Hey Tolly Totes, you're around, that's nice. Now I'm just a real simple guy, so maybe I'm not too good at reading into things and don't want to jump to any wrong conclusions, but were you trying to convey something with those empty-quotes? I sure would like to hear all you've got to say. Since you are right here, ready to post but not posting until you just did.

Tolly Totes if I'm wrong then you can satisfy my suspicious mind with more posting. I will try my best to read you fair.

And another third vote so early in day 1! The only thing I can conclude here is that both Tolly and Lumpen are scum, and thus scum together.

You've caught my attention with requesting a "deep" dive. Perhaps I'll give you a read of your strange behavior and artificial analysis, and you'll have a response. I wonder how you'll gauge my response, and the exact wording of your reply.

I think this is a scum post. It reads to me like he doesn't know whether to be

(a) serious ("I really do want to take a look at dgk and lumps...") or
(b) laid-back ("...for their super serious votes during [jokephase]")

It's like he's trying to sound town, but I can't imagine that he actually thinks he's going to deduce dgk/lumpen's alignment at this point in the game.

it's like a pseudo OMGUS without following through with a vote. lumpen's questions seem reasonable to me (a little aggressive, maybe thats just his style), and imo AA is responding poorly. I'm looking forward to his take on dgk and lumpen after he "takes a look" at them.

I did vote Lumpen though, and then unvoted when I realized he wasn't making a scummy quote vote.

The follow up callout was only in response to some weirdly framed pressure that put scare quotes and italics on a single word from my post.

This push feels inauthentic, and poorly substantiated.

MMT claims I lied about something. My vote o. Her is not an omgus, but in direct response to her actually lying and claiming things that did not happen.

I mean, I'll be waiting on clarification on how I lied about anything.

Dgk and Lumpen are weirdos, but mmt looks like scum crawling out of the woodwork for an easy, opportunistic d1 push.

Like I said, she calls me out about lying for something, but what lies have I told?

She makes a point to call out my suspicion of Lumpen and dgk for trying to determine their alignment when all I say is I really want to look at them, but then in turn has a solid read on me for some reason and doesn't see the contradiction she's already made in her obviously fake posting.

I mean. Im ready to call it on mmt. She's scum. Out of the votes on me, hers is clearly the worst.

To be honest AA's vote on MMT reads as a light OMGUS to me too, but not enough to drop a fifth vote on him before a lot of players have even come in with a jokevote when it could be an attempt by scum to push a quick mislynch on the first person that draws any amount of heat.

"Lying" was probably the wrong word, my apologies. I'll re-phrase the case:

- I don't believe that the "I want to look at them for their seriousposts" is a real opinion that town would have.
- your vote on Lumpen didn't sound like an actual vote, so the fact that felt the need to unvote and justify it feels like scummy self-consciousness.
