If Csareo is being Csareo and doing the exact same thing as that game you linked and he was town, why is it a null to you?

@Toby: You're right I should have examined his other games too – but I'm too tired for reading more Csareo posts today.
(However, I took a look on all of them and I didn't find an example for a finished game which he was scum in. Also, I strongly dislike the fact that it seems that he tends to replace out of games.)

@Goodmorning: Well, the players' reaction might be informative. However, it's a strange kind of filter thought that we should read the game and I'm unable to do it right now. I started catching up at 23:30 or so (I don't remember) and it's 0:45 now...

I'm sorry, did you miss the part where I was on Vacation with Limited Access for the last week? Did you miss the part where I'm going to catch up on 10 pages on the plane? How about you cut me some slack, OK Chief?

In post 218, goodmorning wrote:"If you only answer my questions I'll surely unvote you." If that's not appeasing I don't know what is.

I feel kind of frustrated because there are certain players who look scummy to me, but I'm met with all kinds of resistance when I push that lynch.
It happened in another game, where I was very sure someone was scum, but it was like talking to a brick wall trying to get my point across.
All it did is make me look scummier and him look townier.
Does that help you understand why I might be trying to get off the TSO wagon?
Explain your read on Nero.

Actually, it comes from the same pattern I always see scum fall into. Early humor and misdirection rather than scum hunting.
It kind of looks like that's NeroCain's meta,IE, being a goofball, but that's one of my red lights. Other things that had me alarmed.
So when I first read the game I thought Csaro was a lil' to "try hard" but his wagon went rather fast and that worries me but I'd prob be ok with his vig.

If he's town then yes.

Remind me of your read on him.

It's as light as you would expect a 7 post read to be.
Explain your read on TSO.

- Humor and Misdirection
- Meta Change
- The interaction where he showers me in compliments until you guy's don't
- RVS voting me while also giving me a compliment
- Keeping RVS vote on me after calling me town about a dozen times after
- Refusing to answer ^
- How others joined my wagon when it became obvious TSO slipped on my meta
- Look at these two post, three posts apart
But here he's just showing his ability to scumhunt in a mediocre fashion, whereas there he was actively justifying any scummy actions that he did?

Idiocy confirmed!

- He actually keeps up with the VI gambit unnecessarily for several posts
- Thor Votes TSO and says he'll vig me (this needs more looking into)
- Refusing to answer my questions and being anti-town

He kept affirming with others that I was being "retarded" and an "idiot", but couldn't back up an example where a question seemed idiotic.
I think the whole treatment was abusive and a gambit to be town read. Apparently it was in the cool to be calling Csareo a moron while refusing to answer his question.
PEdit: Sweetheart, I'm not sure if you were reading or not, but I was actually the one calling you town.

You''re right, and I falsely implicated that you thought I was scum. You never even had a vote on me.
Explain why you would unvote a scumread just for answering questions.

Because I wanted off the TSO wagon as soon as possible.

Maybe it is best if I'm vigged. Scum will use me as a wall for the rest of the game anyway.

I agree with Csareo that it is odd that TSO left his vote on him while defending him. It shows a disconnect between action and vote that I find worthy of a vote.

@Csareo - welcome to where I was pages ago. I agree with you, you should be vigged.

@TSO
That is not my intention. I'm trying to be respectful and understanding while asking you questions.
It isn't me who's blowing things out of proportion. I am curious, on why you think we're in some sort of fight?

Can you show me the accusation or illogical question you have in mind?

TSO, is your RVS vote now a serious vote?

You first insinuate Csareo may be scummy, but then you follow it up by insinuating that you're not voting for him because the wagon (which means it looks scummy). So you follow this up by voting someone not on the wagon you just insinuated was scummy and then playing iffys on Csareo's alignment.

None of that makes sense

A wagon on a town player going fast is an excellent indication of that player being town and scum piling on. + just 'cause a wagon is scum lead it doesn't mean all the scum are on it. So why are you feigning ignorance here? Also flipping your mind on someone is in no way alignment indicative.

Even though this wasn't meant for me, I fell I may be able to explain, from my point of view why it is a null.

Personally I don't allow meta to give me a town read, anyone can stick to their town meta as scum. It's when people break their meta that it gives a scum read.

Every time you post and don't say anything it makes the game one post longer and more daunting, which makes cute baby animals cry.
I wish you a fair amount of luck in your catchup. I think it might be needed the way this game is going.

In post 232, Csareo wrote:Does that help you understand why I might be trying to get off the TSO wagon?

So basically you're concerned that it's making you look bad?
Hmmmmmmmmmm.

explaining Nero snipped and that

So you're scumreading him because he makes jokes? I don't think he's directing anyone anywhere in particular.

- Humor and Misdirection

I really don't see TSO either being humourous or attempting to direct conversation.

- Meta Change

How many games have you played with TSO? Because as far as I can tell I've played in 6 at least with him, not counting any games where either of us was in hydra.
I know a fair amount about his meta and the way it's developed, particularly this new slightly less fucks given style (which I like a bit better than the somewhat abrasive TSO of yesteryear).
I'm not sure whether you do.

- The interaction where he showers me in compliments until you guy's don't

I don't think that happened; or, if it had, that it would be alignment-indicative.

- RVS voting me while also giving me a compliment

1) not sure that was meant as a compliment
2) that's kind of what happens when you RV. The number of times I've randomly voted someone with a "HIIIII" or an alarmingly cheery smiley is far greater than the number of times I've yelled something like "SCUM OMG" or "DEATH TO THE WEST" or something.

- Keeping RVS vote on me after calling me town about a dozen times after

This did happen, but why do you find it scummy?

- Refusing to answer ^

Refusing to answer anything is never a scumtell.

- How others joined my wagon when it became obvious TSO slipped on my meta

How is others joining your wagon indicative of TSO-Scum?

- He actually keeps up with the VI gambit unnecessarily for several posts

I don't think that was a gambit and I don't think he found it unnecessary.

- Thor Votes TSO and says he'll vig me (this needs more looking into)

But what does that have to do with TSO being Scum??

- Refusing to answer my questions and being anti-town

Being anti-Town is also not a scumtell.

P-EDIT: Please show me where I've said you're Scum. I'll wait.

You said you had a read on me of some sort. I'd like to see it explained, yeah?

Having thought about this question (I woke up about an hour ago) I must admit, my null-read is based upon the assumption that a scum!Csareo wouldn't have a very different gameplay. (I didn't find any games which he was surely scum in.) However, in Mini#1601 (before replaced into his slot on Day1) he had done more vote and read-flipping than here. We must remember this, though this may be a sing of a kind of improvement of his gameplay.

@Thor. I re-checked TOS. He should know Csareo's gameplay well – yet he's putting too much effort into his conversation with him. Also, TSO had voted for "Caesar" and our mod posted that his vote wouldn't be counted. TSO hasn't correct his vote since then (nor did another vote), as far as I can see. These things are disturbing.

Asking questions in and of itself is null 'cause both alignments can and will do it. Do you think her questions have moved the gamestate along?

2nd part: I've never said that it's a towntell. On the other hand, questioning me made me re-check my previous game with Csareo and examine his interactions with TSO. So, the answer for your question is yes.

You are using a hypothetical. Let's talk about what is happening in this game right now. Are you town reading Csareo? I didn't say you said all scum were on the Csareo wagon anywhere. If you think the wagon on Csareo is scum lead, who do you think is leading it then and why?

What about these actions do you find disturbing? To be clear, does disturbing = scummy? When you say T S O is putting too much effort into his conversations with Csareo, what do you mean?
