Hal's at the top of my list for ignoring my callout and not posting anything substantial, and for the reasons I posted the callout in the first place. RF for trying to turn a bunch of experimental votes into a bandwagon. Nobody else on the same level as these two.

##vote Hal Incandeza

I will grant you I have not posted anything substantial, I have been pretty busy the last two days so I have just been popping in. As far as your callout, I assume you mean:

charms posted:

There might be something going on with the Content Game vs. Joke Phase factionalism. This post is suspicious:


It looks like you're showing up from out of nowhere to declare your allegiance to the Content Gamers by participating in the game and then hypothetically shooting a known Joke Phaser for arbitrary reasons.

My question is what exactly are you suspicious of? Like is there something wrong with being pro-content gamer and anti-sal?

Not Voting (5): charms, Eat The Rich, Hal Incandenza, hambeet, Mr. Humalong

With 16 alive, it's 9 votes to execute. The current deadline is January 25th, 2020 at 6 p.m. CST -- that's in about 1 day, 1 hour.

We have about 1 day left.
Those who are not voting, why not? Would you please make your top three suspects and cast a vote?

I am not voting because I have yet to pay enough attention to have more than the "gut feel" I had on Sal earlier. I really don't even have a top 3 suspects yet! I have Sal, RF (the b- extra votes is mildly sus) and maybe you yourself Lumpen, but equally likely someone else once I actually think more about it later tonight.

Hmmm I think it's interesting that AA was bothered enough about getting some heat for explicitly saying that he was going to check out for 24 hours to check into the thread multiple times instead of actually checking out. He may be that third person on my list

Oh drat what an unprecedented thing that would be. It's never happened before and we don't even have a word for it! I'm going to call it bussing since I just invented it so I get to name it

lmao I think I will adopt that term too!

Also coming from Sal where we were just on a scum team that did nothing but bus each other it's a little hard to believe

b- was on that pretty early though so I wouldn't jump to him bussing right away without more reasons

hambeet posted:

Why sal, Hal? I thought you were pals.

Because he is mal?

I don't like Sal for a few reasons

1. Likes 2 Penny's take on content game early on but later flips to having "suspicion" of 2P that doesn't have a lot of justification, then only votes him weakly at the end of the day

2. Seems to be tunneled on Lumpen, but why? Because of content game? Unclear why he has this hard read

3. Over the top defense and buddying of b- that he has declared will carry through the whole game.

These are some fairly hard opinions that are not justified by Sal's posting, I think town Sal is going to be a little more circumspect and would be prodding at his scum/town reads more and not just voting

SalTheBard posted:

Did you guys skip my post where I said it's OMGUS? I don't like playing Mafia with Lumpen. That's part of my posts. I don't like content game so early because it's scummy and pointless white noise.

B- is a strong town read for me, opinions can change, but as of now I wouldn't vote for him.

If you want to cuddle me for that then fine. You are going to cuddle a townie.

I did read all that, but I don't think OMGUS I don't like playing with this guy is a great reason to push someone for two days and I would think you'd have more but that's fine

This new statement about b- is much more rational than what you posted earlier that was "I won't vote for b- today or any day"

Hmmmm makes some cases on people besides lumpen

charms posted:

I didn't see Sal's vote until after I posted that diatribe. Since my case for Lumpen is virtually the same as my case for RF, after I saw Sal's post I thought it made more sense to double up on Lumpen rather than solovote again.

It may have helped if you let us know you had the same case on Lumpen as you did for RF

With 13 alive, it's 7 votes to execute. The current deadline is January 28th, 2020 at 8 p.m. CST -- that's in about :siren: 5 hours, 38 minutes.:siren:

Put down a vote.

Name your three top suspects, let's get to consensus.

My earlier List is still accurate. I will happily vote any if B-minus1, CPig, or SalTheBard.
