So, let's make this nice and clear, shall we?
Misnomer: jayhsu, kill "unsuccessful"
Lorenz: implies Ibarra
a-wan: prepared to claim now there are four claims out there
softchews: wary of kill claiming, but doesn't mind it
@a-wan, I would have also thought that Lorenz choosing to kill jayhsu would have been the more logical decision, but he's also implied that he didn't want to be too obvious with his kill to counter scum doctoring. I don't think either claim would make more "sense" - jayhsu would have been obvious, so Ibarra would have been less likely to be interferred with, but then that's what a scum doctor might have thought, were they to have decided to protect someone on the Lorenz vote, and down that road lies a game of second-guessing that as far as I'm concerned makes them both quite logical.
For the record, my reasons for picking Ibarra were fourfold; first, the leftfield nature of the target. Ibarra hadn't really done anything to stand out, unlike say jayhsu and weiyaoli's arguing or a-wan, NaR, Dr Ug and myself getting picked for the committee. I'd like to think (and still would) that a townie should be trying to do as much as they can to help, but Ibarra wasn't particularly radical when he replaced in, By lying low and trying not to attract attention, he probably wasn't going to get killed during the night and thus there probably wasn't going to be any protection there. Secondly, try reading this post with the idea in your mind that its author is town:
Ibarra wrote:I see merit in the case against more_people, but I think that Lorenz is the scummiest among the bunch.
As such I'm afraid that voting for Lorenz could make more_people shift his vote to make a tie.
On the other hand, If it is a tie and one of the two are lynched, chances are the one who wasn't lynched is scum.
Deadline is around 9 hours 30 minutes time, so there should be some activity before the deadline - I hope.
Doesn't quite work, methinks. Thirdly, he didn't vote me onto the selection committee. Ok so that one is a bit silly but I remember pointing it out at the time and it was my remembering of that event that got me looking in his direction when his name dropped onto my list of people who hadn't really stuck their toes out.
Finally, since he seemed so desperate to try and get Lorenz up to at least a tied vote, I couldn't help but wonder whether or not I was actually looking at scum voting town, not just scum bussing scum as I had been viewing most votes. Knowing now that two people in the middle of the Lorenz wagon were scum has stopped me from going at his throat with a hatchet today, although obviously it can't prove him town. I just thought that having that confirmation available for everyone, Lorenz especially, would be rather useful. Also apologies if this is a bit skittery (is it me or do I apologise for something in every single one of my posts?) but I'm out all day tomorrow and wanted to get this out in the time I had this evening so I've rushed it (again).
