you think about Gene?

I just am not seeing the initial content warranting this kind of hound dogging.

That's fair.

I actually don't love Gene's response to you, a little too flip. But I don't want to vote them

A contradiction! What gives, Hal?

Quidthulhu

Stand down, men! It's only smooching!



My initial reaction with Mona was to have him take off his tinfoil hat but it is odd that Gene is claiming to both followed that thread enough to have recognized Mona and then make a fuckup like that. It is also equally weird for Gene to go randomly find his post history to back himself up, tho.

What’s the deal, Gene

Quidthulhu
Dec 17, 2003

Yeah there’s no way that dude is scum

Feeling YPM, maybe Hal too. Even as a joke that’s a pretty abrupt turn around that looks more reactionary than genuine.

Quidthulhu

Stand down, men! It's only smooching!



That doesn’t 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.

Quidthulhu
Dec 17, 2003

Stand down, men! It's only smooching!



Because I don’t see you offering any real opinions. There’s 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?

Quidthulhu
Dec 17, 2003

Stand down, men! It's only smooching!



Maybe we just play D1 differently? I’m having a hard time believing you are writing all this with genuine intent. I’ve 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.

Also “removed from the town mindset” as if you have a monopoly on the intimate knowledge of what constitutes good town play

Quidthulhu

So are you saying you can’t 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 you’re gonna be all “too early for opinions,” and I think you can see why that’s frustrating and suspicious.
