Personally, I would 'buy it' much more easily if you did give your actual reasons. I might occasionaly disagree with you, but I would not suspect you for it or claim that you had no reasons for your vote. I think that a 'vague' or not-hard-evidence reason is still much better than a 'magic scumdar' reason.Sungura, in North Pole/Vanilla spoilers wrote:You want Amy meta? fine, have it. Normally, my "reasons" are weak because i pick out scum based on slight phrasing nuances that are hard to explain, I've tried, and people don't believe me and say I have no reason for my vote. But, these slight nuances and "vibes" if you will are the ones that are right, "actual evidence" tends to surface later, if they are left alive, which I can add, but the initial is the slight variances. When I'm forced to a position where I need a lot of "actual evidence" it is much more likely I am wrong because doing that forces me to look at exactly not the nuances, but the "hardcore" issues.
But apparently you've had a lot of experiences where it backfired... so I guess that was just me stating a personal preference.
