Because that's not how I play this game. I try to vote the people I think are scum.

Never said you had to be scum and I can vibe with the idea that you just think redfire and yd are super scummy and need to die, i just don't really see why the poe order matters
Of all tyrannies,a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

Because I don't play the game by just making a poe and not caring because I can be wrong? So I'd rather vote people I think are actually scum over people that I just think are ???

I've seen a lot of games lost because people are like oh we just flip these people and then we win and guess what the first 3 flipped arent scum and they lose.

But you do think SS and mena are scum, or are they no longer in your poe?

...Being in a POE is not the same as being scum?

It just means I am not town reading them.

If you put a gun to my head and ask me what color SS flips I would say green. Same with mena.

But that doesn't mean I town read them.

@all

Can all the Town players not voting Menalque stop dragging their knuckles and either vote them or put forth some concrete xyz case why you aren't? You're making it easier for scum to hide by refusing to do anything meaningful regarding the Menalque slot.

This is an example of what I consider to be acceptable:

In post 6184, Something_Smart wrote:
In post 6095, Datisi wrote:i'm waiting for
(1) mena to do something ai
(2) s_s to give a read on him

I think Mena's reaction to the gambit was moderately +town (I believe I already said as much?) because he clearly expressed ignorance that his predecessor claimed. (Could be faked ignorance, but if he's scum it probably wasn't real.)

In post 6244, Something_Smart wrote:
In post 6241, Datisi wrote:ok fine - how well do you think you can read mena

I would say, better than I can read most people. I recall one game, cursed though it was, where I was pretty much the only person to (correctly) call out Mena as scum. Of course I was not in a position to convince anyone, but when am I ever?

That's honestly the main thing that's making me feel this way, so I don't know how accurate it is. But I don't think I've played with scum-Mena many other times (and I can't recall ever confidently and incorrectly scumreading him), so I guess I have an okay read rate historically.


This is an example of what I consider to be unacceptable:

TOWN: Datisi, scamper, cat, Nero

Currently considering as possible scum (this is dynamic and changes depending on the mood): Ydrasse, SS, fireisred, TSQ, Frogster

I'm pretty sure fire is way likely to flip red and I'm not going to be strongarmed into voting a worse wagon.

Fire has some plausible deniability with their play because of their high neuroticism + agreeableness, neurotic people get stressed out and incriminate themselves all the time (I'm super neurotic) and agreeable people can look like bandwagoners.
