"Bad" as in "bad at the game" or "evil Damo buddying town Jamie" ?
I don't think the goal is to buddy necessarily, but the latter.
In what way is damo making an unexplained, confident, early townread scum!damo?
It smelled more like damo trying to act like town damo than it did like town damo.

cause the point chaqa made seems legit
So in the scenario where I am mafia listing easy D1 kills in the hope of getting them DKed, do you think I listed only town?
no cause that's dumb as fuck
Then why do you like Chaqa's point when his point was that I might be listing players I think are easy mis-kills? Why do you think as mafia I would list my easy to kill teammates?

So you are town because of a trust tell?
Why reveal that?
I won't always use a trust tell when I'm town. (Often I'll get by from tryharding and being useful)
But in this context I kind of want to be a useless lurksack, so it's the perfect game to conftown myself and get nightkilled without being a distraction to other townies analysis.
does scum flum do this? idr
He's definitely talked about this trust tell thing before, for whatever that's worth

Bozo if you're handing out wine I drink moscato although I am more of a moonshine fan.

Why
Probably because people have been cooped up over the holidays/between terms/in the weird interstitial space between when normal social patterns end in mid-December and before they begin in mid-January. That in addition to the omicron wave has probably kept most people more inside than usual, which means less in-person interaction and more zoom interaction. The lack of engaging external activity leads to attempts to self-soothe with easy dopamine fixes, suppressing serotonin levels. The omicron surge echoing the early pandemic and first winter stresses out the subconscious, so baseline levels of cortisol and other stress hormones begin to rise and the adrenal medulla begins to tense up slightly. As a result, the id wants to act out, but the superego is too exhausted to really be effective anymore, leaving the job to the ego. The ego only has the rudimentary defense mechanisms of desperate humor and attention seeking, and the rest is left as an exercise to the reader.
Thank you Doc's castle, I benefited greatly from this useless psychological "assessment".

I'm glad to hear it. You need as much help as you can get, but I truly believe that you can be cured.

This game got serious fast! Well done.

I would assume the votes on DeathLlama are jokes, except that the people on that wagon take themselves too seriously. And the Durga votes are actually all jokes, though.

I think it specifically refers to two scum pretending to be in conflict so that town will conclude that they can't both be on the scumteam.

In the Forum Games section where all the threads are listed, there's an icon to the left of the thread title that will take you your last unread post (or at least the last page where you read something).

Bob and Bona are two players that I feel like I should have gotten to know by now, but for some reason I haven't. :neutral:

Bob is saying a lot but also nothing, wouldn't be opposed to voting there. Feels weird that DL didn't even participate in the joke phase so I'm also happy keeping my vote here

Would you think that about any push ghug made or only a good one? And do you think ghug's push on boatman was a good one?
For the first one, any push ghug made, although you have a point that scum ghug could be doing it for towncred if aware of his own meta enough, the fact the scum ghug is super not pushy and more jokey is a difference.
For the second one, Not particularly ,it d1, there was an emotional component to him coming back to questioning again, that came off as wanting an answer instead of just asking for the sake of doing so to appear active.
Okay, I actually think scum!ghug is more likely to be serious early, but I see where you're coming from.

I know the subject matter of the push is sort of whatever because it's so early, but can you let me know if you think it seemed like ghug was misrepresenting the way boatman defended himself? It seemed really odd to me but nobody else seems to care, and deathllama even +1'd ghug's offending post, so I want someone else's opinion.
Well it was odd, and illogical, and I made a post about it to the god QT, but it didn't seem like a purposeful misrepresentation. I think doing that push is a relatively good look for ghug even though the push itself was poor. DL8 +1ing that of all things is odd though...

Ghug was being serious and very literal reading it again.
I also think tbf answers later on explain his point too. I do get somewhat where Ghug is coming and is trying to get a clear answer. I do buy tbf's later posts on uhh page 11 about the scrutiny.
I don't think ghug was misrepresenting and I think the fault lies in that miscommunication of serious versus jokey.
Yeah, basically this.

Bonatogether
Chaqa
DeathLlama
DemonRHK
Donny Dude
goldfinger
Hellenic Riot

I'm gonna need to explain why you have Donny and Rivera on here but not Bob, theflyingboat, Flum or Fox, please.
Was wondering that myself tbh
