You haven't posted apart from to answer the questions, so here's a more general one - what sort of things for you would distinguish someone being town from being scum and what weight would you put on them? For example, some things might be posting frequency, aggressiveness, defensiveness, faulty logic?
Yup. i'm new here, never played mafia before on these fora.
I'm not sure what posting frequency has to do with probability of scummyness, i'm personally quiet unless I have something of import to say.
Aggression against others without a good rationale is suspicious.
Defense of self is not suspicious.
Defense of others without rationale is suspicious.
Aggression against self is silly, but might be tactically useful, though i draw a blank as to how.
Faulty logic is suspicious, the more so the more cleverly it's hidden.

Male, but i'm not particularly picky about pronouns.

To clarify, I meant that both active and passive lurkers ought be lynched in most games, but given the small number of mislynches we are afforded, i don't think that's the case here. (This is a change in opinion after Jayhsu's analysis)

I'm a natural lurker, unless the discussion comes up with something i feel the need to comment on, one post a day is probably the most you can expect from me.
