Bow down why are are you so inclined to vote Lemon, if Titus didn't even present a case that could?

That doesn't make any sense. If you wanted to see what would happen, you would've voted Lemon before Titus asked you to.
This sequence looks like Revan is stretching for reasons to interact/scumread bowdown. I don't like the subtle embellishment phrasing in 202
of "so inclined" to vote, like bowdown's vote was simply a vote, and it's not as if bowdown's scumread on Lemon wasn't established beforehand. One of my favorite tells is exaggeration/embellishment in pushing something, scum feel compelled to make their reads/cases sound more genuine and so they tend to add a subtle layer of aggressiveness when they comment that townies don't usually exhibit. Further, I think 203
is a sensible answer to Revan's question, I can't really grok Revan's comment in 204
. bowdown sheeping Titus doesn't preclude things from happening, I feel if Revan was honestly engaging with bowdown's response then he would have considered that.
I like what bowdown pointed out in 211
But the big kicker is here:
In post 269, Revan wrote:
I never scumread Titus, I voted her to get a reaction because I was having a tough time discerning her alignment.
This statement isn't congruent with Revan's ISO. Revan entered the game giving some townreads and then calls Titus "obviously scum" in 156
. Even if this was intentionally meant to be hyperbole, if Revan were town the Titus scumread behind the post would still be genuine. However in 269
he's now claiming that he "never" scumread Titus - I think a townie might acknowledge that their read was weaker than they presented, but I don't think a townie would dismiss it entirely. It reads more like scum!Revan is nervous about what Jae pointed out in 243
and is trying to wave away the inconsistency between their "scumread" in Titus and their switch to Jae.
p-edit: maybe if you had waited for my forthcoming post it wouldn't be "wtf" to you? Why did you make that comment before I had explained?
