Before all else...

In my mind, it seems like if the doctor is the WW, then it is in his best interest to use his power in such a way that it will not block the mafia kill (for instance, doctor the person he ends up killing), and it has not seemed like he has done this. In my mind, based on actions that are apparently confirmed, mpolo is not the WW.
A-Wan, here's a curiosity question, have you ever played as SK? Looking Town is more important than letting a few kills slide. In Smalltown, even if you're scum, you have to make logical actions and choices on what roles are in play.
Admittedly, I've never been SK before. I agree that looking town is always most important. However, that doesn't mean that all other goals are out the window. The longer a game goes, the more likely any scum is to get caught, so more kills are better. mpolo could have easily justified targeting Lorenz last night by saying that Lorenz was towniest and Ibarra was too obvious a target. He also didn't need to point out that he had targeted Lataro last night. He could have said that he targeted Ibarra directly and no one would have been able to catch him.
Next off, there's this:

I'm questioning if you're town if you even realize the situation we're in.
You say you need to come up with more content (especially as I said, tomorrow even if we lynch scum today, we're still in a potentially bad position) then... wait for my content despite the fact you don't even have two true scumreads when there's two scum at least left assuming you... aren't one? To top it off, it's practically sheeping.
I'm not sure why waiting for your post is scummy. You had given very little content at that point, but you had promised to, so waiting to see what you said was...exactly what everyone was doing (except Lataro who had already voted). I don't see the point of this one.
mpolo wrote:If he's going to be modkilled, we save ourselves the problem, don't we? As a result, I'd rather not bandwagon a lurker out of the game that the mod is going to take care of.
I'm not sure what the criticism is. Everyone was discussing whether or not to lynch VF, but he was saying there was no need because he had shown zero activity and the mod would take care of it. If everyone was going to lynch you, but you hadn't posted since D1, I expect people would be saying the same thing about you right now.
Thirdkoopa wrote:And then there's the Miller thing which I covered.
Remind me what the miller thing is. He said that your role was like a miller? I'm not sure what's scummy about that. Why would scum want to accuse you of being town?
Thirdkoopa wrote:And then the hammer with little to say which could be taken as bussing...
That could be seen as busing, though it is clearly documented that he had been out of town and was reading through a large amount of content and voting on who he thought was scummiest before he had actually counted up votes. This is neutral for me. Certainly more neutral than not at least agreeing that roband was scummy or saying that you thought it would be a bad idea to lynch roband.
Thirdkoopa wrote:Wei's leaning towards Neutral to Scum. All too... neutral, for a start, and I'll elaborate more on him when I have the time (this post already took up like two hours of my life with being half asleep)
Mpolo's leaning towards pretty scummy for all of the reasons I've stated above (and more I could nitpick) basically doing what Wei is. What's hard to decide is what's better - Going for the person who gives Null tells which might be a key more on the WW, or just going for someone who's generally scummy more?
The only point that even kind of landed for mpolo in your analysis was the hammer, but that, as I said, seems neutral considering the circumstances and at worst puts him as mafia, but isn't Lataro a much better candidate for mafia than mpolo? And if it comes to deciding whether weiyaoli has acted more like WW than mpolo, isn't weiyaoli a better candidate?
All told, this game seems to be in the hands of TK and Lataro. I highly doubt mpolo is WW. Hammering is a mafia tell, not a WW tell. TK, you have said that WW should want to appear town. I think no one has tried played more vanilla than weiyaoli. He has the WW tells.
And the deadline is extended until Misnomer says it's night. I would at least like to see Lataro confirm that he wants to stay with mpolo over weiyaoli.
