I'm not sure whether I buy SDK's claim to have accidentally caused hammer. He is usually a pretty thorough player, so not keeping an eye on where the lead vote is seems a bit dubious. Not enough to say that he is definitely scum yet, but still suspicious.
I do tentatively agree with SDK's subsequent comments re. mpolo's target being an SK, but I don't think is hard and fast. It's possible that it was deliberately phrased by Sabrar to prevent mpolo guessing his target's alignment.
I really don't like Yoloswag currently. He's using arguments against me that FMPOV can just as easily be applied to himself. Take for example his own voting record: D1 - Vote 1 on the LaserGuy wagon (no issues here), Vote 2 on dimochka (confirmed townie), Vote 3 on me (can't prove this, but also a townie vote), Vote 4 is back on dimochka. D2 - Vote 1 on me, Vote 2 on mpolo (confirmed indie), Vote 3 on Carlington (confirmed town), after his claim. He also threatened to vote Gopher had it not been for Zyth's confirmation of Gopher's alignment. So, of all his votes, the only ones that weren't on people who have been confirmed as non-scum were his very first pseudo-random vote on LaserGuy and his votes on me. Another example: Yoloswag pointed out the 3 out of 4 non-scum in my reads list. He hasn't posted an ordered scum list, but based on his D2 comments and voting pattern up to the point when Gopher claimed, I would guess that his scummiest reads were me, Carlington, mpolo, and GoP. So, 3 out of 4 confirmed non-scum (assuming we believe Zyth's claim), plus myself. Similarly, mid-way through D1, his scum pool was me, dimochka (Town), boomfrog (Town), GoP (probably Town), frozen (unknown) and Carlington (Town). So yeah, no better.
As others have already pointed out, Yoloswag's suggestion of SDK and I crossvoting is mad. If either of us is not mafia, then mafia quick-hammers the one who isn't mafia and game over, for all intents and purposes (given certain abilities, it might still be possible for the game to last, but I doubt it, and even then, I suspect it would come down to Mafia playing whack a mole with the SK). Let's at least get as much information as we can from claims before starting crazy gambits like that.
As I've stated in previous reads posts, I haven't particularly liked Yoloswag's play anyway, and now that I've looked back at these points, my impression of him has gotten worse. If it weren't for LYLO, I'd be voting for Yoloswag at this point.
For the record, I'm happy with GoP choosing first player.
