Jan 30, 2007Irresponsible decolonization created immature states that were quickly swept into authoritarianism and corruption. As Stax said, building up the infrastructure would go a long way towards starting to solve Africa's problems.Posted in: Debate
Jan 24, 2007Ah, well, we gave it a good try.Posted in: Mafia
I have to start playing with more initiative, but it's hard to think of clever things to say all the time.
Jan 22, 2007Posted in: MafiaQuote from RafaelKWuffles: I'm pretty sure I said this when I claimed. Two (mine doesn't count).
Should someone else put their vote on bertrand (other than DYH or Chimp, since then we'd lose the count on Salubrious), I could double kill bertrand and Salubrious where they stand, but obviously I don't think bertrand is scum so I don't want to do that.
No. Vigging me is stupid, considering a lynch would prove my innocence while keeping me alive. A daykill would just kill me and let the mafia win.

Let's NOT jump to conclusions.
If salubrious is town, then we lose.
Raf, how many votes exactly does it take to use your daykill.
You still haven't answered.
Well, I'll survive a lynch attempt, so assuming three remaining scum we may live to see tomorrow. It's just that the town will lose a valuable day to kill a scum (Of course, the day might not end, as there's no way to know for sure. However, it's dangerous to make these kinds of assumptions).
Just to make sure my feelings are expressed before the end of the day, Vote bertrand.
Jan 21, 2007I have a feeling that this will end badly for the town, but if you're all so sure go ahead.Posted in: Mafia
Jan 21, 2007I don't care if you try to lynch me, as it will only prove my innocence. However, we don't know if the day will end or not so I advise the town to actually come with a plan of what to do with its (supposed) day-kills.Posted in: Mafia

1136 - Now suddenly unsure of who is scum - DYH or bert
1156 - Gives list of thoughts about other players and advocates killing bertrand
1160 - Uber-FOS's me. Suddenly, my ability is now unconfirmable (contrary to 1119), and he accuses me of lurking and little content
1172 - Claims "I'll do it tomorrow" is in all my posts, but concerned at bertrands voting of me.
So, having reviewed Wuffles' posts I must conclude that he is not nearly as scummy as I saw him yesterday. However, a few things still bother me. In particular, in 1119 he wants to test my ability by lynching me (and later by day-vig, which would kill me), but in 1160 says my claim is "totally untestable". Why the shift? The hyperbole seems a bit dodgy as well (Not to mention accusing me of not contributing when over half your posts are fluff). I'm no longer convinced that Wuffles is scum, but I still find his behavior suspicious.

Quote from Moss_Elemental@Salubrious: Your avvy looks familiar. Where did you get it?
Glad you guys like it.
It's part of a picture entitled "The Eclipse of the Sun" that I saw at the Metropolitan Museum this weekend. It was part of an exhibition of German art during the Weimar period. This picture in particular made a strong impression on me (Here's a much larger version) As my custom suggests, the person in the avatar is Paul von Hindenburg, former general and German president for much of the 1920's.
Jan 17, 2007I find it telling how a lot of people are suddenly very eager to jump on me. It just smacks of opportunism. I have to go to bed now, but tomorrow I will lay out my case.Posted in: Mafia
Jan 17, 2007Salubrious posted a message on Official 2008 United States Presidential Election threadObama is officially running! linkPosted in: Debate
It will be interesting to see how his campaign develops.
Jan 16, 2007Posted in: MafiaQuote from RafaelKObviously it would be nice to hear from Wuffles and Salubrious what they think of my analysis, and also from Chimp and Fayul since ain't no lynch going through without their say-so.
I'm still not sure on the DYH-bertrand thing. As far as I can tell DYH hasn't done anything really scummy today, while bertrand's arguments are suspect. Like you mentioned, he could be bad town instead of scum, but it's WIFOM and there's no way to be sure.
And I'm town, obv, but I can't prove it without risking ending the day prematurely. However, I have my suspicions about Wuffles. He's been acting a bit shifty today.
Jan 15, 2007Well, I'm back from New York, where I've been the past weekend. Went to the Statue of Liberty and everything.Posted in: Retired Clan Threads
Sucks about the suspension. Hope it wasn't for too long.
EDIT: Oh yeah, and I got a new avatar.
