Okay, it's time to have some Actual Content TM and Non-Reactionary Ideas (C)!
Since apparently nobody liked Question Time.

Blamp is towncore, I doubt a new player, even one with this much survivor experience, would be this towny and, more importantly, coherent and self-consistent as scum.
This is terrible reasoning. I don't think it is entirely fair to say that blamp is inexperienced and that the survivor doesn't translate over, because clearly blamp is acting like a reasonably experienced player, so saying that he can't be scum is really just not true. Blamp is towny but nowhere near towncore or even a strong townread because we don't know how he'd be playing this as scum
Good guy bona. More like this pls

TFB omits 'at least'.
Did I do so incorrectly? I thought for a set of N objects where the objects are either in set m(afia) or set not m(afia), you are pulling n distinct items from the set of N objects, and that in the set of n pulled items there are k items that belong to the set m, the probability of pulling EXACTLY k items out of the n items you pulled from set N is P(X = k) = ((mCk)*((N-m)C(n-k)))/(NCn). Now I am very rusty at combinatorics, admittedly, so I could be wrong, but I think I am right and I definitely meant to omit at least.
I think you're right. It's me that's rusty. It's an age thing.

I'm slightly more suss of demon than Maniac though either being scum wouldn't surprise. Be really funny if both are.

I don´t know if Damo can really read me or he is just buddying me. If it´s the second it´s working.

“I did not have sexual relations with that woman” Bill Clinton

What’s interesting about this lie is that Bill avoids using the contraction ‘didn’t’ and also that he refers to Monica Lewinsky as ‘that woman’. Both of these are signs of lying. As with all verbal tells they aren’t 100% accurate of course but could be interesting none the less. The explanation of why people avoid contractions is because liars want to seem honest and precise. They think ‘did not’ sounds more convincing that ‘didn’t’.

So does this tell apply to mafia? I don’t know. Some people always avoid contractions and others may not have English as a first language. To really dig deep we’d have to establish what every player’s speech/typing pattern is when they’re town and then see if there is a change when they’re scum.

But just for my amusement I’ve been reading some D2 posts and picking out a few avoided contractions. Here are some examples…

HR
Bozotheclown - His not knowing what was going on at EoD in relation to Flum was not what I'd immediately associate with Bozo

Kgray
it literally does not matter, why are you asking her this now

Bonatogether
will not be posting until maybe tomorrow, maybe in like 30 minutes if im feeling bore

Goldfinger
There is a logic to wanting to roleblock your kill, even if you personally do not personally agree with it.

Bozo
I checked and there were other games since M64 you both played where you did not claim a roleblock and potentially could have

Bozo
Throwing in M56 does not change that fact you mentioned the 2 recent games where ghug did claim a roleblock.

Bozo
I did not agree with kgray's case and don't see why ghug found it "very compelling
Bozo

Being generally insulting to other players would look less like a scum ploy if you did not keep pointing out that it is something scum would not d

Bozo
Donny was the lead wagon when Vecna made this post. I find it suspicious how Vecna subtly defended Donny if he had not read anything yet


Damo
Bozo's find on Bob strengthens the case against him. I do not foresee changing my vote so #$en

Bob
M56, which you are conveniently ignoring that I also listed, did not have ghug in i
Bob

If I missed a game we were both in it was entirely due to the fact that my check was not particularly thorough

Jamie
I was not strongly scumreading either Durga or Kgray

Jamie
Can you explain what you did not like about it

So the things I found interesting was Bozos avoidance of contractions, sometimes avoiding them twice in one sentence. Kgray’s avoidance coupled with avoiding g a name also piqued my interest as does Damo’s comment about not being likely to change his vote.

So scum team is Bozo, Bob, Damo, Jamie and Kgray

You’re all welcome
This may be the most galaxy brained shit ever. The best part is if the guy gets two people right (33.3% chance (Math:((5C2)*(13C3))/(18C5))) or somehow 3 (9.10% chance Math:((5C3)*(13C2))/(18C5)) he'll be gloating forever. I love it. Is Maniac normally like this?
If any other people made a post like that I would say he just want to distract the thread, but Maniac is just Maniac.

In fact, I think most of the times he made some weird play he was town. But Bozo probably can confirm it.

Jamie's in a good mood.
It's just irritating that someone who has done so little to actually participate or try to hunt scum or help town in any way whatsoever would spend so much time and effort composing a pointless shitpost at this point.

His last posts where so "generic" (in the lack of a better term), I can´t feel any emotion on those posts like when you are being wrongly accused of being scum.

Surely it should be "were Bozo's lack of..." ?

In a long bloviating waste-of-space post about grammar you might at least get your own grammar right.

Your post is utter nonce sense which, as usual, demonstrates that you're an arsehole who thinks he's clever.
Noting this down for when I check these two later. I kinda feel like these two might be scum together, but I'm not sure if there's anything else to back it other than me scumreading both of them.

I don't like this. Rdr has done nothing nearly good enough to land himself in anyone's towncore. Sure he's been mostly consistent with how he normally plays, but that shouldn't be enough to put him in towncore.

I did one thing. I claimed 100% confirmed vanilla town. I never lie about something serious like this. ;)

Yeah he should've been more emotional like me, then everybody would townread him. Anyway, off to take a dig into celaph, jamie and goldie hopefully before I go to sleep. Maybe rdr too if I'm really motivated.

But yes let me explain my read on Foxcastle.

Let's break down his iso. Only 16 posts so not a lengthy task:

- After pointing out the bot error, he starts complaining about the poor quality of the early shitposting. Durga asked him about this and he made a long rambling bloviating post about serotonin levels. Real "look at me and my extensive vocabulary" stuff.

- I jokingly suggest he should go on Joe Rogan's podcast (where people often talk in that self-satisfied pseudo-intellectual manner) and he sarcastically encourages me.

- He predicts that Durga will want to kill a lurker.

- Similar sarcastic encouragement towards BobMcBob.

- Claims to assume the votes on DeathLlama would be "joke votes" but notes that the people on the wagon take things seriously (implying their votes are sincere; I know mine was). Also thinks that all the votes on Durga are joke votes.

- Provides some simple points of advice to Clamp.

- Suggests he finds Bob and Bona hard to read.

- Durga responds to his comment about how the votes on DeathLlama were not joke votes. Fox replies "I didn't mean you, obviously". This is a bit odd as it implies that Foxcastle thinks Durga was joke-voting.

- Says "I like how Lamp thinks" in response to Clamp asking if "cool" means "town" in the context of Bob saying "bona is cool".

- Challenges Bob to update his view on DeathLlama "now that DL is back". Note that, at the time Foxcastle said this, DeathLlama had indicated "just got off a plane" but had not actually contributed any more.

- Engages in a short nit-picking argument with Kgray about whether he was "looking for laughs".

So let's summarise the weight of these posts:

1. He is very dismissive of the DeathLlama wagon, and when DL shows up he seems very keen for people to re-evaluate their DL votes, even before DL has said anything useful.

2. He predicts that Durga will want to kill lurkers, yet when Durga does vote for a lurker (DeathLlama), he implies Durga was joke voting.

3. He repeatedly offers help and support to Clamp.

4. His other posts are composed mostly of sarcasm and bloviating.

This does NOT remind me of Town!Foxcastle earnestly looking for scum and trying to solve the game. Zero scumhunting is evidenced from these posts.

This DOES remind me of Scum!Foxcastle trying to appear present and active without doing much, lowkey defending a lurker (team mate?) and lowkey buddying the newbie.

Conclusion: I think Foxcastle is scum.
For @vecna this is how and where the case began. Important to note that while DL was town it is important to note a) that Fox could only know that if he were scum and b) that jamie is correct to point out this forceful defense came before DL justified any such defense.

As for you, I feel you're a really strong player, but your reread seems pretty poor and low-effort and your posting just doesn't give me the vibe of vecna making good reads and trying to solve.
Im not going to respond to the Fox parts, because I have no way of knowing what he was thinking or why he did those things (other than knowing it was some outcome of a towny mindset).

Anyways, correct me if im wrong, but the only game we played together I was scum or 3P, no?

I remember me buddying you that entire game and you didnt suspect me a single time.

So what is this based on? Why elevate my towngame that I dont think you've ever experienced?

(also, I literally admitted my play this game would be low effort, and im doing the best I can with the time I have available. I get that some people want something more out of this slot since it replaced out in a "compromised" position where people were somewhat concerned, but this is what I can provide. Needless to say, it will become obvious over time that it is in fact a town slot).
