BoomFrog starts the game busy, which is fine. Those things he does chime in on are generally okay to start as well.
Eventually we get BoomFrog's first reads list
. Most of his reads make sense. Others, not as much.
- freezeblade is "in the townie club" - why?
- I am on the townie side of neutral despite being referred to as "a man of low character". Throughout the Day, I continually slide further and further towards scum while it seems others generally agree that I am becoming more townie if anything (as is my usual course, I suppose).
- His read (and vote) on Znirk struck me as out of place. At the time, I immediately went back to read Znirk's one post to find where he was "digging in the mud", and found nothing. He explains shortly after that Znirk was attacking LaserGuy for faulty reasons, but unless he suspected Znirk was neutral, that doesn't jive with his own read on LaserGuy as mafia.
Overall though, no big deal.
BoomFrog was also reading jimbob as scum. When asked for reasons (on his jimbob, LaserGuy and Znirk reads), BoomFrog replied with this
. His reason was that jimbob tricked him last game, then comes down strongly on jimbob for bugging him about his reads when jimbob shared those reads of LaserGuy and Znirk. This pings me not only because he didn't answer the question, but because this is again inconsistent with any scumteam that could be forming in BoomFrog's mind. He's not actually hunting scum (and shortly thereafter calls jimbob town).
BoomFrog's next reads list
calls me scum, presumably buddies with LaserGuy? I was voting LaserGuy at the time. Anyway, he gives some reasons for his suspicion of me, but nothing there didn't exist before - all the meat of it is regarding my first post. I asked him a question
about my recent content (since clearly something must have changed his mind, right?), but received no answer despite him commenting on my Madge read in her defense (so he must have read the post).
Then there's his "in case of my death" post, which isn't really a scummy thing to do, but does not consider DethStalker being scum as even an option. BoomFrog is voting for DethStalker at this time.
Overall, I see a lot of reasons to believe BoomFrog is scum, and nothing to make me believe he is town. Someone mentioned that he's being more helpful this game, but I don't even see that - he's being less direct and less earnest in his scumhunting, and that's the key here. Maybe I should have pushed this yesterday instead of Madge. In any case, I do believe DethStalker is likely town, especially if BoomFrog is scum, so I'd rather do this. I realize deadline is in an hour, but if you like this case, make your vote. Since a tie just initiates an extension, there is no risk.
