Aaro you really think I'm scummy for being frustrated at being tunneled for no reason? Lol
It’s less that it seems scummy and more that it seems in line with what happened in your last scum game. I guess to be clear, I’m scum reading you for the weird reaction to the day chat and not really the frustration.
That's even worse given you've acknowledged I don't read shit pre game
Here's what I remember the exchange being (with some paraphrasing):

me: hi bona, why didn't you say hi to me in the mafia chat
tfb: it's day time, there's no mafia chat
bona: actually, there's a day mafia chat in this setup
tfb: oh, I didn't read the setup closely and missed that
durga: Wait! There's a mafia day chat?

So to be explicit, the way I read the exchange, tfb either did a fake townslip or legitimately messed up and got the setup wrong. On the other hand, you made your comment after everything was clarified. That wasn't you not knowing the setup. It was you saying that you didn't know the setup unprompted. And that's a pretty big distinction in my book.

Okay... Well.... Now you know?
no

doesn't matter too much cause i'm simply right
Let me try.

If Durga is scum, who do you suspect might be her team-mates?

Why are you refusing to respond to this perfectly reasonable query?
The problem is that there is no way anyone could highlight that strong of a connection so early. There is no way that Bona could answer that question well even if Durga is scum. The point of the post is to take Bona's attention away from her, not pose a legitimate question. It would be scummier if she hadn't already tried to openly disengage from the conversation multiple times, but as is it just reads annoyed.

I didn't read the full exchange before I made that comment. I don't tend to read the entire thread before I post. Also don't get your point anyway.

Whoops! I quoted the wrong post and didn’t notice. I meant to respond to the post above it when damo says the game is weirdly quiet.
how is this relevant?
If the game has half the number of people in it, the game will probably feel like it has less activity? Especially when 1 of the 14 people is Maniac.

Also I think someone said this recently, but I do agree with the idea that the existence of a mafia day chat could slow down activity in the main thread.
Fair.

So aaro has a scum lean or null on everyone but bona celaph and maniac? Thinks maniac is town but is willing to vote him despite feeling 10 other people are more scummy??
I think maniac’s style ends up being anti-town so if there’s a wagon, I won’t be sad. Whereas, there are people that I think are scummier but I’d be sadder to miskill if I’m wrong. I hope that makes a bit more sense
Yes. I think I like this answer. Tell me who you'd be sadder to miskill
pretty much everyone. When I wrote that comment I was thinking of Sabi, TFB, and Jamie though.

So you... Want to kill maniac? Why those three? Because you think they are contributing well?

the point is that this response doesn't actually do anything more than paper over anything - all the points are either opinion or easily disprovable
It's day one. What scientific, factual evidence do you expect anyone to be in possession of, at this early stage in the game, and how do you expect them to have obtained it?
what actual evidence is there for these supposed awkward interactions? what possible weirdness is there with pyxxy? this entire thing has been turned around on me but the thing that started this was that durga tried to scumread me on the flimsiest possible basis and only retracted it after i pointed out that there was no ground for her to stand on. i don't claim to know anything else but this is frankly highly atypical for durga, as i see things.
Did Durga retract her scumread? I thought she just wanted the conversation to move on.

@aaro - skimming your reads post right now and one thing that strikes me is that you use a lot of "this person is scummy because they do [x behavior] as scum", but that doesn't actually work as an argument unless they don't also do it as town. like i distinctly remember durga flexing about not reading the setup and being frustrated at scumreads in past town games as well

also, why did you feel the need to post reads on everyone at this point in the game? there's a lot of responses that kinda just feel like reads for the sake of having reads (maniac, pyxxy, rdr) and i'm wondering why you chose to allocate your time like this instead of focusing on specific strong reads

That's not what I said. I'd be sadder to miskill most people more than Maniac. However, I'd definitely rather get scum over miskilling Maniac. So if I think someone is scummy enough and Maniac is towny enough, I'm not going to vote for him.

I think Sabi is being very solve-y right now and I'm guessing will continue to be. And then for TFB and Jamie, my impression is that they don't lose steam late game which is a huge problem for town.
