I feel like most of your opinions/reads have been sheeped and you're just pointing things out and not making conclusions on them. It's like you're deliberately remaining neutral to keep your options open.

You realize that every player who has posted reads has been pretty vague and empty, right? (most of them offer just a few sentences after each read) Try again.

I'll take the vague accusation proudly because I'm an intuitive big-picture kind of guy. It takes a while for me to figure out how to describe things and details bore me.

Beefster, I don't think you have a very good perception of what a vague and empty read is.

a kindred spirit! me too, i like the overview approach!

gonna UNVOTE:
i was really flying on the caffiene when i voted him and there is a chance i was simply talking out of my ARSE.
he has responded well- i think its a fair point to say all reads are quite vague at this stage.
anyway, its all good for P.O.E!

Why did you completely ignore everything I said in to ask Bella about why she agreed with me? Am I a leper or something?

You gave reasons for your suspicion. Bella didn't. I also have a lot of experience with Bella as a person and didn't expect her to be scumreading me at this stage.

Mozamis, how is wagoning her going to help at all if she's just said real life went to shit and she will try to post tomorrow? If your goal is just outright lynching her now that makes sense, but if you want pressure on her I don't see how that will help.

@money: I did but the point i'm getting at is that Thor might be doing it on purpose.

if your reasoning is hard to dig out from a bunch of wordy wall-posts then it's harder for town to call you out on it yes?

i've used that tactic before myself

Ah I better see what you are saying. I misunderstood, apologies.

Do you have any remarks on what I have said about Flub? It should be able to be gathered from my ISO. No one else has really had anything to say about it. I'd appreciate another opinion.

If it's about Flubber adapting his behaviour... I guess it's scum-ish to be very self conscious, but I'm not seeing it as that strong an argument right now. I find it hard to comment on. I'm not really seeing it as much as you seem to, either.

I think Flubber was being brash and a bit clumsy in the early game and changed his approach when he got a bit of flak for it.
I don't think it was particularly scum.

Yeah I guess this puts it well. If he's town why would he not change his playstyle if it's not helping his game / his WC?

Mmm. I guess that's an equally valid interpretation. I think between this and reading too much into Beef I need to step back and maybe re-read some stuff.

Okay, so to get this straight;

1. You didn't understand the reason for my vote.
2. You agree I have expressed issues with Flubber and you find them difficult to piece out.
3. So you have an issue with my info not being clear and easy to understand.
4. So you complain that the entire Flubber case is bad, and that my vote is poor instead of just asking me to state my reasoning.
5. You don't reveal this until I ask for you to clarify your stance.
6. Your beef with me is that you think I'm trying to intentionally be hard to understand - ignoring that I'm the one getting actual info out of you by asking direct questions.

:neutral:

What's your issue with the Flubber wagon again?
I feel like I'm missing something here.

You are aware that the Beefster wagon just died and I killed it, right?

I like your scumreads fine.
I can understand null on Tex, and even though I have a vast amount of info to parse for my alignment I understand that people get lazy and refuse to read me.
But you're fine on *everyone* else?
Like, they're all decent town reads for you?

Can you explain why Errant and HeWhoSwims are decent reads for you?
Because I'm not there with either of them.

Well, that makes sense too. It's just that I don't consider it necessarily incriminating towards Flubber to change his tone if it's not helping his WC. Sure, he can do the same as scum, so that would make it NAI. I wasn't saying (or trying to say) that it was towny; it just doesn't look like something necessarily scummy for me.

I would make the suggestion that, as town, theoretically you're playing the game to scumhunt and when as scum you're playing the game not to get lynched.
Therefore, if your scumhunting style involves you getting some dirt on you - then if you've been playing as long as Flubber you are already aware of this and have accepted it.
So why the change?

Seems a reasonable point of suspicion to talk about to my mind.

I don't quite get the "getting dirt on you" part, is that about me or Flubber?

As town you scumhunt yes, but also townhunt. Playing town is not just scumhunting at least for me... it's also making sure you're game solving where you can, in whatever way.

Which of my opinions have been sheeped? If anything, other people have been sheeping me this game on things I've pointed out. Also, again, a playstyle point rather than an alignment point – anyone actually reading my posts can tell that I have actual reads.
