Re: The N Word

I gave a reason for why the word is not the same when used by a white person as it is when used by a black person. I also gave a reason for why it should not be used by white people, and it is a reason that doesn't generally apply to black people. I gave a possible frame of reference for how the wor...

Re: The N Word

To expand on what y2k said a bit, with a couple examples and such. The pattern of sounds or symbols known as a word does not have almost any internal meaning (I gather that some linguists think there is a relation between sound and meaning, which is why I say almost, though if I were pedantic, I cou...

Re: The N Word

Hey remember how I said CroakandDagger routinely violates forum rules, and from what I understand, silences do nothing to dissuade him, just get rid of him until they expire, and make him even more antagonistic towards the mods and the community at large? Well, he's using racial slurs in a thread th...

Re: MINI MAFIA III - NEWBIE GAME - GAME THREAD

One of the things I was looking out for between D1 and D2 was rapid changes in behavior due to coaching (this was messed up by the substitution a bit). The weird thing is, the main change that occurred there was worcej suddenly looking extremely scummy, which is the reverse of how you expect that be...

Oh, and are we going to get Mafia QT (and if it exists, God QT)? I really am quite curious.

Re: MINI MAFIA III - NEWBIE GAME - GAME THREAD

Fair comment, but technically you were not revealed. They didn't catch you, you claimed. Sure, but it meant once I claimed, that was it for me. It made me (possibly excessively) careful on D2, where I squashed a bunch of clever plans that were based around my identity. I couldn't really afford to c...

Re: MINI MAFIA III - NEWBIE GAME - GAME THREAD

Nah, you had no way of knowing N1. Sure, I had docslipped a bit at EoD, but I didn't expect you to catch that. I did docslip repeatedly over the next day as the claims went through though. By that point, it didn't really matter anyway, I suppose. I had done literally the one useful thing I could pos...

Re: MINI MAFIA III - NEWBIE GAME - GAME THREAD

What pisses me off the most is I'm pretty sure I'm the only town who is mad now. Mad at myself for not catching DrCJG. Mad at you two for not getting on worcej. Mad at myself for not dragging you onto worcej. Mad at yavuz for THAT GODDAM END VOTE. Lastly, Jamie, if you ever make a game with one doct...

Re: MINI MAFIA III - NEWBIE GAME - GAME THREAD

Well played DrCJG, well played worcej I suppose, respect to DrCJG for keeping everyone off of worcej for long enough. sheep, this is why we try *not* to tunnel when we are town. yavuz, this is your fault. Not saying I don't deserve blame - I wouldn't have lynched DrCJG tomorrow most likely, and I sh...

Re: MINI MAFIA III - NEWBIE GAME - GAME THREAD

I'm honestly having trouble imagining how the scum team could be anyone other than yavuz/worcej at this point. If either of you are town we deserve to lose. How I miss the times when I could mislead myself into thinking damo666 or Bancroft's behavior was inexplicable and rather scummy. I will be aro...

Re: MINI MAFIA III - NEWBIE GAME - GAME THREAD

Riddle me this yavuz. If sheep is mafia, and has a partner who is not you, then unless that partner is me, that partner can move onto you, both scum can join you in voting for end, and we lose. Sure, maybe they'd get caught on the way, but it's a possibility. Why do you open us up to this? If you di...

Re: MINI MAFIA III - NEWBIE GAME - GAME THREAD

Dunno whether to interrupt this nonsense, or whether to let it stew for a while longer. Breakdowns at LYLO are not alignment indicative (nor is apathy and resignation fwiw), but we're still learning stuff here.

Re: MINI MAFIA III - NEWBIE GAME - GAME THREAD

Time to consolidate, I guess.
I think that yavuz/worcej is more likely than sheep/worcej.

Re: MINI MAFIA III - NEWBIE GAME - GAME THREAD

So the mafia have three basic strategies available to them today. The first is to go hard against the innocent. A DrCJG lynch is pretty implausible, so it would be against whoever of sheep/worcej/yavuz is not scum. In our current scenario, that makes sheep the innocent and yavuz/worcej the scumteam....

Re: MINI MAFIA III - NEWBIE GAME - GAME THREAD

True. In any case, it is impossible for sheep to be scum without being bussed at this point.

DrCJG, what do you think of the relative probability of yavuz and worcej being the busser?

Re: MINI MAFIA III - NEWBIE GAME - GAME THREAD

I dunno, at LYLO all you need is one mislynch (or even a draw, which we should take great care to avoid) to win automatically. If you bus, you are almost certainly condemning your teammate to death (especially if the bus is mutual, given that makes it likely you two will be the only wagons) and exte...

Re: MINI MAFIA III - NEWBIE GAME - GAME THREAD

I've already said who I saved. I saved DrCJG. There is no harm in saying this. The mafia know I'm the doctor. They have a factional roleblock. I am the only PR.

Re: MINI MAFIA III - NEWBIE GAME - GAME THREAD

I'm afraid I haven't had time to reread the whole thread, real life intruded on me. As such, my reads are still significantly derived from previous reads. I really can't see how DrCJG could be scum. DrCJG's behavior is extremely towny, and none of the scumteams including him make any sense to me. I ...

Re: MINI MAFIA III - NEWBIE GAME - GAME THREAD

The decision to kill Ike is definitely interesting. I would definitely have quite expected the NK to be either DrCJG or me, them killing me being somewhat conditional on them figuring out I'm doc (which I really think they could have - I suspect teacher2 figured it out around the time he started tow...
