The reason why I don't think what AS did was scummy was because I don't see how scum would benefit by drawing attention to themselves by pointing out they have a "mind-blowing power", and then make themselves stand out further by arguing that no one else should claim the same. As of now, I do not support an AS lynch - I only want to figure out if she is really being inconsistent or not. Is that idea really so hard to grasp?
One of those situations was a much smaller version of the other, though. Logically, then, you would apply the whole to the part: decide what is good for the town as a whole, and then apply that general strategy to the individual level. However, you didn't do this.AngrySquirrel wrote:Why? Those are two separate scenarios each with their own set of information available.
The only way I can see how that would make sense is if, somehow, the general strategy for the town doesn't apply to you - that your either scum or an independent role. However, that conclusion doesn't make sense, since I doubt that you would play a nontown role so badly as to draw so much attention to yourself so early. Hence, it doesn't make any sense.
Moving on, my power is just about as vanilla as you get. So, since I don't think anyone else claimed a nonvanilla power, that makes AS unique, then. Is the uniqueness of your power the reason why you don't think the general town strategy applies to you, AS?
Finally, voting. I agree that we should vote early and often. After preforming a quick re-read, I found this:

That was quite a sudden change of tune, there, Angua. In one post, you think boomfrog is pretty towny, but two posts later you're thinking about voting for him? That, plus the fact that you seem to be doing your best to fade into the background of the discussion and not step on anyone's toes, strikes me as either uncertainty or yes-manning. Good enough for a vote in this game.
