Apr 29, 2016@ghosting your questions are...Posted in: Mafia
ugh. I feel like you're still being very manipulative and it grosses me out. like, "if I die and you get my ability, is it any more valid?"
am I the only one who sees the really slimy assumptions he's making when loading this question? and how it's not even a real question at all?
tell me I'm crazy here.
Apr 29, 2016@iso: hopefully my last question on the trial.Posted in: Mafia
your narrative makes sense except that I don't think your point 2 is true. I was there. that's not how the flow of the trial went.
show me the posts that indicated to DV that mato was the likely lynch Yesterday. there's about a page of posts between where DV voted mato and where he moved.
I just reread that whole section and don't see it.
Apr 29, 2016I'm not sure if I'm being insulted or not.Posted in: Mafia
Apr 28, 2016I keep loling at stuff vaimes says.Posted in: Mafia
Apr 28, 2016@vaimes: I won't lie, I've been trying to flavor game proph since before the game began.Posted in: Mafia
... based on the flips i abandoned that idea pretty early on. however, there's still a couple of things I'm keeping an eye out for that I want to at least consider.
toxic paints though? lol
@PoTA: ghosting's claim... well I am inclined to think that it could be fake. we've already been over how easy it is to fabricate (just... don't kill the folks on the jury the same day that ghosting is) and yeah, claiming it totally invalidates it. usually townies who have abilities like that are very reluctant to claim at all because they know the value is erased the moment they claim.

hm!Quote from Sir Chris »See, what weirds me out is that you seem to be the only person outside of GJ and maybe D_V that's really vibing that way. You are correct, but I am forced to wonder if you are correct because of insight or because you have no other choice but to be correct due to information on hand.
on some level you won't be able to know. obviously I'm going to tell you I came to the conclusion organically. all I can say is that I have spent a great deal of my time on this web forum since 2007 being a very angry person, occasionally at great personal cost. my tenure as mod and admin of this website stands out as a time where that was especially true. Mafia in particular was an outlet for anger. I have said some very nasty things to people. I have been a cruel bastard forward and backwards in these games and justified it all by saying that it was a tactic. a way to get reads. that by pushing people to their emotional breaking point I could get reads on them and win Mafia games. i told myself that I turned it off as soon as I was outside of the game, that it was all just a way to play the game and didn't affect anybody in any real way. this was mostly just lying to myself. ultimately those feelings sort of seeped into my being and the distinction got lost. at its worst I had literal hatred of another player on this site that I carried outside of the games, outside of the forum, even. the culmination was a really embarrassing episode that caused me to get suspended from the forum for the first time. I made a lot of people very angry. a player in this game asked if I could be banned forever (see my sig). since then I've made a lot of effort to be more positive and never allow myself to again be the person dragging a game down into the bowels of unpleasantness.
... I've told this whole story a few times now. I apologize if you've seen it before. I think I might have mentioned it in the jury chat.
anyway. how does this apply to you? I saw a guy who was throwing a fit in the game. my gut reaction was to say you were "dragging the game down" to a level that I dislike... a level that I used to engage at.
but I had to stop myself from succumbing to my gut instinct to get angry at YOU. i was planning to talk to you post game about this but you've kind of forced me here.
I divorced all emotion from my read. I will say that being in the jury helped with this. I was removed from the action and so I was an observer with a more objective perspective than those in the thread. I don't know how it would have gone if I had been here at the time.
I saw a guy who was angry, and I saw a guy who was stirring up *****.
I give you enough credit to think that you can fake being angry if it would advance your agenda.
but I also give you enough credit that you can self-censor REAL anger as scum if the expression of that anger wouldn't be tactically smart.
regardless of whether the anger was real or not, I had and have a hard time seeing what the tactical advantage of that tirade would be as scum. so I have to conclude that you aren't.
maybe it's a next level play, easily possible. but I'm reasonably certain that I'm right and I'm going to stand by it.
