Not sure 100% what you mean. Do you mean why do I care if others think I'm scum or something else? I care, because I want to understand their reasoning, and I can put myself in their shoes it'll help me understand their train of thought.
You're focusing on the wrong part of the game and that will get you manipulated by Scum.
As town, it is your job to find scum. Everything you do should be centered around finding and lynching scum.
If you are doing that, then town will recognize their own. It's not your job to appeal to town, that is scum's job.
